Publisher's Summary

Call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest novel with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as a bad girl, quick-witted and quicksilvery, poking her nose into everybody's dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in an Our Gang comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance.

America's favorite borderline delinquent is back with her one-liners on tape and her energy level on high, romping through her fastest and funniest adventure in this, her twelfth foray into the alphabet of crime.

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

Critic Reviews

"Grafton exhibits a sharp ear for dialogue and a quarter-horse pace. Her characters are as real as any this side of Elmore Leonard." K Is for Killer offers further proof of Grafton's growth as a writer. This is one mystery series that gains strength with passing letter. (People)
"An adventure that begins straightforwardly enough but quickly twists into a knotted string of untruths." (Publishers Weekly)

L is for Less than Expected

This abridged version is way too short. I like Judy Kaye so I chose this version, but this book ended before it got started. Out of all the books in this series, this one was my least favorite - even the characters weren't likeable.
