'MY NAME IS KINSEY MILLHONE. I'M A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR, LICENSED BY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. I'M THIRTY TWO YEARS OLD, TWICE DIVORCED, NO KIDS, THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY I KILLED SOMEONE AND THE FACT WEIGHS HEAVILY ON MY MIND...'
When Laurence Fife was murdered, few cared. A slick divorce attorney with a reputation for ruthlessness, Fife was also rumoured to be a slippery ladies' man. Plenty of people in the picturesque Southern California town of Santa Teresa had reason to want him dead including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, Nikki. With motive, access and opportunity, Nikki was their number one suspect and the Jury thought so too.
Eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed her husband. But the trail has gone cold and there is a chilling twist even Kinsey didn't expect...

And yet, somehow, I had managed to studiously avoid reading a single one of Grafton's wildly popular and incredibly long series a...
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...
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 ...
