Publisher's Summary

Kinsey Millhone, P.I. is a 32-year-old, twice-divorced ex-cop with an irreverent, wise-cracking style reminiscent of Philip Marlowe, and a great pair of legs, who piles her trade in the small Southern Californian town of Santa Theresa.

Make no mistake about it, Kinsey Millhone is one tough cookie. When a routine insurance claim she's investigating turns into non-routine trouble, someone has put $5,000 in her usually not-too-flush checking account and made it look like she's on the take, Kinsey sets out to discover who has set her up and why.

The trail of evidence leads to the wealthy Wood family, which includes the three quirky sisters Olive, Ash, and Ebony. But she's not counting on the involvement of her long-departed ex-husband #2, who's gorgeous, seductive, and also a junkie. And she's certainly not counting on murder.

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

The narrator is very good, the book ok

The narrator was engaging, the book was good but a little disappointing because I knew who the killer was half way through. I still enjoyed the book though.

VERY GOOD BUT NARRATER IS'NT THE BEST

The book is a great book but the narrater is skiping words and even some pages and it is hard to follow along in the book while listening.
