As much as she hates to admit it, Kinsey realizes even she's going to need help fending off a hit man and she hires a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, Porsche-driving P.I. who takes his job very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into a case that will lead her to the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal. And in the process will bring her face-to-face with her own mortality.

Feisty private investigator Kinsey Millhone continues to solve mysteries, in this case finding and taking an elderly woman to a nursing home near her daughter. But the lady mysteriously disappears within hours of her arrival. Painfully aware of the fact that a contract has been arranged for her own murder, Kinsey unravels the events of the past clue by clue, narrating the action-filled story in a realistic, easy-to-read, informal style. Less motivated students are sure to appreciate a character with a respectable, exciting job without having had a college education; although Kinsey had police training, her bodyguard freely admits he left high school but later took an equivalency test. This light mystery maintains interest to the end; everything happens quickly.
a must-read...

Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series keeps getting better. I couldn't put this book down, but didn't want it to end. There are a couple intertwining plots that keep you guessing.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characterization in this book, especially that of the crazy mother who, at the beginning of the book, is missing in the desert. The second mystery is that someone is trying to kill Kinsey! I loved there being a double plot to this one. Kudos to Grafton!

This is a great story in the "Kinsey Millhone Series". This mystery kept me turning the pages and I finished the book in two days! Could not put it down! Sue Grafton's description of her surroundings and her ability to create "humorous characters" keeps the story rolling!

PI Kinsey Millhone is searching for a missing 83 year old woman. When she finds her, Agnes is suffering from dementia and seems scared to death about something. She is relocated closer to her daughter and immediately escapes the nursing home. Strange things come to Kinsey's attention and suddenly she is investigating Agnes' life because nothing seems to add up regarding this family. While this is going on, Kinsey finds out that someone she's once hunted down has put out a contract on her life. In between running for her life, she's nvestigating Agnes' troubles.

This is a short novel but one of the better ones involving Kinsey. Very suspenseful and Kinsey even gets to experience a little romance.

Kinsey almost plays second fiddle in this one, getting into jams by herself and getting out of them with the help of others. It seemed as though she was just along for the ride. Nevertheless, it was an excellent story, well worth the read.

Good and bad things seem to be coming in threes for Kinsey Millhone: on her thirty-third birthday she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of ex-con Tyrone Patty's hit list. It's the last that convinces Kinsey even she can't handle whoever's been hired to whack her, and she gets herself a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porsche-driving P.I. who takes guarding Kinsey's body very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into her case. And before it's over, she'll unearth the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, come fact-to-face with her own mortality. . . .

A rich, complex, and gripping tale in which Kinsey's grit is tested to its utmost as she unearths the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, comes face-to-face with the grisly fact of her own mortality. "G" is for guilt and guile, for greed and grief and the Grim Reaper. And "G" is for good: very, very good.
