tres•pass 'tres-p  s n: a transgression of law involving one’s obligations to God or to one’s neighbor; a violation of moral law; an offense; a sin –Webster’s New International Dictionary (second edition, unabridged)

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton’s T is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the perspective of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private care-giving  jobs. The true horror of this novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene.

T is for Trespass–dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, and the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependenttargets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric. Grafton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of the horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 2/13/2014

    " I have been reading this series for many years, and some of the later books have not been as good as the early ones; but in this one Ms. Grafton and Kinsey Milhone are back in good form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JoAnn | 2/11/2014

    " Didn't think it was her best, but always enjoy Kinsey M. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope | 2/10/2014

    " See my review on Sue Grafton's "A is for Alibi" for info on what I think of this series. "

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

    " I stopped reading the Millhone series about 12 years ago, back when it was at H or I. I picked this one up on a whim, and the characters and style came swimming back to me, but fresh from the break. Fun for summer reading! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/25/2014

    " Probably the best Grafton one yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pammy | 1/25/2014

    " I hadn't read one of Grafton's ABC mysteries for quite a while and enjoyed getting caught up with the series! I sometimes get messed up by the stories being based in the 1980's...I will often yell at Millhone: "Hey, goof-ball...use your cell phone!!!" duh! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heywu | 1/23/2014

    " I enjoy the Kinsey Millhone Series. A very easy summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 1/20/2014

    " Kinder, gentler crime fiction? In the mode of Barbara Vine/Ruth Rendall it the story thats king in this book. No gun play, car chases or body count until the last 30 of its almost 400 pages. And these seem almost incidental. The one for sure death is almost a cartoonish afterthought. I'm not complainig because I love a good story and Grafton has her female P.I. outsmart an equaly smart but deviant elder caregiver. Not the usual subject for a crime novel but increasingly famliar and gripping as the tale evolves. Though sometimes long on descriptions of the California place settings and the constant references to the "cold"...knowing she means 50 degrees as I trundle through the 20s each day...still the events unfold swiftly and the pages kept turning. Not an overly complicated plot but just the tonic to take along for the plane ride out of the frozen tundra that is the Northeast nowadays.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/19/2014

    " Sue Grafton books are what I think of as light enjoyable entertainment and I feel confident, that it was her intent. She hits the mark with this one also. She always manages to have just the right amount of humor and suspense. I recommend T is for Trespass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/6/2014

    " While Kinsey investigates a car accident, which requires her to track down an elusive witness, she becomes increasingly concerned about her elderly neighbor, who has a new caregiver following an injury. In parallel, caregiver Solana Rojas tells her story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 1/1/2014

    " Sue, I love Kinsey. But why did you set these in the 80s? They really seem dated now. Otherwise, a cracking good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 12/9/2013

    " It was about a woman who stole the identity for a home health care nurse and moved in on Kinseys elderly neighbor and needed to kill Kinsey to avoid detection "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 11/14/2013

    " I love the whole series but this was my least favorite so far. A bit too gruesome for my liking! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 11/8/2013

    " Favoured author, but starting to find her pace of story slowing down. Might leave her for a while. That said, topical and thought provoking theme. Would prefer her to re-engage in some personal relationships again... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kw | 11/3/2013

    " One of the best, if not the best, in this series. Identity theft is scary, and people are not always who they say they are! I really enjoyed this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mona | 10/20/2013

    " This is the first book I read by this author because I found the storyline interesting and I enjoyed it. I like her writing style and will definitely read more of her books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 R*beth*h Hart | 10/7/2012

    " I don't know what it is about these books that everyone likes. I got 4 chapters into it and could not go on, have no desire to make myself suffer through it. Would rather reread books I have already finished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 9/16/2012

    " This was one of the best Kinsey books in a while. The villain is truly evil. The subject is, unfortunately, truly believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simone | 9/10/2012

    " I have become a fan of Sue Grafton with this book. I want to read the whole alphabet now. I'm trying to begin reading more mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 5/15/2012

    " Ok book. Not as funny as I had hoped but still ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 4/15/2012

    " Listening to this book. A good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ryan Mishap | 3/28/2012

    " Avoid. Disappointing. No mystery, just a "suspense" thing--will she catch the culprit--who we learn about almost immediately--or not. Reads like a public service announcement about elder abuse, doesn't read that well, and there's no freakin' mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 2/5/2012

    " The standard formula with emphasis on identity theft, aging etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 10/18/2011

    " Pretty good - elder abuse, traffic accident scams and a pedophile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsten | 10/12/2011

    " Another awesome Kinsey Milhone story! I really felt the danger in this one, too. Rather than trying to solve a murder this time, it was more like Kinsey was trying to prevent one! Hard to put down. I enjoyed it thoroughly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bart229 | 6/30/2011

    " The Kinsey Milhone books are almost all good and this is no exception. However, the book moves pretty slow at times, act 2 in particular. Good news is the payoff is worth the wait. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 6/4/2011

    " I love Kinsey Millhone no matter what. This book dealt with elder abuse and identity theft --- both current unnerving problems. Another good one. Waiting for U. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roy | 6/2/2011

    " Another good Kinsey Millhone mystery - a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janine | 6/1/2011

    " Sue Grafton tells a good story . . . but why fill it in with whether Kinsey turns left or right, whether she puts her keys in her pocket or her purse, and which side she parks her hair on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 5/31/2011

    " I love the way she always ties up the loose ends in her books. Another great murder mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Syd | 5/31/2011

    " Public Library Adult Book Club read for April

    Love Sue Grafton. Love Kinsey Millhone. Love the series.

    It's not often the Adult Book Club chooses a book within my comfort zone.

    It's what I like, it's what I read, amen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dbroder74 | 5/30/2011

    " kidnap and murder of a 4 year girl in 1967 and strange guy who thinks he saw the body being buried 21 years ago "

  • 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! seamless transitions from present day to the past and a very entertaining storyline! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 5/17/2011

    " Kinsay Milhone is not as entertaining as she used to be. I missed the light tone/occasional humor and comfy characters of the previous novels in this series. This was a good mystery, although the threads of the story seemed to have trouble joining into a strong rope at times. "

  • 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 Alison | 5/8/2011

    " Kinsey's at it again, that's all I can say without giving anything away. "

  • 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. "
