I think this is one of the best in the Kinsey Millhone series. Good characters, gripping writing, clever ending. In later books/letters, I think Grafton loses some of the creativity and drive seen in the earlier books.

I thought this was an okay book. I had been wanting to get the entire series and start from 'A' but not so sure now. It started out somewhat interesting and then at the end it just fizzled out - didn't tell why the guy was a murderer

Old book however I just read it for the first time and it is very good. Similar to Stephanie Plum and Janet Evanovich series.

I'm a bit late coming to read Sue Grafton's series, but I'm so glad I've started it. I think of the first three, this is my favorite. I love Kinsey Millhone's demeanor and her abbreviated lifestyle, with her small office, small car and her small home and a sleeping bag on the couch for a bed. Her investigative techniques are to be admired, and I wouldn't mind hanging out with her and eating in some of the places where she eats!

I really loved this book!

Not the best of the series, so far, but not bad. Just a fun read. And really, isn't that what it's all about?

C is for Corpse was another entertaining Sue Grafton novel. If you liked A and B you'll like this one as well! I didn't have the mystery figured out until the end along with Kinsey. The plot line isn't the most stimulating, but it's fluff entertainment which isn't a bad thing.

Read this a while ago but all of Sue Grafton's alphabet series are good mysteries so I would recommend them. I like Kinsey's spunk and how she goes about finding out the solution to the crime at hand. A good read.

I liked Kinsey more in this one than in the last two. Her edge seems to have softened a bit in this one and IMO it makes her a bit more likable. I enjoyed the puzzle a lot, it's been long enough since I read it first that I didn't remember it at all. I made a guess at the murderer and was right, but it was just a guess...we're not shown the motive until very late in the book. The subplot involving Henry is just flat-out funny. Since I was an adult during the 80s, the books don't seem dated to me at all. :-)

Kinsey Millhone, single female, Private Investigator and all-round ordinary person is still recovering from the beating she received solving her last crime (told to us in B is for Burglar). This is later on in 1982 and as part of her recovery programme she is working out at the gym. That's where she sees Bobby Callahan. He is also recovering from a serious accident, and he looks bad. A few months before he lost control of his car and drove off a canyon road killing his friend and almost killing himself. He lost most of his memory in the accident, and as it returns in flashes, he realises that someone was trying to kill him - and could try again.
