Publisher's Summary

Lorna Kepler was beautiful and willful, a loner who couldn't resist flirting with danger. Maybe that's what killed her.

Her death had raised a host of tough questions. The cops suspected homicide, but they could find neither motive nor suspect. Even the means were mysterious: Lorna's body was so badly decomposed when it was discovered that they couldn't be certain she hadn't died of natural causes. In the way of overworked cops everywhere, the case was gradually shifted to the back burner and became another unsolved file. Only Lorna's mother kept it alive, consumed by the certainty that somebody out there had gotten away with murder. So she hired Kinsey Millhone, P.I.

Abridged--almost never a good bet!

While waiting for the next installment of the Kinsey books to come out (V is for Vengeance was the last one, so we are almost at the end of the alphabet) - I thought I would go back and pick up a few that I've missed. Since I really like the voice of Judy Kaye, I did not download the unabridged version. Big Mistake

Almost no character development, and jumping from one scene to the next with literally no connection between events was so frustrating. Hard to even tell what the story was actually about. No one to blame but myself- but maybe this will save someone else from doing the same thing.
