N is for Noose: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery | [Sue Grafton]

N is for Noose: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

When Tom Newquist, a tough, honest, and respected detective in the Nola Lake sheriff's office died suddenly, the townsfolk were not surprised: Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign.

Publisher's Summary

When Tom Newquist, a tough, honest, and respected detective in the Nola Lake sheriff's office died suddenly, the townsfolk were not surprised: Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign.

Newquist's widow didn't doubt the coroner's report. But Selma couldn't accept not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life, and the only way she'd get closure was if she found out what it was that had made him prowl restlessly at night, that had him brooding constantly.

Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless, like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead, she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own.

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

    "Quite good until the very end"

    yes, we all know she has to write 26 books and some have been disappointing, but this one was really one of her much better efforts -- you don't know what's going on until almost the end (even tho you might suspect), but she blows it with a really limp ending in the last paragraph or 2. Oh well...................... still worth a listen.

    "N is for Noose"

    I have listened to all of Sue Grafton's books to date. As usual I can't wait for the new one to come out. They just get better and better!!

    Story
    "Brief and adequate"
    Would you listen to N is for Noose again? Why?

    Full disclosure: I have read this one twice already. I might well read it again once enough time has passed and I have forgotten how mild and uncompelling this one is. It's not terrible.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sue Grafton before, how does this one compare?

    Definitely the bottom half of the group, but not the very worst.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In this one, I would have to say Kinsey's early scenes with Deets.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If this is your first try at reading Sue Grafton and you didn't love it, I would encourage you to try something else of her's. She has written many books that I have really loved.

    "Murder Mystery"
    What made the experience of listening to N is for Noose the most enjoyable?

    I like the Kinsey Milhone Mysteries


    What did you like best about this story?

    Author is pretty consistant


    Have you listened to any of Mary Peiffer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I prefer Judy Kaye - Mary is not the right fit for me.


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

    Good story

    "Not her best work"

    Typical Sue Grafton. However, there are some pretty tenuous threads in this story. It's OK, but I would consider this one of her weaker efforts.
