The client came to Kinsey Millhone with an easy  job -- just deliver $25,000 to a fifteen-year-old  kid. A little odd, and a little too easy, but  Kinsey took Alvin Limardo's retainer check anyway. It  turned out to be as phony as he was. In real life,  his name was John Daggett, a chronic drunk with a  record as long as your arm and a reputation for  sleazy deals. But he wasn't just a deadbeat. By the  time Kinsey caught up with him, he was a dead body  -- with a whole host of people who were delighted  to hear the news. But how do you make a stiff pay  up what he owes you?

About the Author:

Sue Grafton entered the mystery field in 1982 with the publication of 'A' Is for Alibi, which introduced female hard-boiled private investigator, Kinsey Millhone, operating out of the fictional town of Santa Teresa, (aka Santa Barbara) California. 'B' is for Burglar followed in 1985 and the series, now referred to as 'the alphabet' mysteries, is still going strong. In addition to her books, she’s published several Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, has written numerous movies for television, including “A Killer in the Family” (starring Robert Mitchum), “Love on the Run” (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist) and two Agatha Christie adaptations, “Sparkling Cyanide” and “Caribbean Mystery,” which starred Helen Hayes. Grafton is published in 28 countries and 26 languages. She loves cats, gardens, and good cuisine. Sue has a home in Montecito, California, and another in Louisville, the city in which she was born and raised.
