Of the #1 New York Times–bestselling Kinsey Millhone series, NPR said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.” Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I’d never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He’d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He’d been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone’s name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him. Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes. But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. And before long at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity. “And just like that,” she says, “the lid to Pandora’s box flew open. It would take me another day before I understood how many imps had been freed, but for the moment, I was inordinately pleased with myself.” In this multilayered tale, the surfaces seem clear, but the underpinnings are full of betrayals, misunderstandings, and outright murderous fraud. And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised. W is for . . . wanderer . . . worthless . . . wronged . . . W is for wasted.

It was nice to tie the story into her previous books. I felt the book was too long, but still a good read.

3.0 W is for Weary
Getting into this one was a little slow-going. I borrowed the audiobook version from the public library. It was told from two points of view - Kinsey's, first person voice, and then it dropped into third person when telling the other part of the story that would eventually tie in with Kinsey's lat...

4.0 W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton
Ms. Grafton has done it yet again. The wait was well worth it. For the first time the overall tone was low key. The mayhem happens to others, not to Kinsey. Well, almost. This is very intentional. The book is about the homeless. They are low-key and fade into the background, but are people ...
