Title: D is for Deadbeat
Author: Sue Grafton
Finished: September 21, 2009
It’s been awhile since I picked up a Kinsey Millhone book, but this one did not disappoint, moved quicker than the others, and help my attention to the very end.
It’s taken me awhile to get into these books, but I’m finding that after each one I enjoy them a little more. Kinsey Millhone is a great private investigator who is just a regular woman working in the world. There is no drama associated with her, which is probably why its hard to get into them. She cuts straight through to the important stuff and doesn’t dwell on unnecessaries.
This time Kinsey is hired by a man to deliver a check, not knowing the real circumstances behind it. She soon comes to find out that she was tricked, no one is who they say they are, and everyone is keeping a secret. I even had doubts about who the possible killer could be until the very end when all pieces started fitting together.
