Publisher's Summary

When David Barney was acquitted in the shooting death of his wife, Isabelle, a good many thought that justice had not been served, including Kenneth Voight, Isabelle's former husband. Now, five years later, Voight is the plaintiff in a civil suit in which Barney stands accused of Isabelle's wrongful death. The stakes are high (Isabelle's estate is worth millions), but time is running short: the statute of limitations will cut Voight off in only a matter of weeks. Enter sexy, savvy ex-cop-turned-P.I. Kinsey Millhone, brought in by Voight to gather the necessary damning evidence. It doesn't take long, however, for Kinsey to find that while a lot of people hate David Barney, a lot more hated Isabelle. Suddenly, a simple civil case becomes a deadly hunt for someone who once got away with murder, and may again.
Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

over the top narration

the book like all Sue Grafton mysteries is very good
the narrator does an interesting voice for Kinsey but all other characters have a similar shrill accent-something like cartoon hillbilly-hardly southern California
it is very grating and distracting from the characters
