    Through 14 books, listeners have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past. This time, Grafton feeds you an entire feast, including the juice about Kinsey's first husband!

    Overall

    The book is what you have come to expect with the ABC murders.

    This is my first time with Judy Kaye reading the series. I am not sure I agree with her as a choice. While her characterizations are fine in general, she make Kinsey sound 50 years old and Henry sound feable.

    My major gripe with this audio is the quality of the recording. The narrators pitch and voice level changed while "playing" Kinsey so much I thought there were multiple people narrating. I don't blame her, but the people who recorded the book. BAD WORK. I have grown accustom to practically unnoticed splices. I might notice a splice once or twice in a book. I noticed the splicing at least 4 or 5 times in each chapter.

    This book is in a desparate need of re-recording. If this had been my first book with audible, I would probably not buy again. But there is always a bad apple in the bunch. I guess this was just one of them. Lets hope "P" is better.

    Join Kinsey Millhone on her latest venture into the darker side of the human soul, searching for a missing doctor who is loved by all...or is he?

    Inga Duncan says: "Unabridged all the way!"
    "Much better quality."
    Overall

    I am glad to see the quality of this recording was a great improvement over O is for outlaw. I only noticed one major slicing issue, but hey I get that from my Jim Dale recordings every now and then too.

    I would like to point out to those that continue to state that it is abhorable that Kinsey has no cell phone or computer. Remember, this the early to mid 1980s. Mobile phones (no such thing as a cell) are huge and bulky and few people have them. In addition, they are expensive. Something our frugal Ms. Milhone would never consider. Ditto for computers. I don't see her spending $2000 - $5000 for a personal computer, when her Smith Corona does just fine.
