It was like being in the presence of a snake, first hissing its presence and then coiled in readiness. I didn't dare turn my back or take my eyes off of her. I stood very still. I let go of my fight-or-flight defense and decided to play dead. If you run from a bear, it gives chase. That's the nature of the beast. Likewise a snake. If I moved, she might strike. When her elderly neighbour Gus has an accident, Kinsey Millhone is relieved when his niece organises a nurse for him. Verifying a background check on Solana Rojas doesn't turn up anything suspicious. But Kinsey's not convinced - especially when Gus seems to be getting worse under his nurse's tender care. Realising that her neighbourly concern isn't going to get her past the front door Kinsey turns to more unorthodox methods to step up her investigation. And gets far more than she bargained for ...Not only is Solana not who she seems to be but she's more than able to play Kinsey at her own game. Suddenly the tables have turned and it's Kinsey who's on the wrong side of the law ...

Review of T is for Trespass
Female-sleuth Kinsey Millhone is on the trail of a woman who has stolen the identity of another and is using it to commit elder abuse, fraud and theft. Kinsey must stay one step ahead of this psychopath to save the life of her elderly neighbor Gus Vronsky, and ultimately her own.
This was difficult for me to read due to the subject matter of elder abuse, but I thought it was well-written and quite the thriller: a real page-turner. It was good to spend some time with Kinsey again and I'm looking forward to the "U" book.

Another great book by Sue Grafton
This is a super book. You can't help but love Kinsey Milhone. Grefton makes you feel as if her characters are friends of yours, and you want to share more and more of their lives. The plots are always unpredictable and Kinsey is spunky, brave and adorable. I can't wait for the next book to come out!

At first I was not going to order this book, because the description sounded boring. But I am so glad I did finally order it and read it! The book is downright scary with what can happen to the elderly with both identify theft and financial rip-off. It is amazing how deep identify theft can be buried and what all they can do financially. The book has a very good story plot. I strongly recommend reading it.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-09-17 The 20th Kinsey Millhone crime novel (after 2005's S Is for Silence), a gripping, if depressing, tale of identify theft and elder abuse, displays bestseller Grafton's storytelling gifts. By default, Millhone, "a private investigator in the small Southern California town of Santa Teresa," assumes responsibility for the well-being of an old neighbor, Gus Vronsky, injured in a fall. After Vronsky's great-niece arranges to hire a home aide, Solana Rojas, Millhone begins to suspect that Rojas is not all that she seems. Since the reader knows from the start that an unscrupulous master manipulator has stolen the Rojas persona, the plot focuses not on whodunit but on the battle of wits Millhone wages with an unconventional and formidable adversary. Grafton's mastery of dialogue and her portrayal of the limits of good intentions make this one of the series' high points, even if two violent scenes near the end tidy up the pieces a little too neatly.

Publishers Weekly, 2007-12-24 Tony award-winner Judy Kaye has been the voice of private eye Kinsey Millhone since the beginning, and 19 titles later, she's still an inspired choice, capturing the character's unique combination of femininity and ruggedness, intelligence, street savvy and self-confidence with just a hint of uncertainty. Trespass is possibly a series best. Both reader and sleuth are working at full tilt as Kinsey interacts with a large cast. Her foremost opponent is the devious and homicidal black widow who has spun a web around the detective's aged and infirmed next door neighbor. Grafton deviates from Kinsey's narration to delve into the killer's history and mind-set, underlining the seriousness of her threat. Kaye offers a crisp, chillingly cold aural portrait of a sociopath capable of anything. Kaye's spot-on interpretation of the two very different leading characters would be praiseworthy enough, but she's just as effective in capturing the elderly men and women, the screechy landladies, the drawling rednecks, the velvet-tongued smooth operators, the fast talking lawyers and all the inhabitants of Kinsey's world.
