He calls himself Alvin Limardo, and the job he has for Kinsey is cut-and-dried: locate a kid who’s done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. Stiffed for the retainer, Kinsey finds out Limardo’s real name is John Daggett…ex-con, ex-liar, ex-alchy, currently dead.

The cops call it an accident but Kinsey differs. Look at his life! A lot of people hated him, from much-abused wives, to drug dealers out big money, to the families of five people he killed driving drunk. In short, Daggett wasn’t popular.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the things that makes Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series so unfailingly entertaining is Millhone’s character. She’s the last one to cultivate eccentricities in the Nero Wolfe manner, and her unsentimental, loner’s-eye view of herself and the world keeps her feet on the ground. But her cases often get messy because she feels things strongly. This happens again, more satisfyingly than ever, in D is for Deadbeat.”

    Detroit News

  • “Kinsey Millhone has the characteristic persistence of the good private eye who won’t be deterred from digging out the truth. With skill, Grafton keeps not only her appealing detective but her readers on the edge to know more.”

    Ms. magazine

    " Grafton again doesn't really disappoint with this volume of the Kinsey Millhone series. Another good story and a nice quick read. It's refreshing sometimes to sit down with a story that just unfolds without too much contemplation and you don't want to put down. I should have seen the twist coming sooner than I did, but still satisfied with the outcome. "

    " I will try one more. If I'm not wow'd I won't continue with the series. There are to many great books to read. "

    " She writes a nice story - not heavy reading usually a couple of small twists - what I would call a relaxing read. Will continue with the series "
