Publisher's Summary

Good and bad things seem to be coming in threes for Kinsey Millhone: on her 33rd birthday she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of ex-con Tyrone Patty's hit list. It's the last that convinces Kinsey even she can't handle whoever's been hired to whack her, and she gets herself a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porsche-driving P.I. who takes guarding Kinsey's body very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into her case. And before it's over, she'll unearth the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, come face-to-face with her own mortality.

Critic Reviews

"Wit is the most versatile weapon in Sue Grafton's well-stocked arsenal, and she uses it with disarming precision....Grafton excels in this milieu." (Newsweek) "The story is complex; the body-count high; the sexual encounters feverish; and the villains chilling, in another can't-put-it-down outing for this talented author." (Kirkus Reviews)

Bad Sound Editing

Typical great Sue Grafton story, but the sound editing was terrible. There are long sound gaps between sentences that break the flow of the story. It's very noticable and very irritating. If you're not totally committed to listening, you find your mind wondering during the gaps. Love the story, hate the gaps!

G is for GREAT!

Sue Grafton is a hit every time. I am going to miss this dependably entertaining series once it’s over!!

Once I read “H” I’ll be all caught up and in for a long long wait until “X” comes out in (presumably) 2015.

Good story

Quite a light hearted murder tale, not too taxing but worth a listen. Sometimes it is nice just to have a story that doesn't get you keyed up and stressed. This is one of those novels, I enjoyed it, the characters are likeable and the plot was quite clever.

Yet another brilliant audiobook by Sue Grafton. Read by Judy Kaye, each book follows her story of Kinsey, a Private Eye whose own life runs through from A to V . Every book a refreashing new start, to a nail biteing end.
