In this rich, complex and gripping tale, Kinsey Millhone's grit is tested to its utmost as the private detective unearths the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal--and, in the process, comes face-to-face with the grisly fact of her own mortality. 

"'G' is for guilt and guile, for greed and grief, for the Grim Reaper. And 'G' is for good: very, very good indeed."

Listener Opinions

    " 7 down... easy read, entertaining enoug "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 2/6/2014

    " It's been a long time since I've read a Kinsey Millhone novel, and I'd forgotten how well written they are. In this installment, Kinsey accepts a job helping a woman find her mother, and when the mother is killed, the mystery deepens. Also, just to complicate things, while she's working on this mystery a hit man is trying to kill her, and in the midst of all this she falls for her bodyguard. I'm looking forward to "H' is for Homicide; the next in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 2/3/2014

    " I like reading these books on my phone, they are easy to read sporadically. I am not sure if it was necessary to introduce Kinsey's long lost family, unless they continue to show up and eventually defrost Kinsey "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie Brian | 1/30/2014

    " I think that Sue Grafton is a very talented writer. This book in particular demonstrates her talents at wordsmithery. Also, I thought that the story line was especially excellent in "G." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/27/2014

    " This was a great mystery. Kinsey is asked to find a elderly mother of a neurotic client. Kinsey also finds out she is being hunted my a psycho hitman. She meets new boyfriend Dietz, a private eye who has been asked to play bodyguard. They work great together: she does what she wants and he mans in out. He's not the best bodyguard in the world because I could figure out how he kept following Kinsey. There is a little too much filler, but I liked the way the story of the mother unfolded. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hayley | 1/10/2014

    " Another excellent addition to this series. Kinsey is strong and determind as usual, but it's interesting to see her get along with the simiar-minded body-guard Dietz - some great clashes along the way there! Also good to see that Kinsey is only human - she ends up with some real, long-lasting physical injuries, and rather than a fake, I-laugh-in-the-face-of-danger attitude, you get some real, believable descriptions of her reactions to the multiple threats on her life. And a great, intruiging mystery to top it all off! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaret | 1/8/2014

    " Another good installment in the Kinsey Millhone series. The mystery in this one was better than most of the others I have read. It was intriguing reading on to see the two mysteries merge in Kinsey's life. The ending was a tad predictable, but it was still worth reading just for fun's sake. "

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

    " The solution was a bit vague otherwise great. Loved Kinsey/dietz interactions "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 1/6/2014

    " I love this series!!!! Kinsey Milhone is awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/5/2014

    " A re-read. Probably my favorite in this long series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward Creter | 12/30/2013

    " Kinsey as always rocks, but sometimes it gets too cliche-ish near the end where Kinsey gets napped and taken by force to an airport and the heroic rescuer/studly boyfriend is made to toss the gun away. Sound familiar? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 8/27/2013

    " Yapalaters have my kind of beach book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 5/7/2013

    " I caught the Bronte reference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deena Scintilla | 1/23/2013

    " Listened to this during a long drive which made the time go by much faster. This may be my favorite of this series so far altho it is also the shortest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lucie Pelletier kempton | 9/11/2012

    " I was not captivated by this at all. It didn't make any sense to me. The chemistry between Dietz and Kinsey is what made me push to finish reading this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 5/14/2012

    " Pretty good. I really like spending some time with Kinsey Milhone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/6/2012

    " I haven't read one of these in many years, but they are still pretty good. I didn't like this one as well as I liked Janet Evanovich mysteries though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will | 3/7/2012

    " I read this after it was mention on UPN's "Reaper" it was a good book. I loved the characters and the well paced story line. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 2/1/2012

    " Typical Grafton story. I would call her a template writer. She is not complex but maintains your interest. "

    " Listened to in the car - better than the commercials on the radio, but wouldn't spend the time to actually read the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Huskey | 5/31/2011

    " Audiobook. Another good, quick story about Kinsey. It's a pleasure to listen to while I am walking with my dog "

    "

  • 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 cindy | 5/4/2011

    " Sudah lama g bc buku misteri, jdnya bc buku ini. Kasusnya cukup apik, cm penceritaannya gaya hollywood bgt. G ada yg istmw, tp lumayanlah, kayak nonton serial detektif di tv. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/28/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 4/18/2011

  • 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. "
