When Kinsey Millhone answers her office door late one night, she lets in more darkness than she realizes. Janice Kepler is a grieving mother who can't let the death of her beautiful daughter Lorna alone. The police agree that Lorna was murdered, but a suspect was never apprehended and the trail is now ten months cold. Kinsey pieces together Lorna's young life: a dull day job a the local water treatment plant spiced by sidelines in prostitution and pornography. She tangles with Lorna's friends: a local late-night DJ; a sweet, funny teenaged hooker; Lorna's sloppy landlord and his exotic wife. But to find out which one, if any, turned killer, Kinsey will have to inhabit a netherworld from which she may never return.

Listener Opinions

    " I wish they would makes these into at series or movies "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ray | 2/13/2014

    " K is past the pinnacle of what made this series great. Having read some later stuff, I think it picks up again. And K was a good-enough read, but not one of the best in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 1/29/2014

    " These "alphabet novels" are nothing short of perfect mystery. Grafton's cleverly crafted characters will stay with you long after you are finished reading the books. Kinsey Milhone, her landord/best friend, Henry and all the others seem so much like real people it is hard to imagine a world without them. I was on the edge of my seat with all the twists and turns, never forseeing what was coming next. I felt that each novel, as Grafton advanced through the alphabet, improved in every way. I would highly recommend the books to anyone who loves a great mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellisse Johnston | 1/25/2014

    " The book was OK but there were far too many loose ends left at the end of the story. It almost felt like the author just got tired of writing the story and ended the book. Not one of her best works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casta | 1/24/2014

    " Interesting story, better than some others, but the Epilogue left all kinds of questions unanswered, and was mostly high-handed philosophizing and moralizing, with little actual content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/17/2014

    " Another good Kinsey Milhone murder mystery. Didn't know who did it till the very end. "

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

    " very good book. i will be reading L pretty soon. I'm going to try to read more of these this year than last year. "

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

    " One of my favorite series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pauline | 1/4/2014

    " As usual a nice easy read that was really enjoyable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly L. | 12/31/2013

    " Funny how we grow up and change. I loved these Alphabet mysteries when I was in my early twenties. I really didn't enjoy this one now, years later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Thompson | 12/22/2013

    " This is Sue Grafton's best book so far. She takes us to the darker side of life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Midori | 12/20/2013

    " I enjoyed it very much. I like the ending with mysterious fiance have taken the killer away. Good story telling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kylene Nickerson | 11/8/2013

    " Just finished this book. As usual it was a good and easy read. I did NOT figure out who done it this time. THanks again for sharing with me. I am thoroughly enjoying this series of books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyrie | 7/29/2013

    " I didn't like this one as well as her other books. Kinsey goes off a bit too far on her own tangents in solving an unsolved murder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 5/11/2013

    " As usual, Sue Grafton, writes a good story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 1/8/2013

    " Live Kinsey Milhone.....will read every one. A fun read with characters you met in the beginning of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Long | 10/27/2012

    " Each book gets better for me in this series. I found this one to be quite engaging! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy Spicer | 7/21/2012

    " Good; didn't care for the ending, it just dropped off without any real closure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol MacInnis | 4/16/2012

    " This series is a wonderful escape into mystery and getting to know our Kinsey Millhone's family drama. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/30/2012

    " I really like these books. This series is fun and light! Great leading character. Great for a quick read- beach, plane!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Steck | 1/14/2012

    " Was not very impressed with the ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 12/24/2011

    " Another good read in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 6/8/2011

    " Except for the a little puzzling ending, this was a corker of another read. The procedural parts to the homicide investigation were in-depth and added to the appeal. Kinsey a tough-minded private eye with a sardonic wit makes for a sturdy protagonist throughout the alphabet series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 5/24/2011

    " I have really enjoyed this whole series. This book was no exception. Sue Grafton has a writing style that just grabs and spins me in her web. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margiek2000 | 5/24/2011

    " "U" could be for unexpected, too. Imagine my surprise when Sue called and asked if she could use our names in this book. No kidding - page 50! I love wondering what the title of the next book will be. I bet Kinsey could figure it out!! Ready for the next one!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/23/2011

    " For some reason, this just wasn't what I expected from Grafton and I have to admit that the mystery style in this one didn't end as interestingly as I'd hoped... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peggy | 5/23/2011

    " Great plot. Now I am going to have to go back and pick up the books I've missed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 5/22/2011

    " I've enjoyed everyone of Sue Grafton's books. She 'hooks' me on the very first page and everything gets put aside until I've finished the book. Now I can't wait for her next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tegan | 5/18/2011

    " one of my favorites in this series! seemless transitions from present day to the past and a very entertaining storyline! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/14/2011

    " Sue Grafton gets better and better...so good every single time! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Agnes | 5/13/2011

    " Usual Kinsey Milhone tale - she gets involved, continues on like a terrier with a rt, and finally prevails. Did enjoy learning more about her family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 5/8/2011

    " I liked it. Grafton really does the whole set up well, and keeps you guessing until the end when everything comes together. This one was a bit different with skipping back and forth in time for the different characters, but I still liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evie | 5/6/2011

    " Although it was an entertaining read, I found some aspects pretty hard to believe. For instance, after 20 years, I don't believe that a six year old could remember the face of a person he saw once. Do you remember anything you did when you were six years old with any clarity? I don't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 5/5/2011

    " My guilty pleasure. I LOVE these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pmcdnld2 | 4/28/2011

    " Another in the Kinsey Milhone series-Grafton will soon run out of letters. In this one Kinsey investigates the disappearance of a little girl 20 years ago and deals with her mother's newly found family with some new info on that score. Good mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 4/27/2011

    " Good as always with this series, but the last two books have had a sad edge to them. It also ended rather quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/26/2011

    " I really like this continuing series! "
