This was one of the best books that Sue Grafton has written. The main character Kinsey Millhone, PI tries to do a favor for her landlord Henry and ends up traveling across country following some very dangerous people who try to kill her. It is exciting, funny, interesting and easy to read.
L is for Lawless is one of the better Grafton books I have read!! Starting with a records check, Kinsey Millhone takes off into a case revealing a decades old bank heist and the battle between heist partners and estranged offspring!
Plenty of action, believable characters and Grafton's patented sense of "order gone awry".
She is very consistent in this theme but it never gets stale, she usually starts with what seems a simple open and shut case and she is very good at stretching the envelope to create the utmost screwed up excitement!! And, with alphabet series, you don't even have to go in order!
