    A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A dying old man cared for by the son he pummeled mercilessly. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring racking up millions in stolen goods. A brutal and unscrupulous gangster. A wandering husband, rich and powerful. A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt thinking he can beat the system. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers that may be worse than the pain of his loss.

    Story

    Every other major novelist with a single protagonist seems to sort of peter out after 10 or 12 books, apparently losing their edge, running out of plot lines, or having said everything they had to say. But not Sue Grafton. Every book is great -- some I like a little bit better than others, for personal reasons, but every book is compelling and hard to put down. I'm crushed to recall there are only four to go -- but the good news is, I've aged even if Kinsey hasn't. I've already reread several of them, and they're just like new. (Pretty soon I'll need only one book.)

    One thing about this particular tale made me giggle: Friends in the Santa Barbara/Montecito area note that Sue Grafton herself is quite a fixture in local high society. Very active and well respected. So as she was describing some of the wealthy female denizens of the "Santa Theresa" xray women, the ladies-who-lunch bunch, she was most probably describing a good many of the women in her own social circle. Made me laugh, wondering if they'd recognize themselves....

    Whatever. It's a great book, wonderful fun and now probably a long wait until "W" appears.
