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.
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.
Judy always does a great job. She IS Kinsey.
It was interesting to have the "old" boyfriends all in the picture again.
Maybe 2 years is a little long for Sue to take to write these novels. She appears to be overthinking.
