Private investigator Kinsey Millhone is back, sassy and self-reliant as ever. Visiting a small town in the Sierras, Kinsey aids a recent widow, Selma Newquist, who believes that her detective husband did not die of a heart attack, as reported, but from foul play. Kinsey sifts through the paper trail Tom Newquist left behind, trying to discover what he was investigating before he died.

Kinsey is about to call it quits when she is severely beaten in her motel room. Spurred to probe further, she soon unearths clues regarding a long-unsolved murder that may or may not implicate the colleagues of Tom Newquist. Wry and intelligent, Kinsey Millhone solves the case—and Sue Grafton delivers the goods.

    " I wrote about N is for Noose here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nova | 2/6/2014

    " A bit weird reading about a private investigator who uses pay phones and a typewriter because the stories are set in the 80s; enjoyable story though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loren | 2/1/2014

    " I try to intersperse longer novels with a fun trashy paperback. And I don't mean 'trash' in a bad way- this is classic Kinsey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 1/29/2014

    " Another in the Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton. Although I had read this years ago, I read it again recently. I didn't remember enough of it, so I guess it didn't stick with me very well. The ending was pretty familiar, though... very abrupt. "

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

    " I love that Kinsey stayed with Dietz in the beginning of this book to help him from his surgery. I really like them as a "couple". I noticed that when Kinsey is somewhere working on a case she does not do her runs. I think she should because they help clear her mind and put the pieces together faster. Poor Kinsey goes to the hospital, again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/24/2014

    " Book #155 for the 2010 52 Books in 52 Week Ravelry Challenge. "

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

    " I'd give this a 2.5 if I could. Good story, but too predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 1/15/2014

    " 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 Gretchen | 1/8/2014

    " Kinsey is a likable heroine and this series of A to ? are fun and easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 1/7/2014

    " Still a huge fan of Kinsey Millhone, private investigator. I never get bored with her antics....This time she spends most of the book away from home in Nota Lake, California employed by a widow who wants to know why her husband who died of a heart attack had been so troubled before he died. "

    " This is a great series of books!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anissa Rajala | 12/23/2013

    " Not bad. I've read better, but it was an interesting twist at the end which I liked. Worth the read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/20/2013

    " Kinsey Millhone 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 Dave Freas | 12/14/2013

    " This was the first Grafton book that disappointed me. It wasn't up to the standard set by earlier ones in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Justin Katz | 12/14/2013

    " I give it credit for being different from the others, but I don't know that different here was better. Maybe it was because I was reading the book out loud and I had allergies the past few weeks, but this book and all 289 pages actually seemed to drag on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kricket | 12/14/2013

    " in which kinsey travels to the hick town of nota lake to find out why selma newquist's husband tom was so upset before he died. kinsey's fingers get dislocated, which is disgusting. seems that her hair has gone back to it's moplike state. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg Hannah | 11/12/2013

    " This is my third or so reading. Not the best one of the series, mostly because of the weak ending. But I like Kinsey in this one--she's very real. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nonie | 8/3/2013

    " Listened to the abridged audio book and while I've always enjoyed reading Sue Grafton mysteries, it's a kind that I'd rather do abridged. "

    " Kinsey is hired to find out what was on the mind of a man who died of a heart attack out in the middle of a road late at night. It's an interesting mystery, but I felt it was a step back from the flow of the books recently. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan Slack | 4/8/2013

    " Entertaining, but build up was too long--unnecessary details need to be cut. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy DeMoville | 3/4/2013

    " I skipped pages.. could pick up right where she had been.. lots of detail about nothing... liked the author...but so slow writing ..skipped to last chpater..told the mystery..and wrapped up the whole book.. borrowed from Janice "

    " A bit of a slow go for Sue Grafton. Other books of hers have been much more interesting. If you like Grafton, then I'd say read it. "
