In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.
But for the not-quite-seven-year-old daughter Daisy she left behind, Violet's absence has never been explained or forgotten.
Now, 34 years later, she wants the solace of closure.

"This novel...presents strong character portrayals, a mosaic of motives, and a stunning climax" (Booklist)
I just recently found this series and started listening to them. I would finished one then start on the next on in the series right away! I have no idea what I am going to do when I get to "Z", but this book is in my Top 5.
I hope everyone else enjoy's these books as much as me!!!
I have been listening to the abridged versions narrated by Judy Kaye for years. Now that they are being offered by Audible with Judy Kaye in unabridged format, it brings so much more to the story. I may even go back and get A-R in unabridged.
Someone who doesn't care if murder mysteries make any sense at all
Probably not. I really dislike the way Judy Kaye hesitates between every 2-3 words for no apparent reason. The way she reads is really irritating. Add that to the fact that this book was unbelievably stupid and made no sense at all, and this is a huge disappointment.
Not at all. I dislike intensely the way she reads and baseless hesitations.
all of them
don't waste your money!!
This was a good Sue Grafton book. I've read all but 1 of them over the years, and found this one to be particularly satisfying. It's what you'd expect from a good Grafton novel, with a little extra thrown in, in my view. I thought the characters were particularly well formed in this book, and enjoyed the relationships that Kinsey formed with the women involved in this small-town mystery.
I've read most of Sue Grafton's books and enjoyed most of what I read, but if I had read this one first, I wouldn't have been drawn to read others. The characters are flat and the narrator makes them all sound disgusted. This book wouldn't have been a good read regardless of who narrated it, but in this case, the narrator made a bad book worse. I'll avoid any others she narrates. And I think I'll give up on Sue Grafton.
