A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find…. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this deadly sociopath. The test is whether private investigator Kinsey Millhone can prove her case against him—before she becomes his next victim. W is For Wasted. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation.
It looked like a robbery gone bad.
The other was on the beach six weeks later. Probably homeless. No identification. 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. 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.
And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised. W is for. W is for wasted. W is for Wasted. Private investigator Kinsey Millhone finds shocking connections between two seemingly unrelated deaths in this 1 New York Times bestselling mystery in the Alphabet series. The first victim is a local PI of suspect reputation, gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. Two seemingly unrelated deaths: one man murdered, the other apparently dead of natural causes. But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange links begin to emerge.
And before long Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised…. V is for Vengeance. A woman with a murky past who kills herself—or was it murder? A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt who thinks he can beat the system. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring working for the Mob, racking up millions from stolen goods. A wandering husband, rich and ruthless. A dirty cop so entrenched on the force he is immune to exposure. A sinister gangster, conscienceless and brutal. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers, which may be worse than the pain of his loss.
A private detective, Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose.
And an elegant and powerful businessman whose dealings are defnitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web. V: Victim. U is for Undertow. Sue Grafton takes the mystery genre to new heights with this twisting, complex 1 New York Times bestseller that draws private investigator Kinsey Millhone into a case shrouded in the sins of the past.
When he was six, he says, he wandered into the woods and saw two men digging a hole.
They claimed they were pirates, looking for buried treasure. Now, all these years later, the long-forgotten events have come back to him—and he has pieced them together with news reports from the time, becoming convinced that he witnesses the burial of a kidnapped child. Kinsey has nearly nothing to go on.
More titles to consider
Despite her doubts, Kinsey sets out to track down the so-called burial site. T Is for Trespass. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the perspective of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. The true horror of this novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene. T is for Trespass—dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, and the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependent—targets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric.
Grafton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of the horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying. T is for Trespass. To help, Kinsey runs a check on the applicant, Solana Rojas. And it sounds like she did a good job for her former employers. So Kinsey gives her the thumbs-up, figuring Gus will be the ideal assignment for this diligent, experienced caregiver.
And the real Solana Rojas was indeed an excellent caregiver.
