    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    What disappointed you about W Is for Wasted?

    Let me say first that I have always loved Sue Grafton's books and can even name all the "alphabet" titles from memory. That being said, I feel this one was WAAAY to long and filled with narrative that was uninteresting and tedious. This book could have been at least 5 hours less (maybe more) and have been more palatable. I had to go to other books after every couple of hours just to take a break from the boredom and finally get it finished.


    What was most disappointing about Sue Grafton’s story?

    The painful fact that in this book Kinsey is reduced to a mere shadow of herself. She is whiney and spineless, unlike the sassy "in your face" detective we have seen in the past.


    What about Judy Kaye’s performance did you like?

    Judy always does a great job. She IS Kinsey.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was interesting to have the "old" boyfriends all in the picture again.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe 2 years is a little long for Sue to take to write these novels. She appears to be overthinking.
