This one is really as great as all the rest of Sue Grafton's that I have read! Chock full of illicit affairs,family melodrama,red herrrings and breathtaking action,it has it all!
Bailey Fowler is a fugitive from justice,claiming innocence in the murder of a wild girl years ago but the killer could be anybody in the small lurid town on the California coast. Kinsey Millhone decides to take the case that gets in all kinds of scrapes and hairy corners!
Great case for Kinsey, though also dangerous as an almost 20 year old murder comes back to haunt a small town when the prison escapee accused of the crime gets caught under his new alias for a crime he didn't commit. Small town dwellers will love this intrigue and understand the "everybody knows everybody" politics as well as the "locked and loaded" mentality when the accused again escapes and more murders pile up!
