An extended story line with more subplots than usual for Grafton. Great read!

Thoroughly enjoyed it as I have all of Sue Grafton's books. She writes in a style that the average reader can easily relate to.

Another Great Hit
I am a real fan when it comes to Sue Grafton. I came on her novels by accident and it was love at first. As of now I have all of her alphabet series from A to V and looking for W. Each of her books keeps you on the edge on your seat and you can't put it down until you finish it. "V is for Vengeange" is one of her best , if there is a Best. They are all so good it's almost impossible to choose. Her mysteries are exciting with a dollop of homour. She has several friends that appear in each book and sometimes play a part in solving her various cases. I love her work and want to get them all.
