Publisher's Summary

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs. The true horror of the novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene. T Is for Trespass, dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependent, targets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric. Garfton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying.

Simon gives it thumbs down:-(

Honestly, all I seem to notice in the mysteries I'm listening to lately is how they all seem to have gone into print without being edited! The amount of unnecessary detail in this book triples it's length - at least. I could care less which street she is on in this imaginary town and where she is turning right, parking near the pet shop, and pocketing her keys.

In a good mystery, the inclusion of little details are CLUES!! So you go past them blithely at your peril. But Grafton has never learned this lesson. Yes, her first few books were good (and much shorter), but this 26-book contract has been a big dissapointment.

I finished it because the plot is interesting (as always), but it's a slog, folks.

T is for Tiresome

This narration was way too long considering the limited amount of content. The protagonist's personality as demonstrated in this book is not particularly interesting. The mysteries to be solved are not earth shattering in nature. Many of the plot twists were predictable chapters ahead.

There are many better books to listen to than this one. S is for Silence, written by this author, is one of them.

Judy Kay is a wonderful narrator.
