Publisher's Summary

The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. The weekend before, he'd bought a stack of cardboard boxes. In one, there was a collection of childhood memorabilia with Kinsey's name all over it.

Though she's never been one for personal possessions, curiosity is a powerful force. What she finds among the items is an old undelivered letter to her that will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of her first marriage...about the honor of her first husband...and about an old unsolved murder. It will put her life in the gravest peril.

Through 14 books, listeners have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past: a morsel here, a dollop there. You know about the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one has remained a blip on the screen. Until now. "O" Is for Outlaw is a revealing excursion into Kinsey's past.

    "Some Kinsey history"

    I've read most of Kinsey's stories (books) and this is my first audio recording. As for the recording, the reader does an excellent job of capturing the tone of the written word and Kinsey's sarcastic wit.

    The story focuses on her search for the perpetrator who shot and seriously wounded her first husband. We are allowed a glimpse of Kinsey's life we've never been privy to and I think it offers a deeper vision of where she's come from, emotionally. Still, it's mostly about coming along for a ride with a fiesty loner...someone with whom I wouldn't mind sharing a drink. :)

    The joy of her stories (for me) isn't anything remarkable in the plot, but feeling a part of her life. Her writing is escapism and light reading soley for the moment's enjoyment. Let others criticize...I like the series and I'll keep up until the alphabet runs dry.

    "O is for Outlaw"

    This is the first book I have heard that was written by Grafton. The plot was good and kept me interested; however, I was bored to tears by the endless detailed minutia describing rooms, environments, locations, etc. These mindless details only served to increase the number of words in the book and bore the reader (listener) but I am sure it gave the author a bit more money from the publisher. I enjoyed the story line and liked the characters and plot - but was continually frustrated by the uneeded details always wanting to get on with the story

    "Love, love Kinsey"

    The narrator makess a great book even better. She has done them alll so far so it would be weird to hear someone else. When I read the alphabet books I hear Judy's voice in my head.

    "This one brought tears to my eyes"

    This book may be one of my favorites in the alphabet series. It gives us a glimpse into Kinsey's first marriage.

    Story
    "What happened to Mary Peiffer?"

    I absolutely do not like Judy Kaye. Her voice for Henry sounds like a whispering leprechaun. I really wish there was a way to get someone else to read the rest of this series.

    I might have to find something else to listen to because it is horrible to listen to even though I love Sue Grafton and this series.

    "Unabridged? Nope -epilogue was mangled"

    Throughly the book there were minor changes by Judy Kaye as she was reading, which would not be a big deal except the fact that he ENTIRE second paragraph of the Epilogue was missing.

    I buy unabridged because I want to read what the author wrote... In this case the information was important into the insight of Kinsey

    "Wonderful story, with a couple of little issues"

    I really enjoyed both the story and the reading. It must be said that a couple of things happen in the final few minutes that are a bit odd (a non-spoiling one being Kinsey, without apparent reason, driving past four cops and about two sentences later bemoaning that there are no police on the road from whom she can seek protection). I didn't like the twee introduction of emotive background music for the epilogue - Sue Grafton's writing manages just fine on its own, thanks!

    "Liked it, but didn't love it."

    Definitely not my favorite in the series. There were a lot of characters going on and it got a little confusing. Plus, the narrator has changed, so that took some adjusting.

    "Mot the n'est narrator."

    I didn't like the new narrator. It was like a 30's serials. The worst was Henry's old Man voice. But the story was good...
