The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. The weekend before, he’d bought a stack of cardboard boxes. In one, there was a collection of childhood memorabilia with Kinsey’s name all over it.

Though she’s never been one for personal possessions, curiosity is a powerful force. What she finds among the items is an old undelivered letter to her that will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of her first marriage, the honor of her first husband … and about an old unsolved murder. It will put her life in grave peril.

Through fourteen books, listeners have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone’s past—a morsel here, a dollop there. You know about the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one has remained a blip on the screen. Until now. O Is for Outlaw is a revealing excursion into Kinsey’s past.

    " These Sue Grafton books just keep getting better. In O is for Outlaw we learn a lot more about Kinsey's first husband and Kinsey's past. Kinsey receives a phone call from a man who bought a storage locker and found some things with Kinsey's name on them. Kinsey is curious as to why her ex husband did not pay the storage bill. As she looks into this matter she finds that her ex husband has been shot. Kinsey is forced to confront things she never did 14 years earlier when she walked out on her husband and never looked back. Great book. "

    " I was kind of getting bored during "L" and "M" and "N" but this one pulled me in and kept me interested the whole time. Spoiler alert: the butler did it. "

    " Here it is---the 15th book of this series---and we learn lots about Kinsey's past in this since one of her X-husbands reappears. I liked getting more info of her past and seeing how it fits into her presence. The story kept me guessing and I thought it tied up most of the loose ends neatly. One of my favorite I think in the series. "
