Although this book doesn't have the "action" some of the other books have, I enjoyed it a lot. I like the way paths cross and mysteries are solved.
Since this series is set before computers had taken over our lives, the PI has to do the leg work and the searching through paper documents in order to find the facts she needs.
I wonder what will happen when the author runs out of alphabet...
I thought the book was off to a slow start at first and lots of repetition of what has happened in other books, but then not everybody has read ALL the other books so settled down to enjoy the story, which I did. I enjoy the Kinsey Millhone character and her "Older" friends very much. They are funny, sensible, and down to earth. These are just a good read book because there is always just enough mystery and thrills to go along with it all....
I hope Sue has plans for when she gets to Z because the last two books of this series have just gotten better and better.
You couldn't ask for better mysteries than she's given us in "V is for Vengeance" and now, "W is for Wasted."
I am seriously amazed at how an author can write a series of 23 books, from A to W, using the same main character (Kinsey Millhone) and every story continues to be fresh and new! I'm not sure how she does it, but Sue Grafton has talent, that's for sure. I've read every Kinsey Millhone book and have yet to get bored.
Another great story featuring private investigator Kinsey Millhone where she gets involved with some local homeless folks, as well as a medical research professor, and even an old boyfriend comes to town. Good, old-fashioned sleuthing is always involved (remember, this is before the advent of cell phones and computers), as well as one-on-one action. An interesting and surprising ending doesn't disappoint.
