Publisher's Summary

When David Barney was acquitted in the shooting death of his wife, Isabelle, a good many thought that justice had not been served, including Kenneth Voight, Isabelle's former husband. Now, five years later, Voight is the plaintiff in a civil suit in which Barney stands accused of Isabelle's wrongful death. The stakes are high (Isabelle's estate is worth millions), but time is running short: the statute of limitations will cut Voight off in only a matter of weeks. Enter sexy, savvy ex-cop-turned-P.I. Kinsey Millhone, brought in by Voight to gather the necessary damning evidence. It doesn't take long, however, for Kinsey to find that while a lot of people hate David Barney, a lot more hated Isabelle. Suddenly, a simple civil case becomes a deadly hunt for someone who once got away with murder, and may again.

What the Critics Say

"A sober, resolute Kinsey, romanceless at the moment, and a clever, meaty puzzle....Rack up another winner for Grafton." (Kirkus Reviews)

Great all the way around

Another great story from Sue Grafton. Keeps you wondering as to "who done it"! Now I am on to "J".
Have to disagree with the other reviewer...I do like the narrator ...she actually makes the story better in my opinion.

I Is for Innocent: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

The Kinsey Millhone's stories are easy reads/listen. The storylines are good and have enough suspense, mystery and unexpected twists to hold the listener's interest and attention. The storylines are varied from one book to another and the story being told relates the alphabet letter in the title of the novel.

The Publisher's Summary is an excellent synopsis of this story. To say more would most likely spoil the story for interested listeners.

I've enjoyed a few of Kinsey Millhone's stories. I love her sense of humor and dogged, relentlessness as she unravels the details of the story and ultimately unmask the wrong doer. Kinsey Millhone's stories can be read in any order. But reading in order (or nearly) will give the reader a good sense of who she is and how she has evolved in the PI world. Overall, however, Sue Grafton's story telling is much like tuning into your favorite TV show, you already know the setting, the premise (finding a wrong doer), some of the relationships, and each new story is a new adventure.

Most of the stories that I've read were narrated by Judy Kaye. This is the first one I've listened to which is narrated by Mary Peiffer. Although I prefer listening to narrator Judy Kaye's voice -- even though her voice sounds a bit older than Kinsey's age -- Mary Peiffer's voice is similar enough to Judy's and even sounds a bit younger. So, for me, Mary is a close second to Judy.

Recommend Kinsey Millhone Mysteries....
