A tough-talking former cop, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has set up a modest detective agency in a quiet corner of Santa Teresa, California. A twice-divorced loner with few personal possessions and fewer personal attachments, she’s got a soft spot for underdogs and lost causes.  Eight years ago, Nikki Fife was convicted of killing her philandering husband. Now she’s out on parole and needs Kinsey’s help to find the real killer.  If there's one thing that makes Kinsey feel alive, it's playing on the edge. When her investigation turns up a second corpse, more suspects, and a new reason to kill, Kinsey discovers that the edge is closer—and sharper—than she imagined.

4.0 An Alphabetical Read-Together!
Can you believe that I had never read any of the Kinsey Millhone books? Pretty much everyone can probably recognize that mystery is far and away my favorite genre, right?

4.0 The Beginning of Kinsey Millhone
The first book in the Kinsey Millhone series. Though I love the series, the first book did have some issues. I think at times the book's flow got a bit rough. And the characters are not very developed yet. Grafton gives a short description of Kinsey. It takes a lot of books to find out about her las...

2.5 Drudgery is not my cup
This is not my genre. Lot's of driving, lot's of talking. Spining wheels in place. There was also a lot of "look what I reseached, isn't it interesting". In little pieces, mercifully, but the instances were numerous. That said, nice trick with the cynical detective/femme fatale trope. Some of the ...

4.0 A jak alibi
Powieść sensacyjna z cyklu alfabet zbrodni, pełna szybkich i niespodziewanych zwrotów akcji , czyta się z wielkim zaciekawieniem i salwami śmiechu. Dlaczego alibi w tytule? Dowiadujemy się tego na końcu książki. Ciekawy rozwój akcji, bardzo plastyczne i barwne sylwetki bohaterów, zdrada, miłość i ni...

2.0 A is for Alibi Review
I enjoyed this book for the most part. The writing doesn't feel too terribly dated, in fact the only thing that really stood out was that there was no cell phones. The plot is your typical mystery. Nothing more. Nothing less. If you've read anything by Lawrence Block or Dashiell Hammett or John D. M...
