The second book “B”, I thought, was much better than “A”. A definite improvement and I can feel Grafton coming into her own as a series writer.

Kinsey is hired to search for a missing woman, whose sister needs her signature for an inheritance document. At first Kinsey believes this will be an easy find, but soon realizes there is more than meets the eye with pretty much everyone she questions. The hard part is figuring out who is lying, and who is faking their identity, and who is really in danger of being killed off next.

Almost from the very beginning I was intrigued by the story and trying to formulate my own opinions. This story was more graphic than the last and many moments I cringed at the thought of finding myself in similiar situations.

It was very descriptive and I grew to like Kinsey a little more, but still a little unsure about her character development. So far there isn’t much in Kinsey’s background that jumps out at me and makes me like her or sympathize with her even more. Can’t wait to see what else is in store.
