When Wendell Jaffe, mastermind of a real-estate scam, disappeared at sea, no body was found. Now, five years later, he's declared legally dead, and California Fidelity has to pay up on his life insurance policy, to the tune of half-a-million dollars. Soon after, the tune slides off-key when Jaffe is spotted in Mexico and Fidelity hires Kinsey Millhone to sort things out. Oddly enough, Kinsey's investigation of the con man's past triggers a surprising inquiry into her own family history. And, as the two stories intertwine, our favorite P.I. finds herself facing dangerous consequences.
Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

Absolutely, Mary Peiffer makes the book come alive!
None comes to mind
I love Kinsey Millhone, Mary Peiffer is fabulous!
No extreme reaction to the book, when Kinsey gets herself in "trouble" I can't wait to see how she gets herself out of it. Although I don't like it when she gets hurt!
Can't wait to listen to the next one. I'm going to look for other books narrated by Mary Peiffer.

I like this series. Always interesting and never a let-down.
I also like her slightly sarcastic style - makes me smile.
This is definately a womans book written by a woman. I eventually gave up after giving the book a good chance. It read like a womans owns magazine with the frills and make up described in great detail. Perhaps my wife might enjoy it but I doubt it, she is far oo intelligent for this type of hype. I wont get another of her books despite the wonderful recommendations of some listeners
