Publisher's Summary

Once again, Kinsey Millhone, America's favorite female P.I., embroils herself in a complex and entertaining Alphabet Murder Mystery.

When Wendell Jaffe, mastermind of a real-estate scam, disappeared at sea, no body was found. Now, five years later, he's declared legally dead, and California Fidelity has to pay up on his life insurance policy, to the tune of half-a-million dollars. Soon after, the tune slides off-key when Jaffe is spotted in Mexico and Fidelity hires Kinsey Millhone to sort things out. Oddly enough, Kinsey's investigation of the con man's past triggers a surprising inquiry into her own family history. And, as the two stories intertwine, our favorite P.I. finds herself facing dangerous consequences.

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

    "I don't know what they were thinking..."
    Would you try another book from Sue Grafton and/or Mary Peiffer?

    Never Mary Peiffer!!!!!! She totally put me to sleep.


    What could Sue Grafton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Please don't have Mary Peiffer perform any more of Sue Grafton's books. Judy Kaye is the only Kinsey I want to hear. Had I realized that it wasn't her performing this audio book, I would not have purchased it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mary Peiffer’s performances?

    I have no desire to try any of her performances. I know that may sound harsh because it's the first time I've experienced her performance, but it just turned me off.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I honestly don't know. I only made it through the first 2 chapters, and with great difficulty. I couldn't tolerate Mary Peiffer's character-less (don't think that's really a word) voice. That doesn't happen very often, and it's never happened to me with ANY of Sue Grafton's books until this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Judy Kaye is the only performer that I think brings this series to life. I can tell you honestly, that I will not purchase any other audio books of this series unless she is the one performing.

    "Love Sue Grafton Books!"
    Would you listen to J Is for Judgment again? Why?

    Absolutely, Mary Peiffer makes the book come alive!


    What other book might you compare J Is for Judgment to and why?

    None comes to mind


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

    I love Kinsey Millhone, Mary Peiffer is fabulous!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction to the book, when Kinsey gets herself in "trouble" I can't wait to see how she gets herself out of it. Although I don't like it when she gets hurt!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to the next one. I'm going to look for other books narrated by Mary Peiffer.

    "Reliable"

    I like this series. Always interesting and never a let-down.

    I also like her slightly sarcastic style - makes me smile.

    "womans world"

    This is definately a womans book written by a woman. I eventually gave up after giving the book a good chance. It read like a womans owns magazine with the frills and make up described in great detail. Perhaps my wife might enjoy it but I doubt it, she is far oo intelligent for this type of hype. I wont get another of her books despite the wonderful recommendations of some listeners
