The darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone, Y begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a 14-year-old classmate - and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing, and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns state's evidence, and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace.

With only one letter left in this alphabet, I am hoping she can move on to heiroglyph ics or Chinese symbols for inspiration!

Ugh. I think that this is the first book I have ever returned. With the exchange rate on the Canadian dollar at such a ridiculous level, I spend my credits carefully. I cared not at all for any of the characters, nor for the plot, and could hardly believe this was written by Grisham. If I hadn't been listening to it while painting my back deck I would have returned it sooner. Alas, I was covered in paint. Boring. The narrator was okay, did well with accents and tried to make the story interesting but had little to work with.
