Publisher's Summary

A wealthy woman needs to find her sister to settle a will. It looks routine...boring. Still, business is slow and even a private investigator has bills to pay, so Kinsey Millhone takes the case.

But this is not routine and the deeper Kinsey digs the trickier things get. The client tries to call Kinsey off, an accusing husband surfaces, and a double murder turns the case sinister. Kinsey feels adrift in a fog of distortion, where nothing, except danger, is quite what it seems.

Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

©1985 Sue Grafton; (P)1993 Books on Tape

What the Critics Say

"Unconventional, unsentimental, Millhone's a fine addition to the ranks of fictional private eyes." (The Houston Chronicle)

    "Back again for B is for Burglar"

    I actually had not heard this since it was first out on Books on Tape a looooong time ago and wanted to hear it again! To me it was actually fun to hear the old Books on Tape stuff at the very start of the book.
    Although still a good story the second time through, I can really see (hear) why so many reviewers were not very happy with the early books just because of the reader Ms. Peiffer.
    Although she reads the story fine, as with several other readers of various books, she just doesn't seem to have the correct or expected 'tonal quality' for the character in this story, in my opinion!!!
    If you're just discovering the "Alphabet" series, I'd still recommend giving it a listen, or, especially in the early stages of this series, get the abridged version and hear the reader that now has become the ONLY reader of the series for the most part, abridged or unabridged, Judy Kaye!
    She IS Kinsey Millhone!

    "I Did Finish It"

    I did finish this book, even after reading "A is for Alibi." But I won't get any of the others by this author. After reading David Baldacci's books, this is just too simple. The Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt are lighter than Baldacci and much preferred over this author. But this is just my unsolicited opinion...

    "Never a waste!"

    Anything by Sue Grafton is worth the credits or cash! Kinsey Milhone has got to be one of my all time favorite recurring characters in fiction. Thanks Sue!

    "great story"

    the story is great. Keeps you guessing. Lots of twists and turns. The narrator is OK. Much better than the narrator used for her first novel alibi.

    "Not as strong as Number one but still a winner"
    Would you consider the audio edition of B is for Burglar to be better than the print version?

    Audio books are a great time saver.


    What other book might you compare B is for Burglar to and why?

    All of the "ABC" Grafton books are about the same story line. I love the crazy cast of characters!

    Story
    "Early Kinsey Milhone"

    I have trouble hearing the female reader. But this is due to hearing loss on my part. My frequency Loss is in the range of female and childern's voice pitch. I have hearing aids - but that does not make it better enough to compinsate. In my case, a male reader would be easier to understand. But I completely understand why a storm written by a woman about a woman would be read by a woman. A slitely slower pace would make it easier also. Otherwise a typical Sue Grafton Novel. Would recommend to others.

    "Another interesting twist for Kinsey"

    I liked this better the further I listened. It took a bit to catch me up in the mystery. Overall the ending was good and surprising.
