I think this is one of the best in the Kinsey Millhone series. Good characters, gripping writing, clever ending. In later books/letters, I think Grafton loses some of the creativity and drive seen in the earlier books.

A short, fun read. This book zooms by as a fascinating study of human nature and ends with a big, scary bang. A great cast of characters entertains and adds plenty of smoke and mirrors for readers to puzzle their way through.

Interesting twist in this Kinsey Millhone mystery: about a third of the way through the book, Kinsey's client Bobby Callahan dies in an auto accident. Bobby originally hired Kinsey Millhone to investigate a near-fatal auto accident that he was involved in about six months previously. Bobby felt that someone staged the first car accident in an attempt to kill him. Convinced that Bobby's death might not be an accident, Kinsey continues the investigation to search for the truth about Bobby's death.

And is there something suspicious about Kinsey's landlord Henry's new lady friend Lila Sams?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a good mystery and I also enjoyed the continuing development of Kinsey's character and her friends in santa Teresa.

It was a good book, however I was disappointed with the fact of how the Kinsey and Bobby both told everyone that he suspected someone tried to kill him AND that he hired Kinsey to find out. I felt that was a major no-no in that type of business. Even though I shook my head in disbelief each time the comment was made it was still a good read.

I thought this was an okay book. I had been wanting to get the entire series and start from 'A' but not so sure now. It started out somewhat interesting and then at the end it just fizzled out - didn't tell why the guy was a murderer

C is for Corpse was another entertaining Sue Grafton novel. If you liked A and B you'll like this one as well! I didn't have the mystery figured out until the end along with Kinsey. The plot line isn't the most stimulating, but it's fluff entertainment which isn't a bad thing.

I'm a bit late coming to read Sue Grafton's series, but I'm so glad I've started it. I think of the first three, this is my favorite. I love Kinsey Millhone's demeanor and her abbreviated lifestyle, with her small office, small car and her small home and a sleeping bag on the couch for a bed. Her investigative techniques are to be admired, and I wouldn't mind hanging out with her and eating in some of the places where she eats!

I really loved this book!

Read this a while ago but all of Sue Grafton's alphabet series are good mysteries so I would recommend them. I like Kinsey's spunk and how she goes about finding out the solution to the crime at hand. A good read.

I am listening to the audio book versions of Sue Grafton's alphabet series. Near the end of the book, the narrator really gets into the story as the heroine is solving the mystery and it really blows me away. I just love listening to her voice. Judy Kay is a phenomenal actress and I just love her narration. The story was good too. The typical whodunit, but with a twist. I never figured out who it was going to be until she practically told us. Definitely will read/listen to again!

Not the best in teh series so far, it is a quick read and has some twists and turns but it is a long shot that this would happen and the end wraps up in a neat bow in about five pages. That always irks me!

C IS FOR CALCULATED
How do you go about solving an attempted murder when the victim has lost a good part of his memory? It's one of Kinsey's toughest cases yet, but she never backs down from a challenge. Twenty-three-year-old Bobby Callahan is lucky to be alive after a car forced his Porsche over a bridge and into a canyon. The crash left Bobby with a clouded memory. But he can't shake the feeling it was no random accident and that he's still in danger.........
C IS FOR CRIME
The only clues Kinsey has to go on are a little red address book and the name "Blackman." Bobby can't remember who he gave the address book to for safe keeping. And any chances of Bobby regaining his memory are dashed when he's killed in another automobile accident just three days after he hires Kinsey.
C IS FOR CORPSE
As Kinsey digs deeper into her investigation, she discovers Bobby had a secret wroth killing for-and unearthing that secret could send Kinsey to her own early death......
THERE IS NO ONE BETTER THAN KINSEY MILLHONE.

Kinsey Millhone, single female, Private Investigator and all-round ordinary person is still recovering from the beating she received solving her last crime (told to us in B is for Burglar). This is later on in 1982 and as part of her recovery programme she is working out at the gym. That's where she sees Bobby Callahan. He is also recovering from a serious accident, and he looks bad. A few months before he lost control of his car and drove off a canyon road killing his friend and almost killing himself. He lost most of his memory in the accident, and as it returns in flashes, he realises that someone was trying to kill him - and could try again.
