Sue Grafton started this series back in 1982, yet I think her later books are better than the earlier ones. This story cleverly combines two storylines in a very plausible manner without being too confusing! Any Kinsey Milhone fan will certainly be delighted.
I have enjoyed many of tge books in this Alphabet Series. However, by the time I was one-third into W is for Wasted, I was thoroughly disenchanted. The plot just would not pick up. Instead, there was endless dwelling on bloodless sub-plots, often repeated time and again over the previous books in the series. There was an equally endless parade of details, aiming to be found 'cute'- which could not hide the fact that the plot was stuck. Unlikely characters, a wonky storyline, sentimentality- the book has it all. And to top it off, the wooden, scratchy performance of Judy Kaye. Ugh! A true disaster.
The Sue and Judy combo is once again a match made in heaven! For me this one was a bit of a slow burn but it pays off in the end. Another solid outing. Only three more books left.
As usual, Judy Kaye did excellent as the narrator! The storyline starts slow, but once it gets going, you're hooked. The ending was really great and the story introduced a lot of new characters.
I love reading but have found that listening to the books is great when I am to busy to read. I love animals and try to keep busy with friends and family.
This story draws you in and you keep wanting more.
Cannot wait for the next book.
Sue Grafton did it again! I hate that we're getting so close to Z! The reader was amazing! So many characters! I was able to visualize each one in detail!
I am a true fan of Kinsey Millhone and enjoyed this story completely. With only three letters of the alphabet left I'm going to be lost when they're done. Now on to X.
