Publisher's Summary

It started with the murder of Kinsey Millhone's sometime drinking buddy, an insurance claims adjuster. But before long Kinsey stumbles onto a massive insurance scam. Going undercover as a wisecracking vamp, Millhone descends into the Los Angeles nether world of machismo and gang hideouts. Her companion, terrified at having crossed the violent crook Raymond Maldonado, is Bibianna Diaz, no Girl Scout herself.

What the Critics Say

"The eighth in Grafton's best-selling series is perhaps the wildest ride yet....Grafton's skill with dialogue, her vivid characterizations and California scenery are priceless....There are moments when the tension becomes so unbearable that you are tempted to skip paragraphs out of self-preservation." (USA Today)
"One of the best....A vivid, funny portrait of life in an ethnic underworld, viewed without judgment. Suspense there is, plentifully, and a final suggestion that Kinsey will be exploring different mischiefs next time. Outstanding." (Los Angeles Times)

Abrupt Ending!

This book ends so fast that it truly lacks finality. You're listening along and within seconds the whole thing is wrapped up and the listener is left feeling rather empty. You don't really sympathize with any of the characters, especially Kinsey. Also, the sound editing is so choppy that it's hard to pay attention to the dialog. Not Grafton's best.

Sue Grafton can do no wrong!

This is it now, I am all caught up with the series - obviously all read out of order since this is “H” and the series is up to “W”.

I adore the Kinsey Milhone character so much; I am going to miss not having her around on a regular basis! I’m going from 23 instalments in 6 years, to a new instalment every 2 years.

Will be sad to reach the end.
