Publisher's Summary

He calls himself Alvin Limardo, and the job he has for Kinsey is cut-and-dried: locate a kid who's done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. Stiffed for the retainer, Kinsey finds out Limardo's real name is John Daggett...ex-con, ex-liar, ex-alcoholic, currently dead.The cops call it an accident but Kinsey differs. Look at his life! A lot of people hated him, from much-abused wives, to drug dealers out big money, to the families of five people he killed driving drunk. In short, Daggett wasn't popular.

Great writing, terrible narrative.

The writing of Sue Grafton is great. I have read her books and thoroughly enjoyed them. I was hoping to find a new level of enjoyment with audible. It's too bad they used the narrator. All the character voices were the same and there was no joy or inflection in her voice when things should have been up beat or funny nor did she use intensity for when things should have been. I used this book to fall asleep to.
