Publisher's Summary

The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. The weekend before, he'd bought a stack of cardboard boxes. In one, there was a collection of childhood memorabilia with Kinsey's name all over it. Though she's never been one for personal possessions, curiosity is a powerful force. What she finds among the items is an old undelivered letter to her that will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of her first marriage...about the honor of her first husband...and about an old unsolved murder. It will put her life in the gravest peril.
Through 14 books, listeners have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past: a morsel here, a dollop there. You know about the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one has remained a blip on the screen. Until now. "O" Is for Outlaw is a revealing excursion into Kinsey's past.

Liked the book, but not the recorded quality

The book is what you have come to expect with the ABC murders.

This is my first time with Judy Kaye reading the series. I am not sure I agree with her as a choice. While her characterizations are fine in general, she make Kinsey sound 50 years old and Henry sound feable.

My major gripe with this audio is the quality of the recording. The narrators pitch and voice level changed while "playing" Kinsey so much I thought there were multiple people narrating. I don't blame her, but the people who recorded the book. BAD WORK. I have grown accustom to practically unnoticed splices. I might notice a splice once or twice in a book. I noticed the splicing at least 4 or 5 times in each chapter.

This book is in a desparate need of re-recording. If this had been my first book with audible, I would probably not buy again. But there is always a bad apple in the bunch. I guess this was just one of them. Lets hope "P" is better.

Did not like the narrator

I have listened to the Millhone books starting with A and having just finished O. First let me tell you that if you are considering reading any book in this series, I highly recommend starting at the beginning of the alphabet. You will better understand the characters and events and how they are relate from A to B to C, etc.

I have truly enjoyed these books by Ms. Grafton. I however did not like this narrator. She makes Kinsey sound 50 years old! Mary Peiffer did an outstanding job with narrating in books A through N and I was quite disturbed at such a drastic change in narration. Also the recording quality was very poor on this book. Despite the above mentioned negatives: I am addicted to the series and have just downloaded P through T, the only remaining books in the series available from Audible.com at this time.

'Respectfully submitted,'
