This was not one of my favorite Grafton novels usually the story line is very interesting and has a lot of suspense this lacked any suspense and it took a while to finish. I would not recommend this book if you have not read other books by this author. Not one of her best.

'Kinsey Milhone was winding her way thru the mts. in a cut-rate rental car, heading south on 395 toward the town of Nota Lake, Ca. where she was going to interview a potential client. ...She should have done something else--she should have turned the car in the direction of home. Instead, she was about to put herself in the gravest jeopardy of her career. When Tom Newquist , a detective in the Nota Lake sheriff's office, died suddenly, the townsfolk were saddened but not surprised: Just shy of 65, Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign. Selma, his widow didn't doubt the coroner's report. But what Selma couldn't accept was not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life. Selma wanted closure and the only way she'd get it was if she found out what it was that had so bedeviled her husband. Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless, like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own. N IS FOR NOOSE: A novel in which Kinsey Milhone becomes the target and an entire town seems in for the kill.'

I have read ALL the Grafton series (even the newest'U') and I love them all. She is a great writer, her stories and characters are very well written. After a few of these, you really get hooked on the characters: Kinsey/Henry and his siblings.Maybe it's the 'tomboy' in me growning up, but I see a lot of myself in her.---Loved them all!
