Having read all of the Sue Grafton Kinsey Millhone's books ("A" through "U"), I found this one to be just as good as the first. Sue Grafton is not a dummy when it comes to writing mysteries or in knowing how to keep her series readers interested, even after 20 books. She is able to switch things up just enough to still keep you interested and in the storyline and the outcome. Ms. Grafton is able to write a good mystery without blood, gore, or irrelevant romances that just gunk up the plot. I'm looking forward to V through Z, but wonder what in the world she's going to pull out of her hat after Z!
I've read them all and, frankly, I think this one is the best. Have been reading now nearly non-stop in the middle of holiday plans and begrudging every minute away from it. Tight story that holds your attention throughout. Kinsey is so human and so vulnerable here. A really remarkable read!
Sue Grafton has done it again, Kinsey is an old friend! I have read every book and love them. I thought about keeping this book, then decided that sharing was much more fun.
If you love mysteries and heroines that have a "real" quality to them you will love Sue Grafton's books.
I've read all of Sue Grafton's books..."U" is the most recent. It is a great read and certainly continues the saga of Kinsey Millhone's experiences. If youve read any of her books, you'll love this one, and if you haven't yet read any, try "U" is for UNdertow. I'm sure if you do, you will opt to read all the others as well.
I believe this was her best one yet! Of course since I started with 'A' about 2 1/2 yrs, in between reading other books, I finally got caught up to 'T' a few months ago. I anxiously waited for 'U'. I don't ordinarily buy a book as soon as it comes out. I usually wait until they come available on here, or my sister buys them first, and loans it to me, or if nothing else, I go to the public library. This time, I bought it in hardcover at over $20, as a Christmas present to myself! :) And was NOT disappointed in the least. I think I read this one faster than any of the others too. Now the wait for V begins...ugh! 2 more yrs. I can't wait.
