This will leave readers both relishing another masterful entry and ruing the near-end of this series. Prime Grafton * Booklist * Grafton once again proves herself a superb storyteller * Publishers Weekly * Grafton constructs an intricate plot following two time lines with at least a dozen characters in play while rarely slowing the pace * Library Journal * I'm going to miss Kinsey Millhone. Ever since the first of Sue Grafton's Alphabet mysteries, A Is For Alibi, came out in 1982, Kinsey has been a good friend and the very model of an independent woman, a gutsy Californian P.I. rocking a traditional man's job . . . It's Kinsey herself who keeps this series so warm and welcoming. She's smart, she's resourceful, and she's tough enough to be sensitive on the right occasions * New York Times *
