Kinsey Millhone never sees it coming. She is mired in the case of a doctor who disappeared, his angry ex-wife, and beautiful current one- a case that is full of unfinished business, unfinished homes, and people drifting in and out of their own lives. Then Kinsey gets a shock. A man she finds attractive is hiding a fatal secret- and now a whole lot of beauty, money, and lies are proving to be a fatal distraction from what Kinsey should have seen all along: a killer standing right before her eyes. . . .

About the author

Biography of Grafton, Sue

Sue Grafton was born in Louisville, Kentucky on April 24, 1940. She received a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Louisville in 1961. While working days as a medical secretary, she spent her nights, after her children went to sleep, writing her first novels Keziah Dane, which was published in 1967 and The Lolly-Madona War, which was published in 1969. Her career took off when A Is for Alibi was published in 1982 and received the Mysterious Stranger Award.

This was the beginning of the Kinsey Millhone Mystery series. B Is for Burglar won the Shamus and Anthony Awards and C Is for Corpse won the Anthony Award. She has also spent over 15 years writing television and movie screenplays and has collaborated with her third husband, Steven F. Humphrey, on such works as the Agatha Christie adaptations: A Caribbean Mystery and Sparkling Cyanide.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2001-04-15)

In her 15th alphabetical mystery, Grafton deserves an A for maintaining her series's high standard of excellence. This time private investigator Kinsey Milhone is hired by Dr. Fiona Purcell to find her ex-husband, Dowan, a prominent physician who vanished with his passport and $30, 000 in cash nine weeks earlier. Wondering what she can do that the Santa Rosa police haven't done already, Kinsey takes the case and quickly discovers that the nursing home Purcell administered is being investigated for Medicare fraud.

Was Purcell involved or did the facility's owners have something to do with his disappearance? And what about his second wife, ex-stripper Crystal, who Fiona believes is having an affair with her personal trainer? At the same time, Kinsey's losing streak with men continues as she is pursued romantically by her new office landlord's brother. Unfortunately for Kinsey, her new Mr. Right and his sibling are suspects in the murder of their parents. As usual, Grafton mixes an intriguing plot, well-developed characters, and humor into an entertaining summer read.
