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!

I liked how Kinsey went about digging up clues in this cold case. None of the characters here are meant to be likable, and the murderer became obvious to me about halfway through, but it was still a good puzzle. Now that I'm reading them in order fairly close together, I realize that when I read them the first time around I must have glossed over a lot of info about Kinsey. I distinctly recall that upon reading one of the later books, she pulls some shady stunt and I thought "no Kinsey wouldn't do that" - but now I see yeah, she totally would. She's more complex than I remembered.

I'm noticing with this series that the books tend to drag until about over half-way through. Having said that, Grafton's writing style is humorous enough that it keeps you reading. This particular installment in the series was pretty good. Easy to figure out "whodunit" towards the end, but good story overall. It dragged a bit more than some of her other books. In the end, if you enjoy P.I. Kinsey Milhone, you'll enjoy this one.
