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 fact-to-face with her own mortality.

What the Critics Say

"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)

Good story, over quickly

This felt a bit simpler than many Kinsey Milhone stories, and consequently shorter. It was still very enjoyable. Such an excellent series if books.
