solving a 50 year old murder????
am 15. Dezember 2005
I have never read a Sue Grafton Novel prior to this and I have been missing out! Femalie private detective, from Santa Teresa, CA, Kinsey Millhone is on the case of 5 decade old murder at the request of Daisy Sullivan. Daisy's Mom, Vilolet, Disappeared on 4th of July 1953. No one could ever figure out if Violet took off with am an or was murdered. Violet was considered trailer trash by most so no one really cared. When Kinsey starts investigating some of the locals get their hackles up, and then Kinsey realizes she is in danger. There are Plenty of surprises, and twists and turns.
The author uses an intersting writing style, switching voice in the book, from frist person Kinsey, to flashbacks of what occurred back in 1953. This could have been confusing but Grafton does a wonderful job of making this work. and even manages to avoid the problem of giving too much away. This is a series but the book stands alone (though now I am curious to read some of the earlier books).
I also have to recommend the Underground thriller hit "Tourist in the Yucatan" Thanks to a Pirate for telling me about it!
