About this deal

Back in California, Kinsey is mystified that Nikki's son, Colin, recognizes Laurence's first wife, Gwen, in a photograph. As she began digging into the lives of the people who had been connected to the divorce lawyer – his ex-wife, his children, his law partner – she was frustrated. What I particularly like about A is for Alibi is the plain, straight forward plot and the fact that, through Millhone, Grafton shows us a much more plausible tale of investigating than some of the more higher profile, blockbusting thrillers on the market. The books in the series were on The New York Times Best Seller list for an aggregate of about 400 weeks. Of course, the murder happened five years ago and trying to dredge up history is never easy, but if it were easy everyone would want to do it.

Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion. She is about to meet her duplicitious match in a couple of world-class prevaricators who quite literally take her for the ride of her life.This book kicks off the alphabet murders series, a set of novels by Sue Grafton each with a letter of the alphabet and introduces us to her private eye anti-heroine Kinsey Millhone. Money constraints however, along with many other books in my wish list, means it is going to take some time, but that's OK. Before those less enthusiastic words, they had said, "The female detective is well drawn and the plot moves at a fast clip".

She uses a small corner of a suite of offices owned by California Fidelity Insurance Company; they give her the use of the space in exchange for occasional investigation.stars to A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton, the first book in the Kinsey Millhone private investigator cozy mystery series. This is the book that introduced Kinsey Millhone and helped inaugurate a new era in crime fiction when female investigators like Millhone and Sara Paretsky's V. Kinsey Millhone should have done something else—she should have turned the car in the direction of home. Needless to say, Sue Grafton took a ride up mystery mountain (she didn’t actually quit her day job until “G” IS FOR GUMSHOE”) where she currently looks down at the rest of us mere mystery mortals and probably laughs occasionally.
