Publisher's Summary

Kinsey Millhone's latest client is Malek Construction, a $40 million company still in family hands. It doesn't take an accountant to see that the four Malek brothers stand to inherit a fortune. But one of the brothers has been missing for 18 years, and Kinsey's assignment is to find him.

The stock of family memories is filled with nothing but bitterness, and the prodigal son will find no comfort at the Malek table. If there's one thing that goes hand-in-hand with bad blood, it's murder; and that's just around the corner.

Very good book

really didn't notice the difference between the narrators, both Kay and Peiffer catch the essense of Graftons writing and bring it to life.

made a long trip shorter.

Loved this one

My favorite of all the books. Interesting, intricate, rich plot and kept me guessing until the very end. Great insight into Kinsey's personal life as well. All around great story.

Great

I loved it, it kept the suspense to almost the end, even though I guessed who was guilty. I do wish she had talked about how they settled the other crime involving the documents

A bit too much anger

Overall it was a good story. I thought it was too much anger that she expressed. It definitely got better as the story progressed.

Enjoyable stories.

I will only buy the Kinsey novels that are read by Mary Peiffer as her performance is much easier to listen to and the characters are easily recognizable. The male voices sound like men not adolescents. And the female characters are easily differentiated. When Ms. Peiffer is speaking as Kinsey she sounds about the right age and social-level as Kinsey is meant to be.

I much prefer this narrator to Judy Kaye. I find Judy Kaye sounds far too old to be in her thirties and the male voices are painful to listen to, like some good ole boy that's over 80 years and squeeky with it.

Kensey's spunky attitude angry candy humor keeps me listening right through to them end. I enjoyed it immensely.

Sad but good

Kinsey sets out on a missing person case with an 18 year history and some ghostly overtones.

M is for Malice is one of the best of the series
