A wealthy woman needs to find her sister to settle a will. It looks routine... boring. Still, business is slow and even a private investigator has bills to pay, so Kinsey Millhone takes the case.

But this is not routine and the deeper Kinsey digs the trickier things get. The client tries to call Kinsey off, an accusing husband surfaces and a double murder turns the case sinister. Kinsey feels adrift in a fog of distortion, where nothing - except danger - is quite what it seems. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 2/18/2014

    " Very very average. perhaps slightly better than the A book. entirely readable. not particularly well done. I like her writing style, the plot though just goes all over the place. i feel like i need a chart of names at the beginning to help keep everyone straight in my mind ... then partway through the book i give up caring who's who, and i just read 'til it's over... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy McNeil | 2/11/2014

    " I'm not sure that I care much for Kinsey as a PI (she seems kind of average, which isn't how I imagine most mystery authors handle their sleuths), but it is such a fun experience to get to know her (and Grafton has moments of literary brilliance when giving voice to Kinsey's thoughts) that I can get past that. You know, my own judgmental ignorance as to how PIs are supposed to be written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 1/16/2014

    " Sue Grafton's Kinsey Malone series is an easy read. Although not action filled and a series that keeps you on the edge of the seat, it is still enjoyable and I like the Kinsey character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/16/2014

    " Just as good as the first book. I liked the twist in this a little better than Alibi and it was nice to see Grafton continue the character relationships. I see I will end reading all of the books in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 6/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed the mystery in this one. I can't really be convinced to care about main character Kinsey yet, though. There was a seriously boring, dysfunctional romance-like subthread that I could have done without. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benchpress | 6/5/2013

    " This was such a classic "who dunnit" that you cannot like it. I did feel there was a discrepency towards the end, but it was still a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charise | 4/25/2013

    " Could not put this down - I get so into the character and her life. I like that she is independent yet has falws that she is willing to admit to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannie | 1/17/2013

    " Better than her first attempt. Definately will read more. I like Kinsey, who also seemed to grow a little herself. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peggy | 10/16/2012

    " I am having a hard time getting into her books. They are too slow for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benjamin | 6/25/2012

    " A little predictable, but an enjoyable mystery novel. The ending was telegraphed fairly early, but I can see why people enjoy these stories. "

    " Entertaining and a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linzay | 11/30/2011

    " I loved this one so much because I figured out whodunnit almost right away. I kept reading and then, what about the dental records!?? It turns out, I was right, anyway. I'm not bragging, this never happens. I love Kinsey, I'm going to try to read this series in order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jannene | 6/5/2011

    " This was another good listen in this series. I like the narrator as well. It was a good plot and I really liked the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 5/21/2011

    " As poorly written as the first in the series, but with way too much foreshadowing. The "mystery" was obvious from the beginning of the book and I only finished it to see if I was wrong. I wasn't, and I don't believe I'll be reading any more of Sue Grafton's work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ardie | 5/7/2011

    " Another jaunt. Light easy read. "

    " Masih sama seperti seri sblmnya, malah lebih tertebak lagi jln ceritanya. Kayaknya mau dibikin tradisi neegh, tiap akhir novel, si Kinsey masuk rs mulu. ^_^ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 4/4/2011

    " Another good one. Keeps m e reading!!!!! Hard to put down.... "

    " Easy read - nice little twist at the end I didn't see coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresafic | 3/27/2011

    " The book was ok. A very fast read. The person who hired her and her husband might have made for an interesting side story, but they felt like nothing but a red herring. They were dropped in the middle of the story and then forgotten with the sole purpose seemingly to make them suspects. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thom | 3/27/2011

    " Ok, but liked "A" better, lets see what the rest of the alphabet has to offer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 3/19/2011

    " I liked this one in the series more than the first. It had some good thrills, filled with great characters and was a quick read I finished in one day, can't wait to read more in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 3/4/2011

    " Totally different than her first book but just as great. I figured out who was the killer but didn't realize who they actually were. Can't wait to start "C". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/24/2011

    " A very compelling tale of missing persons, burglary, murder and investigation. Grafton's heroine is genuine, flawed, courageous, and relatable. This series is a must-read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anthony | 2/21/2011

    " I think it's time to end this series for me "

    " Didn't quite figure this one out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 2/9/2011

    " Much better than the first. I am going on the "C. "
