This was a very good book. The story takes many twists and turns as the PI Kinsey Millhone is asked to help find out who the teenager Jane Doe was that was stabbed and dumped in a quarry and never identified.

This book was inspired by a real case in Santa Barbara, California.
Very easy and enjoyable reading on many levels. The main character Kinsey is funny, and quirky. She tells you about her life as she works on her case.

Hard to put down this book! The writing gets better with each book, and the storyline in this one is based on a real story. There are twists and turns that you don't anticipate, even if you've read the other books in this series and are familiar with her writing style.

If you like Kinsey Millhone, you will like this one. Even her 85 year old hunk of a landlord, retired baker Henry and his irritable older brother having a romance with the elderly bosssy Hungarian Rosie, the owner/chef of Rosies cafe and her "Hunglish". A lot more about Kinseys family and background. Not as tight as other Graftons

Eighteen years ago, the bound and decomposed body of a young white female was found near a quarry off California's Highway 1, but the case was never solved. Now, the two men who found the body are nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement and want one last shot at the case. Being old and ill, they hire Kinsey Millhone, a woman private eye, to do the legwork for them. They would be happy even just to identify the victim, but the search turns out to be dangerous.

This is one book in the alphabetically-titled series featuring Millhone. She is smart, independent, tough, yet vulnerable, and funny. I like to imagine her as a younger version of the author, whose picture is on the dust jacket of this book.

The Kinsey Millhone series is very well written and one thing that's great is that you can pick up one book and not miss anything from previous books, i.e., you don't have to read these in order, if you can't. Kinsey is a smart private detective, doesn't get easily distracted by romance, and isn't afraid to carry a gun. A good series for those who like light crime novels without too much violence and/or gore.

I have only begun on Grafton's series about Kinsey Millhone and this wasn't a good one, by page 70 it was so boring I couldn't stay focused on the pages, she just describes everything under the sun and then the sun too.

By 50 pages the story should be getting a grip on you and keeping you ready to sit on the edge of your chair waiting for the thiller to get better but this one just doesn't even move at a good rate---just a slow rate.

Not giving up on her series because I've read some good reviews about them but this one is just boring.

Grafton departs from her usual formula to include facts from a real case, an unsolved homicide from August 1969 in Santa Barbara County, CA. She succeeds in mixing the known facts with her vivid imagination to form a tight, cohesive story and a darned good read.

4 stars out of five - another Grafton bestseller.
Two policemen out hunting discover a teenage girl's body near a quarry off California's

Highway 1. Eighteen years later, the two recruit Millhone to help them try to identify the

victim. Stacey Oliphant, now retired from the force, and Con Dolan, unwillingly sidelined by

heart trouble, are as quarrelsome as an old married couple, but they both desperately want

to find the killer in the quarry case. Their inquiries lead the trio from Santa Teresa to

Quorum, a town in the desert near the Arizona border. At the time of the murder, a wrecked

red convertible was found near the crime scene-stolen from an auto shop in Quorum. When

Millhone and her cohorts talk to the grumpy shop owner, Ruel McPhee, and his charming son,

Cornell, they get little information. Visits around town and probing conversations reveal

various family secrets and covert liaisons, until the somewhat precipitous unmasking of the

killer. Grafton briefly shoehorns in Millhone's interactions with her lost family And a

marvelously successful addition is the twosome of Dolan and Oliphant. Their deftly rendered

relationship is a delight; with any luck, the duo will appear in future Millhone mysteries.

A main selection of the Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club and Mystery Guild, and a BOMC

featured selection.

"Inspired by a still unsolved murder in Santa Barbara County over thirty years ago, Sue Grafton weaves a compelling and suspenseful story.
Her well paced plot is filled with clever twists and turns, vivid, laugh-out-loud scenes, and witty and irreverent dialogue. But it's Ms Grafton's brilliant characterizations and delicious descriptions that really make this novel stand out and sparkle, and no one does it better." amazon review

The woman was young, her hands were bund with a lenght of wire, there were multiple s tab wounds and her throat had been slashed. After months the case remained unsolved. The two men who found her body 18 years ago getting ready to retire one last shot on the case. Old and ill they need somone to do the leg work for them. They turn to Kinsey Millhone.

This is a beautiful gift copy.
She was a "Jane Doe," an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1 in 1969. Surely someone has the key or some knowledge of this murder out there. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff's Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were multiple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the murder remained unsolved.

That was eighteen years ago. Now the two men who found the body, both nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement, want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to help with their legwork and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. They will, they tell her, find closure if they can just identify the victim. Kinsey is intrigued and agrees to the job.

But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what begins with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.

Eerily as of the writing of this book the Jane Doe's murderer has not been found. A forensic sculptor was brought in in an attempt to identify Jane Doe. Sadly, this is based on a true story in Santa Barbara , California. The author Sue Grafton heard about this unsolved murder and became involved.

But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what begins with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.

Q is for Quarry is based on an unsolved homicide that occurred in 1969, and Grafton's interest in the case has generated renewed police efforts. During the past year, the body was exhumed and a nationally known forensic artist did the facial reconstruction that appears in the closing pages of Q is for Quarry. Both Grafton and the dedicated members of the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department are hoping the photograph will trigger memories that may lead to a positive identification.

On the day Jane Doe was reburied, many officers were at the gravesite. "It's eerie," Grafton writes, "to think about the power this woman still has. Here we are, thirty-three years later, and she still wants to go home."

Private investigator Kinsey Millhone has served Sue Grafton well through 16 letters of the alphabet in a perennially popular series that occasionally breaks new ground but more often traverses familiar territory, as is the case here. Two old, ailing cops--one retired, the other disabled--try to breathe some life into an 18-year-old mystery that haunts them both for different reasons. They enlist Kinsey's help in identifying the victim, a young woman who was murdered and left for dead in the old quarry of the title. Neither they nor Kinsey expect that reopening an old case will incite the killer to strike again--not once, but twice. And while the real case of the still-unidentified victim that inspired this fictionalized scenario continues to languish in the cold case file in the Santa Barbara sheriff's office, Grafton's solution is as plausible as any. While the unlikely trio of Millhone and her cranky geezer sidekicks offers a few chuckles, the inner reaches of Kinsey's soul remain largely inaccessible to her as well as to the reader, which will probably not bother most of Kinsey's or Grafton's many admirers.
