9780449221501: K Is for Killer (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries)

When Kinsey Millhone answers her office door late one night, she lets in more darkness than she realizes. Janice Kepler is a grieving mother who can't let the death of her beautiful daughter Lorna alone. The police agree that Lorna was murdered, but a suspect was never apprehended and the trail is now ten months cold. Kinsey pieces together Lorna's young life: a dull day job a the local water treatment plant spiced by sidelines in prostitution and pornography. She tangles with Lorna's friends: a local late-night DJ; a sweet, funny teenaged hooker; Lorna's sloppy landlord and his exotic wife. But to find out which one, if any, turned killer, Kinsey will have to inhabit a netherworld from which she may never return.

From the Publisher:

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 Sales

From the Back Cover:

‘K' is for Kinsey in her "most ambitious" (The Wall Street Journal) adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton

K is for KINSHIP...

Janice Kepler is on the way home from the support group she joined after the death of her beloved daughter, Lorna. When she sees a light on in the offices of Millhone Investigations, she believes it's a sign...and decides to knock on the door.

K is for KINETIC...

Janice has waited long enough for Lorna's case to pick up steam, and she is relieved when Kinsey Millhone agrees to finish the work authorities left undone. Ten months before, local police had suspected homicide, but never could find a suspect―or a motive. The trail went cold. And Lorna's death remained a mystery...

K is for Killer

Now Kinsey is about to be pulled into a netherworld of unavenged murder and damaged survivors...where sometimes it takes a deal with the devil to survive.

"Impressive, fascinating...Smart, funny Kinsey takes a stroll on the dark side in [this] intriguingly offbeat mystery."―The New York Times Book Review
