Publisher's Summary

Everyone knew the kind of girl Jean Timberlake was; ask anybody in the sleepy surf town of Floral Beach and they'd say Jean was wild, looking for trouble. But she certainly wasn't looking for murder. She was found dead on the beach 17 years ago, and a rowdy ex-boyfriend named Bailey Fowler was convicted of her murder and imprisoned...and then Bailey escaped.

Now private eye Kinsey Millhone steps into a case that should have never been closed, in a town where there's no such thing as a private investigation.

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

F is for Faithful Filler

I know I said I would put Sue Gafton aside for the rest of the year, but I couldn’t help picking up another Kinsey Millhone instalment. I wanted to read something that I knew in advance would be a guaranteed good read, and this series never disappoints.

I can’t add anything new to my reviews of Sue Grafton and Kinsey Millhone books; I have said everything I can in regards to this series, in a nutshell: I love them!

After this I have G, H, and O to go and I am all caught up until X comes out (in 2015?)

Fabulous

That one word above says it all. Fantastic! With out a doubt, most of her books are in the A pluses for me. Maybe she can switch to numbers next, and have a true man developing in her world? Just saying

I live here!

What made the experience of listening to F is for Fugitive the most enjoyable?

What made this book extra special to me... we live and work in San Luis Obispo, CA. So it was exceptionally cool to know of the locations discussed in this book!

One aspect late on felt a little forced, but otherwise another great Kinsey Milhone novel.
