What the Critics Say

"The eighth in Grafton's best-selling series is perhaps the wildest ride yet....Grafton's skill with dialogue, her vivid characterizations and California scenery are priceless....There are moments when the tension becomes so unbearable that you are tempted to skip paragraphs out of self-preservation." (USA Today)
"One of the best....A vivid, funny portrait of life in an ethnic underworld, viewed without judgment. Suspense there is, plentifully, and a final suggestion that Kinsey will be exploring different mischiefs next time. Outstanding." (Los Angeles Times)

    "Abrupt Ending!"

    This book ends so fast that it truly lacks finality. You're listening along and within seconds the whole thing is wrapped up and the listener is left feeling rather empty. You don't really sympathize with any of the characters, especially Kinsey. Also, the sound editing is so choppy that it's hard to pay attention to the dialog. Not Grafton's best.

    "Not much mystery"

    This is more of a thriller than a mystery. There's a bit of a surprise at the end, but not much. Everyone knows who-dun-it about a quarter of the way in. Even the action to catch the guy is just stuff that happens, rather than a plan. I enjoyed it some, but not as much as others in this series.

    "I liked the story but it had a little canned feel"

    There was a bit of TV format to the book. It was a good storyline and was performed well. The undercover work had more substance than usual. All in all not a waste of time.

    "Sue Grafton can do no wrong!"

    This is it now, I am all caught up with the series - obviously all read out of order since this is “H” and the series is up to “W”.

    I adore the Kinsey Milhone character so much; I am going to miss not having her around on a regular basis! I’m going from 23 instalments in 6 years, to a new instalment every 2 years.

    Will be sad to reach the end.
