Terrible book. Tedious. Though I've been a fan and read all the "alphabet" novels, I couldn't finish this one. I can only hope Z is better.
Sue Grafton has never written a formula book. I was totally taken by surprise at the two resolutions to the two plot lines. Henry, the landlord, has a kind heart, which once again pays off for Kinsey and for several other people as well. The reality of the drudgery of security measures was just so true to life--setting alarms, locking and unlocking after checking out who's at the door, wondering which situations merit carrying a gun, working out to keep strong, and the women's BAM defense class.
Another entertaining romp around Santa Teresa/Barbara - now into the late 1980s. Favourite new character - Killer the Dog and his dolly.
I loved the book. How does she continue to come up with these unique plots?
Y indeed. I've read from A-Y now and probably will tackle Z. It can't be as bad as Y.
Sue Grafton's books are always good and have interesting stories to tell (2 plot lines in this one), and really interesting characters. She is not afraid to call out individual personality quirks and does so in this book as well. I thought the ending was a bit abrupt and some key elements only came together in the Epilogue. Otherwise a great read. Enjoy.
Very good book - two stories developed side by side. Both of them kept you guessing and sitting on the edge of your seat. Looking forward to Z but not to the end of this delightful series. Hoping that Kinsey has a great ending in the last book. ( Although she will pick up the series and start using numbers......
Excellent story, one of her best
A mother asks Kinsey’s help when her family appears the target of an extortionist due to her son’s participation in teen mischief gone wrong ten years before. This sorry band of teenagers and parents would seem a bit grim without the humor of Kinsey’s neighborhood friends and acquaintances or the psychopath Ned who appeared in an earlier book who comes back with vengeance Great read. Kept me guessing.
Loved the book, can't wait for Z.
