I always eagerly await the next Grafton, but I feel like she is getting tired of writing them. This one lacks the excitment of the earlier ones. I hope T is better. This one centers around a little girl whose vivacious (read slutty) mother goes missing. Everyone assumes she has run off with a man. Now the girl is grown and she wants Kinsey to find her mother. Foul play is a given, since it wouldn't be much of a murder mystery otherwise. Disappointing.
Grafton's P.I. Kinsey Millhone has been asked to investigate a cold case involving the disappearance 34 years ago of a "live-wire" young woman, living in a small town with an abusive husband. Her grown-up daughter can't believe her mother would have left her behind, or that in all these years, if she were alive, she wouldn't have contacted her daughter. Kinsey finds that trying to investigate a cold case in a small town, where no one wants to give her a straight answer, is tough. But Kinsey is tough too. A great fast-paced read.
