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 definitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/4/2014

    " I was disappointed in this one. I usually can't put a Sue Grafton down. I struggled through this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/1/2014

    " Lots of vulgarity. I did like the mystery and how it all fit together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hella Comat | 1/27/2014

    " Sue Grafton's 22nd Kinsey Millhone mystery - this one has two stories being told concurrently that of course connect late in the book. It's about professional shoplifting - who knew there was such a thing? Good one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey | 1/25/2014

    " Another terrific edition in the Kinsey Milhone series. Grafton has created such a great character in Kinsey, I'd follow her story anywhere. That said, if you haven't read any of the others, start with "A is for Alibi" - and carry on =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Memmott | 1/25/2014

    " One of her better alphabet mysteries! It has several points of view, instead of just Kinsey's, and I found it refreshing. Some adult language. "

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

    " This is another great Grafton read with plenty of action. I hate to think that the series will come to an end in just another 4 books. Guess I'll have to go back and read the series from the beginning when that happens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sroberts74austin.rr.com | 1/17/2014

    " Great mystery. Will capture your attention and keep you reading to figure out what happens and how all the many characters' lives will eventually cross paths. Love the private investigator character...very easy to relate too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/4/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/29/2013
