Publisher's Summary

Once again, Kinsey Millhone, America's favorite female P.I., embroils herself in a complex and entertaining Alphabet Murder Mystery.

When Wendell Jaffe, mastermind of a real-estate scam, disappeared at sea, no body was found. Now, five years later, he's declared legally dead, and California Fidelity has to pay up on his life insurance policy, to the tune of half-a-million dollars. Soon after, the tune slides off-key when Jaffe is spotted in Mexico and Fidelity hires Kinsey Millhone to sort things out. Oddly enough, Kinsey's investigation of the con man's past triggers a surprising inquiry into her own family history. And, as the two stories intertwine, our favorite P.I. finds herself facing dangerous consequences.

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

    "A worthwhile addition to the series."

    I enjoy this series, even if some of Kinsey's behavior is inconsistent. I really like Mary Pfeiffer's narration. These are always a great palate cleanser between heavier stuff like Clancy.

    "Reliable"

    I like this series. Always interesting and never a let-down.

    I also like her slightly sarcastic style - makes me smile.

    Story
    "One of her best."

    I've read the preceding books in the series - and found them a good way to unwind at the end of the day, throughout the week - or weeks. This one I fnished in a couple of days and was sad to see (hear) it end. I played it every chance I got. I didn't predict who the killer was, but it also wasn't a case of there was no way you could've seen it coming - I realized that I should at least have suspected the person (except that I'm not actively trying to solve the case - I'm enjoying the tale). Kinsey's suspisions seem natural for an experienced detective (in my non-detective opinion).

    regarding narration: I think I am a picky person as far as narrators go- I've quit unfinished books from being so irritated by the voice actor - and not purchased others. I actually think I have some auditory sensitivity that makes more easily annoyed than most. I like this narrator. She has a good voice for narration, and I can easily distinguish changes in characters - without the male voices sounding weird or creepy. She's subtle and her voice is pleasant.

    "Many production errors..."

    Story and performance on par with A - I, but many production errors. Several places with repeated text, awkward chapter breaks. Story is still followable, but the production causes a minor irritation in an otherwise enjoyable listening experience.

    "Another outstanding Kinsey Milhone"

    This is another outstanding Sue Grafton novel. This book (which I originally read as a paperback) really manages to cover a range of aspects of the case as well as begin a thread about Kinsey herself. Grafton lays out parallels between the case and Kinsey's own life in a very open way that respects the intelligence that we associate with her narrator and would have felt forced if not overt. Great book.
