9th in the series. Kinsey works to solve a murder 6 years after it has been committed. She also solves another 6 year old case that ties in with the murder. Another great book by Sue.

One of the best of the "alphabet" private eye mysteries I've read to date. Kinsey is in a new job (replacing the aging PI who met a sudden death) and needing to make good on her first investigative case and restore her self confidence. She gets info that seems to exonerate the opposition of murder so resigns herself that finding out "the truth" is more just than winning their case just to keep her position with a law firm. As always, her neighbor (and landlord), the 80+ Henry, adds wonderful character to the story. A variety of interesting witnesses soon become possible suspects til Kinsey's investigative skills find the connection between the murder and the PI's untimely death and point the finger in the right direction.

From Publishers Weekly
Grafton here sets the ever-appealing PI Kinsey Milhone on a quieter, more cerebral path. The hardcover was both Literary Guild and Mystery Guild main selections and a nine-week PW bestseller.

From Kirkus Reviews
California's formidable p.i. Kinsey Millhone (``A'' Is for Alibi, etc.), fired from her comfortable berth with Fidelity Insurance, now rents office space from busy Santa Teresa lawyer Lonnie Kingman. His usual outside investigator Morley Shine has died of a heart attack, and he hires Kinsey to take over the case that Morley was working on. It involves the upcoming trial of David Barney, acquitted of the six-year-old murder of his wife, Isabelle, but now being sued for wrongful death in civil court by Isabelle's first husband, Ken Voigt. Voigt, represented by Lonnie Kingman, is sure that Barney killed Isabelle and wants to keep her considerable fortune out of his hands. Lonnie thinks he has a strong case, buoyed by damning new evidence from drifter Curtis McIntyre. But what Kinsey finds as she begins to probe is a surprising number of people with reasons to hate Isabelle--among them Voigt's second wife, Francesca, and Isabelle's business mentor Peter Weidmann and his overprotective wife, Yolanda. She also uncovers curious gaps in Morley's files and begins to question his ``heart attack,'' as Lonnie's seemingly solid case collapses bit by bit, with her own life on the line in the gritty finale. A sober, resolute Kinsey, romanceless at the moment, and a clever, meaty puzzle--for which the publisher plans a 300,000 first printing. Rack up another winner for Grafton.

Lonnie Kingman is in a bind. He's smack in the middle of assembling a civil suit and the private investigator who was doing his pretrail legwork has just dropped dead of a heart attack. In a matter of weeks the court's statute of limitations will put paid to his case. Five years ago David Barney walked when a jury acquitted him of the murder of his rich wife, Isabelle. Now Kingman, acting as attorney for the dead woman's ex-husband and their child (and sure that the jury made a serious mistake), is trying to divest David Barney of the profits of that murder. But time is running out, and David Barney still swears he's innocent. When Kinsey Millhone agrees to take over Morley Shine's investigation, she thinks it is a simple matter of tying up the loose ends. Morley might have been careless about his health, but he was an old pro at the business. So it comes as a real shock when she finds his files in disarray, his key informant less than credible, and his witnesses denying every having spoken with him. It comes as a bigger shock when she find that every claim David Barney made checks out. But if Barney didn't murder his wife, who did? It would seem the list of candidates is a long one. In life, Isabelle Barney had stepped on a lot of toes. Somewhere out there, a killer wait sto see just what Kinsey will find out.
