R is For Ricochet Author:Sue Grafton When wealthy octogenarian Nord Lafferty hires Kinsey Millhone to help his newly paroled daughter find her way back to the straight and narrow after doing time for embezzlement, the Santa Teresa P.I. has no idea what she's getting into. Reba Lafferty's ex-boss, land developer Alan Beckwith, is the man who sent her to prison--so how come she's mee... more »ting him just hours after her release, and treating Kinsey to an X-rated reunion scene played out in his parked Mercedes? And why is he also playing sex games with Reba's formerly best friend, who still works for him? A visit from an old friend from the FBI clears up the mystery--Beckwith is suspected of running a money-laundering game, and they need Reba to make their case by rolling over on him. Itís not until Millhone presents Reba with photographic evidence of Beckwith's two-timing that she agrees to do what the Feds want... but she'll only do it her way, which could get a lot of people killed. Grafton fleshes out this well-crafted thriller with a romantic subplot involving a romantic triangle that features Kinsey's elderly landlord Henry, his brother, and a vivacious widow who can't seem to choose between them. Kinsey is also having a spot of romance with handsome cop, Chaney Phillips. Narrated by Judy Kaye.« less
This is a great listen. Might take you a bit to get into the plot but once in, you can't wait to see what comes next. If you love Kinsey Milhone, you will love this book. It may not be the best in the Alphabet series by Sue Grafton but it certainly held my interest. I have a long car commute to work and it made the time fly by. I definitely recommend it.
