Floral Beach wasn’t much of a town: six streets long and three deep, its only notable feature a strip of sand fronting the Pacific. It was on that sandy beach seventeen years ago that the strangled body of Jean Timberlake had been found.

The people of floral Beach didn’t pay a whole lot of mind to past history, especially when Bailey Fowler, the self-confessed killer, had been properly processed and convicted. They weren’t even unduly concerned when, a year after the murder, Fowler walked away from the men’s prison at San Luis Obispo, never to be seen again. After all, everyone knew Jean had been a wild kid.

And then, by sheer fluke, the cops stumbled on Bailey Fowler. And a case seventeen years dead came murderously to life again.

For Royce Fowler, old and sick with not much time left, his son’s reappearance was the chance to heal an old wound. For Kinsey Millhone, the case was a long shot, but she agreed to take it on. She couldn’t know then it would lead her to probe the passions buried just below the surface of family relations, where old wounds fester and the most cherished emotions become warped until they fuse into deadly, soul-destroying time bombs.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mishka | 2/4/2014

    " Really enjoyed this one too....the early books are quite good. Have to get the next one reserved at the library... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 1/30/2014

    " I'm starting to wonder if I even read these before! Kinsey meets some really twisted individuals. I don't even remember any of this. Maybe it's been more than 15 years.... Makes it a lot of fun though. Since she's all the way to "T," I have a long way to go. Although I read "T" just last year, darn it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/29/2014

    " Another out of order book Mrs. KB. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/23/2014

    " Similar themes as some others--the long ago murder and simmering resentments, the issue of father figure--but still an original and good read. It takes Millhone out of Santa Barbara and into a beach community for a good change of pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kassieuiuchotmail.com | 1/22/2014

    " I've been rolling through this series. While they're all entertaining, F is for Fugitive is the best so far. There was a but more of a plot and better character development here and even a touch of suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Huskey | 1/20/2014

    " Nice quick books to listen to on my MP3 player. Entertaining series. I enjoy the series and I enjoyed this particular book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 RunRachelRun | 1/7/2014

    " Um, nope, can't tell you a thing about it, other than I read it and enjoyed the process of doing so... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ubalstecha | 1/3/2014

    " Solid entry in the Kinsey Milhone, with an ending that while not completely predicable, is one you still see coming. But it is Kinsey that keeps you coming back for more. Her voice is like yours, her reaction to the actions of others is also completely like yours. This series is kind of awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 12/31/2013

    " I love Sue Grafton's books. This one was great. Intrigue, adventure , humor & I could hardly wait to get to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alaina Patterson | 12/6/2013

    " For the full review (and to see how Alaina may have taken vacation in the murder town), follow the link to That's What She Read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 9/9/2013

    " At first I thought Kinsey Milhone was a breath of fresh air, but as the alphabet went on, the air got more stale. A light mystery read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimz Zahour | 8/18/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarra | 8/30/2012

    " Originally read in the mid- to late-1990s. Enjoyed until the reveal of the villain, at which point there was copious eye-rolling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KrisAnne | 8/9/2012

    " I know we are not talking great literature here, but these Sue Grafton mysteries are like junk food for me. Love 'em. "

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadia | 5/15/2011

    " Perfect rainy day reading. Easy reading mystery thriller. Some weeks you don't want to delve into a pulitzer, but just want to get lost in a good story. This is that kind of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronald | 4/15/2011

    " I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. The characters were interesting and many had unique personalities. I did manage to guess whom the killer was before the detective. A little more time on the post ending wrap up would have been nice, but otherwise the ending was entertaining. "
