Publisher's Summary

Bobby Callahan was only 20 when an accident left him disfigured for life. The doctors patched up his body but they couldn't fix his mind.

Huge chunks of his memory were lost but he knew someone had tried to kill him and that the "accident" was deliberate. He knew he had the key to something that made him dangerous to the murderer but he didn't know what. No one believed him...so he hired Kinsey Millhone.

Three days later Bobby was dead. But Kinsey never welched on a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing, now she'd find the killer instead.

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

©1986 Sue Grafton; (P)1993 Books on Tape

What the Critics Say

"Millhone's feisty, stubborn, resourceful, guardedly romantic, and willfully practical...our kind of loner." (Detroit News)

    "Perfect escapist listening"

    I like Sue Grafton because her books are interesting but you don't have to think too hard to follow the story. Each book stands alone, but they're better in alphabet order because the main character, Kinsey Milhone, develops over time.

    Story
    "Very Good Read and Reader!"
    What did you love best about C is for Corpse?

    I really enjoyed the plot of this one. It was somewhat predictable, but still very griping I very much want to listen to the other books in this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought that the story was very fluid and believable which I find refreshing. Many of the books I listen to are not this easy to get involved in. I really wanted to know what was going to happen next.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Peiffer – was your favorite?

    Kinsey is hands down my favorite. She has the perfect voice to go with the character. I can't imagine a better reader for this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time I would have listened to it from start to finish.

    Always Kensey


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The friend with all the cats that worked at the roller-ring with the black book

    I never was like other kids but learned to search house to find thing instead of kid games

    "Intreging, great storyline and hard to put up"
    What did you love best about C is for Corpse?

    Kinsey tells it like it is, you can relate to her


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Sue has a talent about her to keep you listening or reading her books to find out the conclusion
    ]


    Which character – as performed by Mary Peiffer – was your favorite?

    I still enjoy Kinsey the best


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Kinsey can be very forthcoming in a very interesting way


    Any additional comments?

    You will want to listen to all her books once you listen to or read the first one

    Story
    "R is for Robotic..."

    I've listened to the first three books now and Mary Peiffer's narration is the one down side of the book. There are pauses in the narration for no reason and at times she sounds like the robot voice on answering machines or voice prompts when you call a company. Emotionless and precise is the best way to describe it. Luckily, the story is engaging enough to get past the narration.

    Story
    "I Love Kinsey!"

    I have listened to books A-P so far. I've enjoyed all of them but this one is one my favorites. This narrator is also, in my mind, Kinsey. Judy Kaye also narrates this series - but I could never get used to her voice. I highly recommend this series!
