It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: baby-sit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the rules of her parole. Maybe all of a week's work. Nothing untoward, the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good. But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than 24 hours when one of her old crowd comes circling around.
Readers have come to expect the unexpected from Sue Grafton, and R is for Ricochet is no exception. In it, a complex and clever money-laundering scheme is just a cover for a novel that is all about love: love gone wrong, love betrayed, love denied. And love avenged. For Reba Lafferty, its moral is clear: Sometimes what you hand out in life comes back to bite you in the ass. Sometimes the good guys win, even when they lose.

"Sexy adventure....Grafton as usual creates believable and enduring characters and a strong sense of place in her town of Santa Teresa circa 1987." (Publishers Weekly)
It was entertaining while driving.
V is for vengeance.
It was to Austin and back.
This is the kind of book that is interesting and entertaining when you are on a drive. No deep inner meaning or guide to the meaning of life, but a good distraction while driving. It's a good story and keeps your attention while the miles pass. I had 30 minutes left when I got home and made time to finish the book that day.
Judy Kaye does a great job of reading this story. Her voice, and inflections, as with the other Sue Grafton books make them a joy to listen to. This book follows in the tradition of Grafton?s other ?alphabet books?, they are fun, entertaining and a good balance of adventure and a continuing soap opera of Kinsey?s life. I enjoy listening to these as I drive to eat up the miles. This book is a bit more sexual than I remember the others and there are a few moments that if you have little kids in the car, that might not be appropriate. Overall a good choice to purchase.
