"Wit is the most versatile weapon in Sue Grafton's well-stocked arsenal, and she uses it with disarming precision....Grafton excels in this milieu." (Newsweek)
"The story is complex; the body-count high; the sexual encounters feverish; and the villains chilling, in another can't-put-it-down outing for this talented author." (Kirkus Reviews)
Typical great Sue Grafton story, but the sound editing was terrible. There are long sound gaps between sentences that break the flow of the story. It's very noticable and very irritating. If you're not totally committed to listening, you find your mind wondering during the gaps. Love the story, hate the gaps!

Sue Grafton is a hit every time. I am going to miss this dependably entertaining series once it’s over!!
Once I read “H” I’ll be all caught up and in for a long long wait until “X” comes out in (presumably) 2015.

So which Kinsey is it, the sharp, witty detective, or the deer-in-the-headlights young lady? This story has both, which makes me wonder if Kinsey is a little neurotic. A good story, but sometimes she gets into situations where she should definitely know better, given her background. Oh well, guess we'll see how she does next time around, if she lives that long!
Dietz storyline was not believable. Irene storyline was great; wished there was more to that.
I love the book!! The narrator is very good, Sue writing was excellent for this book.
If you enjoy detective writers you will enjoy Sue Grafton's books. They are 'light reading'. The detective stories are tight and not much blood is spilled. This has a bit more sex than most, but it is not graphic and certainly in no way kinky. The travails of a young female high school redel turned private investigator.
Still enjoy every minute! Already read most of this series and just as good second time around!
Would you listen to G is for Gumshoe again? Why?
Great story again with Kinsey at the helm - love the narration and the characters - feel like good friends I get to fondly visit every few months. Look forward to my next visit with Kinsey & co
I've been listening to this series from the beginning and felt this was the best so far. While in the early books, I was able to guess 'who dunnit' relatively early in the book, this one had great twists and turns, keeping me pulled in until the end.
Some alphabet novels are better than others and this is one that is pretty good, but not as "thrilling" as some of her others, but a good read nonetheless.
Quite a light hearted murder tale, not too taxing but worth a listen. Sometimes it is nice just to have a story that doesn't get you keyed up and stressed. This is one of those novels, I enjoyed it, the characters are likeable and the plot was quite clever.
