    In 1982, Sue Grafton introduced us to Kinsey Millhone. Thirty years later, Kinsey is an established international icon and Sue, a number-one best-selling author. To mark this anniversary year, Sue has given us stories that reveal Kinsey’s origins and Sue’s past. Kinsey and Me has two parts: The nine Kinsey stories (1986-93), each a gem of detection; and the And Me stories, written in the decade after Grafton's mother died. Together, they show just how much of Kinsey is a distillation of her creator’s past.

    Overall I was pleasantly surprized by this book. I always wondered what Kinsey did between her longer tales, and now it feels like we have been given a glimpse into those corners of her life.Normally I can guess who the wrong-doer is in most mystery fiction and so was pleased that there were a few twists that I was surprized by.

    On the "Me" side of the book, I'll admit I wasn't as interested and stopped listening. I will probably go back to these stories in the future, but I found the dramatic change in tone a bit jarring after the Kinsey stories.

    ONE BIG COMPLAINT: the story called "Full Circle" isn't complete. The audio cuts off and moves on to the next chapter/story. I double checked it against a print copy of the book and sure enough there is more to the story. I have tried to delete and download several times with no change. Hopefully this will be corrected for future listeners.
