Publisher's Summary

Of number-one New York Times best-selling author Sue Grafton, NPR's Maureen Corrigan said, "Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters." With only two letters left, Grafton's many devoted listeners will share that sentiment.
X: the number 10. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss.
X: the shortest entry in Webster's Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: Think xylophone.
X: the 24th letter in the English alphabet.
Sue Grafton's X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this sociopath. The test is whether Kinsey can prove her case against him before she becomes his next victim.

My X-pectations were too high

Many of the complaints I read about this book centered around the fact that there was “too much filler” but that didn’t bother me at all! I like the filler and I like the way it makes me feel like I am just hanging out with Kinsey. Had the book just all been filler I think I would have enjoyed it much more.

What disappointed me was the general lack of a good story. I didn’t get the point of any of it, it felt too jumpy and disjointed… I had trouble following.

Also, I found it particularly annoying how easily EVERYBODY blabs. People she just met and to whom she posed just one question all spill their beans to her on the spot; too easy.

Ah well, win some – lose some. I’m still in for Y in 2017!

What a disappointment

What disappointed you about X?

3 different story lines that were of no real mystery. Not at all what I have come to expect from this story. It's as if the author ran out of steam. Boring, Boring, Boring.


What was most disappointing about Sue Grafton’s story?

I would give away too much but the story was just silly and not at all the interesting mystery that I enjoy in this series.


Would you be willing to try another one of Judy Kaye’s performances?
