Kinsey has become an old friend and continues on her way with another submission that is better than the last. Sue Grafton continues to weave the history of Kinsey and friends which is getting pretty difficult while telling a different mystery in each book. Does anyone else catch the 1 to 3 unusual word choices that are in every book? She must do some real digging to come up with them.
My only regret is that we are getting close to "Z" and I don't think there will be an "AA". I have been re-reading her earlier works and they are just as much fun each time I read them. Sue Grafton is the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of our times.
I have read several other reviews and completely agree with the 5 star people. I wasn't paying too much attention to where the story was going when I first started reading it with my ears. It certainly grabs you and won't let go until the end and then you have to pry each finger away, one at a time, with difficulty. I never cry when I read, but I did. What is there to fear in a book? Nothing except I ask myself when will it by my turn? It is captivating, riveting, biblical, and almost real.
I found the book has a good plot, excellent character descriptions, with some nice twists. The ending was predictable because of how many threads had to be collected and very little space left to do it. Sort of like a TV script. Probably the best part is the timing of the various plot twists. There is a little suspension of belief in some areas, just enough to make the story plausable. I certainly will purchase his next work and recommend this book for any mystery fan.
