9780739323151: T Is For Trespass (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)

tres·pass \'tres-p  s\ n: a transgression of law involving one’s obligations to God or to one’s neighbor; a violation of moral law; an offense; a sin –Webster’s New International Dictionary (second edition, unabridged)

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton’s T is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the perspective of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private care-giving  jobs. The true horror of this novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene.

T is for Trespass–dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, and the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependenttargets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric. Grafton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of the horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying.

About the Author:

Sue Grafton lives in Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky.

From AudioFile:

Judy Kaye simply is Kinsey Millhone. When Kinsey is on her daily run, Judy is short of breath. When Kinsey is being strangled by a 300-pound sociopath, Judy can barely force air through her throat. Kaye, who has narrated all of GraftonÕs Alphabet series, has the task nicely down pat. In addition to Kinsey, she creates many believable female characters, and her men are distinct (if a bit light-voiced). In this, the twentieth novel in the series, Kinsey is living in 1988. Yet the topics are thoroughly up-to-date: identity theft and abuse of the elderly. Fans of the series will be comforted to find that not much has changed in Santa Teresa.
