T Is for Trespass: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery | [Sue Grafton]

T Is for Trespass: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs.

Publisher's Summary

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs. The true horror of the novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene.

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.

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

    "kellysmom"

    Grafton missed the literary ship on this novel. It was boring with static, uninteresting characters. The plot plodded along without twists and turns to engage the reader.

    "'T' is for tedious"

    I enjoyed the animated narration, but the storyline is lacking, drawn out and predictable.

    "Not much of a thriller!"

    I really like Sue Grafton novels and couldn't wait for this one to come out. "T" kept my interest,but but never kept me sitting in my car in the garage waiting to hear what was going to happen next. Grafton added a little social commintary in this one, actually well done. Not Grafton's best, but not the worst. 6 out of 10

    "Simon gives it thumbs down:-("

    Honestly, all I seem to notice in the mysteries I'm listening to lately is how they all seem to have gone into print without being edited! The amount of unnecessary detail in this book triples it's length - at least. I could care less which street she is on in this imaginary town and where she is turning right, parking near the pet shop, and pocketing her keys.

    In a good mystery, the inclusion of little details are CLUES!! So you go past them blithely at your peril. But Grafton has never learned this lesson. Yes, her first few books were good (and much shorter), but this 26-book contract has been a big dissapointment.

    I finished it because the plot is interesting (as always), but it's a slog, folks.

    "T is for Tiresome"

    This narration was way too long considering the limited amount of content. The protagonist's personality as demonstrated in this book is not particularly interesting. The mysteries to be solved are not earth shattering in nature. Many of the plot twists were predictable chapters ahead.

    There are many better books to listen to than this one. S is for Silence, written by this author, is one of them.

    Judy Kay is a wonderful narrator.

    "T for Trespass"

    Really enjoyed it, felt a bit slow getting started but in retrospect it meant that the characters were well developed. It was well worth sticking with it as the second half was fast moving and full of "action". A thriller with a bit of a difference.

    "Exciting and very well read"

    A Kinsey Millhone adventure which also shows the other side: we not only listen to the voice of Kinsey, but also to that of a sociopath Kinsey will get to meet. It makes the book extra fascinating. In my opinion, one of the better books in the series, with a very good build up to the tension, with multiple climaxes.

    An extra dimension is added to the book by the narrator: Judy Kaye. With minimal means, Judy is able to give the characters their own, characteristic voice: Henry, with a slightly crackling voice, Tiny, with a dumb, nasal sound. Very well done, without it becoming at any point irritating or overdone. Instead, it makes the book better to understand, since Sue Grafton writes a lot of dialogues as only dialogues, without any comment indicating who says what. I remember from reading earlier books, I was sometimes puzzled as to which character was saying a line. With the way Judy reads it, there can be no doubt. Add to this the fact that when the tension rises in the book, her reading speeds up as well: she makes a great narrator!

    "This one made my heart race!"
    What made the experience of listening to T Is for Trespass the most enjoyable?

    Sue Grafton does it AGAIN! Couldn't tear myself away from this one....had my heart pounding as if I were there with Kinsey! Great listening. Thank you Judy Kane!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of T Is for Trespass?

    When Kinsey and Patty were in Gus's house trying to get him out! Yikes!


    What about Judy Kaye’s performance did you like?

    She is THE voice for Kinsey.

    "Creepy and convincing"

    A fabulous Kinsey Millhone story. How did they know that the narrator's voice was the voice I've had in my head all these years when I've read the other books in the series? After a slightly disappointing couple of books which didn't really engage my imagination, Sue Grafton is back on top form - and better. This book had a depth that I haven't found in her others. And it was all so plausible - easy to see how a determined crook could worm their way into an older person's house ....

    Throughly recommended.

    "Lightweight rubbish"

    Typical American tripe. If you like easy reading with an occasional laugh this fits the bill but I can't see me reading another in the series especially as there is a whole alphabet of them. As this is book 20 it's obviously a popular series but definitely not for me I'm afraid and wouldn't recommend it

    "T is for Trespass"

    I enjoy reading the alphabet murder mysteries by Sue Grafton; her PI Kinsey Millhone is a fantastic spiky character - almost antisocial in some ways. This book was quite a departure from the other books in the series, you certainly cannot empathise with the main character who is amoral and completeley evil, she has no redeeming features at all. I listened avidly to find out how the story would play out. I enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend it. A gripping listen!

    "Audible hopes..............."

    I was very disappointed to hear the words 'Audible hopes you enjoyed this programme' because it meant I'd come to the end of a really good story, read by a brilliant storyteller.
