If you want just a quick read, nothing too deep, you can't beat the
Sue Grafton aphabet series. You can skip around from letter to letter and not get lost.

An early book in Grafton's alphabet series - her usual fine writing, and her quirky but lovable detective, Kinsey Millhone - but there were lots of loose threads left hanging at the end, and the ending itself wasn't as satisfying as some I've read of hers.

Kinsey Milhone thinks it will be a cinch to find wealthy, missing Elaine Bolt. Elaine's estranged sister needs her missing sibling to sign a legal document. Apparently Elaine has already left Santa Teresa for her yearly trip to Boca Raton. An odd houseguest there swears Elaine arrived and is off traveling. But if so, why hasn't anyone heard from her in several months?

These mysteries are a lot of fun and the main character is really easy to relate to. They manage to be fun and exciting without being over the top. I would definitely recommend the series, I think she is up to U!

This is the 2nd of the series about Kinsey Millhone, a private detective. I have come to like her very much. In this book she is trying to track down a wealthy widow who has disappeared. The search takes her from California to a condo in Florida.

In what seems like a quick case, Kinsey Millhone begins to track down a missing person. Red Herrings start popping up everywhere and the end is great big surprise!
This is my first Sue Grafton book and I am hooked! There a great sense of pacing and convincing scenarios in this series and I mean to keep going through the whole alphabet! Great summer reading!

Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey's case goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers, the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey's clues begin to form a capital M -- not for missing, but for murder: and plenty of it.

Cute book. Sue Grafton puts so many different elements into her mystery books that they keep you guessing. They are so easy and fun to read. Kinsey Millhouse, PI, the main character makes you laugh out loud with her commenteries on her personal life, wardrobe, and eating habits.

Grafton was cruising along wonderfully, dropping clues and red herrings like Hansel and Gretel dropped bread crumbs. Then came the ending, and I was left a little disappointed. It felt rushed and sloppy. For instance, Kinsey left her keys in the car ignition but had them in her pocket a few minutes later. It was still good, but I felt it could have been better.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Beverly Danziger looked like an expensive, carefully wrapped package from a good but conservative shop. Only her compulsive chatter hinted at the nervousness beneath her cool surface. It was a nervousness out of all proportion to the problem she placed before Kinsey Millhone. There was an absent sister. A will to be settled--a matter of only a few thousand dollars. Mrs. Danziger did not look as if she needed a few thousand dollars. And she didn't seem like someone longing for a family reunion.

Kind of a fan of Kinsey. I've read sporadically and not in any order. This book was written apparently before the advent of cell phones. Kinsey sure could have used one this time. This seems more violent than others I remember, she ends up in the hospital, but gets the bad people.

Another win for Kinsey.

Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey's case goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers, the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey's clues begin to form a capital M--not for missing, but for murder: And plenty of it.

This series of books is great for the beach. The writing is good, but you can still stop just about anywhere along the story without suffering from withdrawl. But make sure that you are undisturbed for the last few chapters because she will suck you in like quicksand.

Grafton writes a good book. You do not have to read the series in order. I've read later books and came back to read some of her earlier books. The books have a good story line and move along at a reasonable pace. Great for a plane, beach or poolside.
