The last two books in the Alphabet Series left me wanting more from Sue Grafton. I was left feeling like the endings were rushed, characters weren't given the right amount of introduction, or were introduced briefly and then not mentioned again, and wanting more from the storyline.Grafton redeem...

Starting into the second half of the alphabet now and I have to say, reading these books at the rate of one every three months or so is just right for my tastes. Coming to each one of them after a short break like that is like visiting old friends. It’s a comfortable fit.This time around, Kinse...

First off, this is a review on this book specifically. If you want a review on the series as a whole, well here's a link to a wonderfully witty review written by a handsome reviewer (I'm just guessing of course) talking more generally about the series.https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...M is ...

Plot/Summary of Book: It was the silly season and a Monday at that, and Kinsey Millhone was bogged down in a preliminary report on a fire claim. Something was nagging at her, but she couldn't pin it. The last thing she needed in the morning mail was a letter from her bank recording an erroneous $...

I really can't believe how poorly written this was. Now, I know I've been less than satisfied, overall, with the Kinsey Millhone series as I've delved back into it this year (after first reading a few of them more than a decade ago, then tapering off, then deciding this year to just read the whol...

Pros: Grafton's descriptions are beautifully written and immerse the reader in the story. Plot has lots of twists and turns and the style is immensely readable. Grafton has the gift of being able to entertain without sacrificing depth or stylistic sophistication. Characters are varied and interes...

"F is for Fugitive" took longer for me to finish reading than any of Sue Grafton's books so far. Was it because its a bad story? A boring mystery? Maybe not. In this installment of the alphabet murders series of books, Kinsey Milhone is outside of her small town investigating a murder of a yo...

I needed a brain-break, so I thought I'd reread a few of Sue Grafton's alphabet mysteries. I don't read mysteries as a regular thing, and I don't know why I first picked up the Kinsey Millhone books, back when she was only on C or D. They were steady sellers at the feminist bookstore I was workin...

For gumshoe Kinsey Millhone, the year is May 1986 and she has just turned 36 years old. Sue Grafton explains prior to the novel's start that for Kinsey, time moves slower, but at no fault of her own. Grafton says that A is for Alibi began in May 1982, B is for Burglar takes place in June 1982, an...

I'm not entirely comfortable with the Goodreads star system. All through school I was judged on a 10 points scale, and a 6 was a very low grade, just a step above the barely passed examination (5). On that scale Sue Grafton is a comfortable 8 - intelligent, intriguing, elegant. But I have read be...

So here we are at the 18th Kinsey Millhone mystery, and as is the case with a lot of these books, this is a really mixed bag. However, this time, it's the non-case work that's the most interesting (pretty sure that's a first for me). There were some moments to the main story, but on the whole I...
K is for Killer (1997)

Maybe it's pointless to jump into reviewing this series midway through, but K is the first book in Grafton's alphabet so far that's seemed much different than the others. I've thoroughly enjoyed the highly devourable mysteries A-I; J is for Judgment left a sour taste in my mouth only insomuch as ...

This 10th book of the “Alphabet” series is the first one I’ve rated with 5 stars. I’m having a hard time pin-pointing exactly why though. It’s not specifically because Ms. Grafton has “stepped it up a notch” in her writing although the writing has gotten better and better over the series and sh...

I started reading Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series with A is for Alibi, way back in 1982, when it was published. That’s 32 years ago. Kinsey should be about 64 years old now, but that’s another story. I’ve read every single book in the series, which is A LOT of books.I've just listened to ...

At the moment, I don't have it in me to write a full review, so I'm leaving it at this:The only reason I was able to give this even three stars is because William and Henry are priceless.Other than that, I just...didn't really care. While it was better than its predecessor, "V is for Vengeance," ...
