Publisher's Summary

How do you prove the innocence of a man already found guilty of murder?

That's the task Kinsey Millhone is faced with when she takes on the case of Bailey Fowler. These are the facts: Jean Timberlake, Bailey's girlfriend, was found dead on the sands of Floral Beach, California, 17 years ago. Bailey, drug addict and convicted felon, with no good alibi, was sent to the slammer, even though he swore he didn't do it. After escaping less than a year before, he successfully disappeared until he was picked up on a fluke of mistaken identify. Can Kinsey prevent him from being sent back to prison by finding the real killer? And what kinds of deadly passions and murderous intentions will she stir up as she searches for the truth?

Critic Reviews

"Sue Grafton has created perhaps the most likeable female private eye in the business." (Boston Globe)
"It's hard to imagine anyone doing a better job with Grafton's popular alphabet series than Tony winner Judy Kaye." (L.A. Life)

A great background listen for work.

This book is very well narrated by Judy Kaye. The killer is guessable despite the many herrings. But there is still plenty of suspense and the ending iis well done.
