I always eagerly await the next Grafton, but I feel like she is getting tired of writing them. This one lacks the excitment of the earlier ones. I hope T is better. This one centers around a little girl whose vivacious (read slutty) mother goes missing. Everyone assumes she has run off with a man. Now the girl is grown and she wants Kinsey to find her mother. Foul play is a given, since it wouldn't be much of a murder mystery otherwise. Disappointing.

Grafton's P.I. Kinsey Millhone has been asked to investigate a cold case involving the disappearance 34 years ago of a "live-wire" young woman, living in a small town with an abusive husband. Her grown-up daughter can't believe her mother would have left her behind, or that in all these years, if she were alive, she wouldn't have contacted her daughter. Kinsey finds that trying to investigate a cold case in a small town, where no one wants to give her a straight answer, is tough. But Kinsey is tough too. A great fast-paced read.

Kinsey Millhone is asked to investigate the 34 year old disappearance of a young woman's mother. It was hard for me to even guess what had happened to her, there were so many possibilities and suspects. Grafton's character continues to be real and exciting.

Cases don't get much colder than that of Violet Sullivan, who disappeared from her rural California town in 1953, leaving behind an abusive husband and a seven-year old named Daisy. But PI Kinsey Millhone has promised Daisy she'll try her best to locate Violet, dead or alive. All signs point to a runaway wife--the clothes that disappeared; the secret stash of money Violet bragged about; the brazen flirtations she indulged in with local men, including some married ones. Kinsey tries to pick up a trail by speaking to those who remember Violet--and perhaps were more involved in her life than they let on. But the trail could lead her somewhere very dangerous. Because the case may have gone cold, but some people's feelings about Violet Sulivan still run as hot as ever..

This book did not let up. Just when you think you know what happens, the story twists and turns down another road. Excellent read!

I have read many of Kinsey Hillhone's books, but this was a disappointment. It really didn't hold my attention, therefore, a disappointment.
