B is for Burglar
B is for Burglar - Sue Grafton

After surviving almost being murdered in the first book, Kinsey is still dealing with having to take a life. When she gets another case looking into a missing woman, Kinsey hopes that keeps the ghosts that haunt her at bay. We get more insight into Kinsey, more development for characters like Henry and Lieutenant Dolan. And we get our first glimpse at Jonah Robb and his never ending messy marriage to Camilla.

 

I really loved B is for Burglar. The reveal was really cool and once again Kinsey comes close to death. Though we know there's a whole alphabet to get through, you can guess she survives.

 

The writing and flow was top notch. I felt off balanced reading this (in a good way). I was wondering where Grafton was going to take things next the first time I read this. My re-read was great, cause Grafton sets things up nicely.

 

The setting of this one is Santa Teresa, but Kinsey also goes back and forth to Florida. I still wonder how in the world air travel used to be so cheap.

 

The ending leaves Kinsey slightly worse for wear, but alive and kicking.

An inordinate amount of time and dialogue spent setting up Bernie's English Country House Mystery...
