Kinsey’s skills are about to be sorely tested. She is about to meet her duplicitous match in a couple of world-class prevaricators who quite literally take her for the ride of her life.

L Is for Lawless: Call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest novel with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as bad girl,  quick-witted and quicksilvery, smart-mouthed and smart-alecky, poking her nose into everyone’s dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in an Our Gang comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance.

    " My favorite Kinsey Milhone novel...You can always count on Sue Grafton for a good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martina | 2/15/2014

    " it was quite a good read considering that i started with low expectations. (i've never read any other book in the series). i loved the characters in the first part of the book but a more elaborate ending would have been satisfying. still it was a perfect cover for a slow afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/11/2014

    " Book #136 for the 2010 52 Books in 52 Week Ravelry Challenge. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 2/1/2014

    " I don't know whether I've read too many of Sue Grafton's books, or if this one was just worse than the rest. I found this to be very slow and tedious. I felt like Grafton was dragging the story out just because she could. Gonna be a while before I try another one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Toronto1 | 1/21/2014

    " (one review for series) ***** for the first book because I like the series enough to last till about R, now want more to find new authors, and finish another year. The rest get 3-4* because I cannot remember my favorites. I like strong, brave females who make choices and deal with consequences successfully. I like mysteries. I like funny eccentric, her odd sandwich and cute old landlord choices. Southern California feels warm and dry on a long cold Canadian winter. She always seems to go alone in the dark to meet the bad guy and get shot at the end (no,no), but why mess with success? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darcy | 1/20/2014

    " This one was full of bumbling fools. The people involved were all idiots, including Kinsey. The one highlight of the book was where Kinsey told off her cousin, too bad she couldn't hold to it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 ReneeB | 1/20/2014

    " I just could not get into this book. Some of her storylines seem far fetched. Could nort finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ginger | 1/17/2014

    " L is for Loser ;-) I love Kinsey Millhone's adventures, but this one was completely unfulfilling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Correen | 12/26/2013

    " Kinsey gets a call from her cousin asking Kinsey to do a project. It turns out to be a story about a set of brothers who dislike each other. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Beese | 12/23/2013

    " What a fun series to read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty Isaac | 12/13/2013

    " Sue Grafton is a great writer, but I lose interest in her books simply because they are all too much alike. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 12/4/2013

    " One of her quirky books, fast-paced plot and anti-climactic ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia | 12/3/2013

    " This is another great novel in the Kinsey Millhone mystery series - very enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 6/20/2013

    " I finally found "L"! And I must say...it was worth the search--one of Grafton's best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/6/2012

    " Kinsey Milhone is a fun and spunky PI heroine. The alphabet series is great because it takes place starting in 1982. PI work seems terribly rudimentary before cellphones, the internet and other modern technology. References to gabardine suits and Chardonnay are greatly appreciated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna Anderson | 11/20/2012

    " I would say this is the only one so far that I did not really like "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharal Hunter | 11/17/2012

    " Very good story; this one features Kinsey doing a favor for free that takes her on a wild chase looking for money hidden from a 40+ year old bank heist. The intricate plot makes it challenging to figure out who Kinsey can trust. The ending came as a surprise... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 9/19/2012

    " Sitting down with a Sue Grafton book for me is like eating comfort food on a beautiful summer day. Couldn't get any better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki Daniel | 6/19/2012

    " This might be the most boring of the series thus far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dmehringer | 3/30/2012

    " I figured it out early, but still entertaining "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Davies | 10/23/2011

    " Every way Kinsey turns seems to open another page from her unlnown past. What is true, where is this going, and and we have a fast paced story please let something good happen to Kinsey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Hanson | 10/11/2011

    " I love this series, but this one had a slow start for me. I actually started it three times, which hardly ever happens. Not my favorite Kinsey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Boneist | 9/6/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as previous ones, though I'd be hard pressed to say why. The ending was a little abrupt too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Petula Darling | 8/28/2011

    " Definitely not the best Kinsey mystery, but still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 7/8/2011

    " Lawless is not what you think it would be. This one was fun and full of interesting characters. "

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

    " Moving right along . . . and that's what Kinsey is doing! Sue is nearing the half-way point of the alphabet! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roy | 5/23/2011

    " I didn't like this one as much as others in the series. I found the story a bit too simple. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lawn | 5/15/2011

    " i can't get enough of kinsey!
    bravo sue! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 5/2/2011

    " This is a great addition to the series! I couldn't put it down. A seemingly simple case quickly becomes complicated, with many twists and turns. Good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 4/11/2011

    " Another very entertaining novel which Kinsey Millhone unravels with great success. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 4/2/2011

    " Kinsey is at it again. Mysterious key and names to track down. Lovely Sunday afternoon read. I figured this one out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luisa | 3/15/2011

    " Good suspense element, and Kinsey Milhone is entertaining as usual. The way she kept getting out-conned was sort of annoying, and the ending was a little random, but it was a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Readstoomuch | 3/11/2011

    " I vow each time I finish one of these books . . . that I will take a break and read something on my bedside table stash. Well, here I am reading book #12! Can't put these down!!!

    edited to say . . . finished it . . . love it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/7/2011

    " This was a quick read! Love Kinsey Millhone and her great PI work. Always an adventure! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/21/2011

    " Kinsey agrees to "just talk" to heirs trying to prove that their dead relative was in military service and that they are entitled to burial benefits for him. But things were not what they seemed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 1/25/2011

    " Another good Kinsey Millhone mystery. This was unlike her others, in that Kinsey was an observer of a lot of the action instead of the main protagonist. About a convict, and his daughter, and his mother, and a "buried treasure". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thenerdmom | 12/31/2010

    " I read all the books in this series. They are nothing earth-shattering and after reading a few, you can see the formula. But I like the Kinsey character and they are easy and fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curlyhair | 12/18/2010

    " Not my favourite story of the series "
