T Is for Trespass, dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependent, targets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric. Garfton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying.

"Grafton's mastery of dialogue and her portrayal of the limits of good intentions make this one of the series' high points." (Publishers Weekly)
I have read all of her books and this one was awful. Not scary, not interestingly, kinsey was remarkably stupid. The extra annoying part was all of the anti working mother comments from all the characters. Skip it and buy "Restless"
Say something about yourself!
Judy Kaye is such a wonderful reader, she can even make "I-who-hates-McDonald's" crave a "QP with cheese" LOL. This is a very clever story and it is nice that Grafton gives enough hints to make it fun to figure out what will happen next, without making it too easy (and consequently boring). I'm 2/3 through and already wishing the book was longer!
I've read or listened to most of the series but this was the best. I literally found ways to listen to it because it truly held my interest all the time!
"Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas,..."
So says the Publisher's summary. Unfortunately, the narrator either didn't read that or just can't make it happen. I have read every one of Sue Grafton's book and love Kinsey Milhone, but I cannot keep up with which character is speaking because almost all the voices are identical, particularly the women's voices.
I think the book may be really good. I am only in about the 4th chapter, but the narration problem has me so irritated, I dread returning to listen to more of the anonymous characters and trying to sort out who is saying what to whom.
I have followed the travels of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone since "A is for Alibi,' and I must admit that although I read them each time they are released, the last few years' volumes haven't entertained as much as some of the prior books. "T is for Trespass" was a great improvement. I enjoyed it because while continuing to depict Kinsey as the independent loner, she also interacted and was included in her community. I felt like I got a much better insight into her character as a result. The book was again read by Judy Kaye, who has done so throughout the series. In my opinion, Ms. Kaye's performances enhance the continuity and familiarity of the series. To me, her voice is the only voice Kinsey will ever have. After listening to "T," I look forward to hearing "U" with excitement, instead of by habit.
