A Kinsey Millhone mystery. . .
Good and bad things seem to be coming in threes for Kinsey Millhone: on her thirty-third birthday she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of ex-con Tyrone Patty's hit list. It's the last that convinces Kinsey even she can't handle whoever's been hired to whack her, and she gets herself a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porsche-driving P.I. who takes guarding Kinsey's body very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into her case. And before it's over, she'll unearth the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, come fact-to-face with her own mortality. . . .

You can understand why Sue Grafton's private eye Kinsey Millhone has captured the attention and continued loyalty of her ongoing fans. Sue Grafton has the ability to place Kinsey in fascinating situations where she has to use her wily instincts to solve mysteries. Since both author and heroine reside just north of Santa Barbara, the series is especially loved in California. My book buyers always put Grafton's books at the top of their bestseller lists. --Nanci Andersen, Ballantine SalesFrom the Inside Flap:
"G" is for Gumshoe. "G" is also for guilt and guile, greed and grief, and the grim reaper.
Three things happened to Kinsey Millhone on May 5th -- the day she turned 33: the reconstruction of her apartment was completed; she was hired by a Mrs. Clyde Gersh to bring her mother back from the Mojave desert; and she made one of the top slots on Tyrone Patty's hit list. Obviously, it would turn out to be a birthday to remember.
Santa Teresa's favorite P.I. is, once again, on a case at the heart of which is a long-buried betrayal -- and someone would like nothing better than to bury Kinsey along with it.
