I liked this one best of the 5 I've read thus far. The extra detail didn't seem to go on as long any more, often just enough to give you a clear picture in your mind instead of cause your mind to wander. The mystery kept me in thrall until the very end, when it all came together in a surprise ending. Kinsey is still a workaholic, but has begun to reevaluate her life and actually thinks about things other than work and her caseload now. :)
At the beginning, I thought it would bother me that Kinsey was framed to look as if she was on the take, because usually when this happens in a story, all the other characters operate under the false assumption that she's guilty, automatically believing the frame without taking into account that she wouldn't do this, and in the long run it really screws with everything else in the story. It's really a pet peeve of mine... Instead, Kinsey and most of the other primary characters worked to find out what was really going on and who had set her up, which led to a much deeper and intricate plot to be uncovered.
Grafton does it again! This book follows Kinsey Millhone on another adventure, but this time Kinsey is doing the work for herself. She is being framed and doesn't know why. But, as always, she finds out and gets her man!
So far this my favorite in the series. I did not see some of the twists in it. I did wonder about the link from a past death to the current events but again, did not see the connection until a little tid-bit of someone's past was brought to light. And then, you wonder why the person killed one of the characters.
My all time favorite author. She writes a series of books featuring the main character, Kinsey Millhone, a single woman, private detective. Lives in CA and gives us glimpses of that area. Each story has some common characters, lifestyle of Kinsey. She is most focused on the mystery before the romance or sex which I prefer. Read every book and she keeps me waiting for the next in the series. Long live Sue Grafton so we can at least get to the end of the alphabet.
I love the entire Sue Grafton series.... murder mysterys with a human possible twist.
