A woman with a murky past who kills herself—or was it murder? A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt who thinks he can beat the system. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring working for the Mob, racking up millions from stolen goods. A wandering husband, rich and ruthless. A dirty cop so entrenched on the force he is immune to exposure. A sinister gangster, conscienceless and brutal. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers, which may be worse than the pain of his loss. A private detective, Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose. And an elegant and powerful businessman whose dealings are defnitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web. V: Victim. Violence. Vengeance. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 2/11/2014

    " Love this series. My only complaint is waiting for the next one to come out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 1/31/2014

    " This book was good except there was some bad language. "

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

    " This installment was a bit of a departure from previous books in terms of style. Still good, but maybe not as good as previous outings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley Blane | 1/28/2014

    " I have read all of Sue Grafton's alphabet series and rate this as her best ever yet! Mystery, violence, romance, this book has it all. A gangster one couldn't help liking, crooks one couldn't help sympathising with and villains to hate. All served up with the usual cast of resident characters who ooze with personality. Sue Grafton's books just get better and better, unlike some authors who clearly write under pressure after the first dozen or so bestsellers. Well recommended - and you don't need to start her series from the beginning - all the books stand alone. "

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

    " I have read all of her books and loved them, easy reading and it's nice to visit familiar characters again. At times I found some of the detail redundant, either way I still loved the book and the the story line. I'm looking forward to the next 4 books and wondering what 'Z' will be titled???? Hmmm...'Zodiac', Zinfandel', 'Zig Zag'...Hmmm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Blair | 1/14/2014

    " I love Kinsey and the series. She keeps them fresh and I look forward to the next one, although we 're closing in on Z. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lee Miller | 1/12/2014

    " One of the most wonderful things about this series is how each book is better than the one before. Sue Grafton is one of our best writers working today, and this multi-layered, complicated, and immensely entertaining book is a tribute to her talent and growth as a writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 R.E. Sheahan | 1/10/2014

    " I wasn't sure I would like the changes in style, using more than just Kinsey's point of view. But it was good. Just took some getting used to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/9/2014

    " Definitely not the best in the series. I usually enjoy these books as a fun easy read, but found I had to force myself through parts of this one. I give it 3 stars because I still enjoy Rosie's Hungarian food. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/8/2014

    " Another Kinsey Millhone case. Shoplifting nationwide theft ring headed by gangster with a heart of gold. Romance , but not for Kinsey, of course; black eyes for Kinsey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 1/5/2014

    " I've read her entire series and haven't tired of them!!! Usually a series this long gets boring, or too repetative, but Ms. Grafton does a good job of keeping me entertained. Always love her eclectic characters, and this time was no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb Kirchofer | 1/2/2014

    " Very goog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 12/25/2013

    " As usual, I enjoyed this Kinsey Milhone mystery. A bit lighter in tone, it kept me interested even if I didn't truly bite my nails. Neighbor Henry was missing in this one ... caring for his ailing sister, and I missed him. But overall, worth waiting for on the library rota. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 12/12/2013

    " Sue Grafton can't write fast enough for me. I wait eagerly for the next novel. "
