Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Nord Lafferty was already in his fifties when Reba was born, and he could deny her nothing. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institution for Women. Now, at thirty-two, she is about to be paroled, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers." "It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the rules of her parole. Maybe all of a week's work. Nothing untoward - the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good." But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than twenty-four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling round.

5.0 A very different story from Sue Grafton
This is a very different story from the previous Kinsey stories and it's gotten some bad reviews because of that but it's in the top 5 for me. It's clever and kept my curiosity up through the whole story. Kinsey has been hired by a elderly gentlemen to pick up his 30 year old daughter, Reba, from...

By far the worst of the series so far. I felt like this one was a waste of my time.

R is for Rancid.After starting this book I was wondering how someone could have successfully had a series 18 books long with writing this poor. An hour into reading and I was yet to come across anything other than needless exposition. I then checked the reviews for this and the rest of the series. A...
