Laurence Fife was a slick divorce lawyer and  slippery ladies' man. Until someone killed him. The  jury believed that it was his pretty young wife  Nikki, so they sent her to prison for eight years.  Now, Nikki's out on parole and Kinsey Miihone's in  for trouble. Nikki hires Kinsey to discover who  really killed her husband. But the trail is eight  years cold, and at the end is a chilling twist even  Kinsey doesn't suspect -- a second eight-year-old  murder and a brand new corpse.

From the Back Cover:

READ THE SENSATIONAL BLOCKBUSTER THAT STARTED IT ALL!

Take it from the top in #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton's knockout thriller that introduced detective Kinsey Millhone?and a hot new attitude?to crime fiction...

A IS FOR AVENGER
A tough-talking former cop, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has set up a modest detective agency in a quiet corner of Santa Teresa, California. A twice-divorced loner with few personal possessions and fewer personal attachments, she's got a soft spot for underdogs and lost causes.

A IS FOR ACCUSED
That's why she draws desperate clients like Nikki Fife. Eight years ago, she was convicted of killing her philandering husband. Now she's out on parole and needs Kinsey's help to find the real killer. But after all this time, clearing Nikki's bad name won't be easy.

A IS FOR ALIBI
If there's one thing that makes Kinsey Millhone feel alive, it's playing on the edge. When her investigation turns up a second corpse, more suspects, and a new reason to kill, Kinsey discovers that the edge is closer?and sharper?than she imagined.

"A class act."
?Stanley Ellin

"Smart, well-paced, and very funny."
?Newsweek
