Just after Independence Day in July 1953 Violet Sullivan, a local good time girl living in Serena Station Southern California, drives off in her brand new Chevy and is never seen again. Left behind is her young daughter, Daisy, and Violet's impetuous husband, Foley, who had been persuaded to buy his errant wife the car only days before . . .

Now, thirty-five years later, Daisy wants closure.

Reluctant to open such an old cold case Kinsey Millhone agrees to spend five days investigating, believing at first that Violet simply moved on to pastures new. But very soon it becomes clear that a lot of people shared a past with Violet, a past that some are still desperate to keep hidden. And in a town as close-knit as Serena there aren't many places to hide when things turn vicious

Listener Opinions

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

    " I can never keep track of which of this series I've read - but they're usually enjoyable enough. Certainly good enough to while away a journey or 2. It is strange how old-timey it feels - since Grafton has resolutely maintained her decision to keep things set in 1987 - 24 shorts years ago and it feels approximately as distant as the Victorian era! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanie | 2/10/2014

    " Entertaining as always. Once you're this far into the alphabet, you have to read them all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 2/9/2014

    " I have enjoyed all of these series. Some have been better than others and this definitely was one of the greater ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 2/7/2014

    " Pretty good. I wish the epilogue was longer. The ending was rather abrupt. But in all a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Nissen | 1/29/2014

    " Excellent story - part beautiful history, part suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 1/28/2014

    " I started reading this series over 15 years ago and they have been competently written throughout and while there was a dip in quality around 'P' or so, it is back up to snuff. Kinsey has changed in some ways over time, as you would expect given her aging, but also remained true to her values. Not getting irritating either, which is a risk for this type of series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/24/2014

    " This book had a completely different feel from the other Kinsey Millhone mysteries. Loved the change of pace and vantage point. Great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leanne | 1/19/2014

    " I love all of the books in this series (A-S) as well as all of the Janet Evanovich books (1-13) Both are fun easy reads! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Beth | 1/11/2014

    " The Sue Grafton alphabet books are always a fun, easy read. I've enjoyed each one. "

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

    " An enjoyable series of books. Still not tired of it on book S =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/28/2013

    " Sue Grafton is always 5-star in my book. However, this book goes above and beyond. If you are a fan of "Cold Case" and TV shows like it, this book is a must-read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/18/2013

    " Loved the book, but the ending felt kind of rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 12/18/2013

    " This was like a Cold Case show, the characters jumping back and forth between the past and the present. Clues that old are hard to find but Kinsey triumphs in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judi | 12/7/2013

    " Always like reading Sue Grafton. They seem like they are taking too long, then they go too fast. Always keep me intrigued to the last page... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 tamarack | 10/16/2013

    " well, i've now read sue grafton. phew! done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shari | 8/26/2013

    " I enjoyed this book in the continuing saga of Kinsey Millhone. I liked its traditional who-done-it mystery format. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon | 7/11/2013

    " I'm still reading Sue Grafton because my mother does and she passes them on to me. I read this a few weeks ago, and skimming back over the book to try and write a review, I realize that I remember absolutely nothing about this book. What an impact. So, my advice: don't bother. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 3/7/2013

    " My husband and I tore through this series (A-S)by Sue Grafton and had fun reading them. Extremely light and fun mysteries. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joseph Rowe | 1/13/2013

    " This one never grabbed me. The flashbacks disrupted it and the plot didn't flow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 September | 12/18/2012

    " This was better than the average Kinsey novel. The only weird part was that it didn't have her usual apartment, or most of her normal locations, and I don't think Henry was in it. Maybe he was on vacation. :) Anyhow, it was a good read. A little on the dark side for Grafton, but I enjoyed it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 10/15/2012

    " I listened to this book and could not put it down! One of her better books.....The reader of all Sue Grafton books is excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 7/25/2012

    " Good brain candy for a sick day "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 7/18/2012

    " Still working my way through these books and enjoying them very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra Kelly | 6/11/2012

    " This is the first book I read by the author. I liked the book so much that I got the T book fromt he series today. I'd like to start reading from A, but A was not available. Very easy & intriguing book. I stayed up until 2 am to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Franklin | 5/23/2012

    " I haven't read a Sue Grafton book in a long time, I really enjoyed this one. Actually had my heart racing during a particularly tense scene. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andie | 6/16/2011

    " These are my "fun read" books. When I've read a book thats really good and can't get into a new book I pick up one of Kinsey Millhone books. "

  • 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! "
