Hard to put down this book! The writing gets better with each book, and the storyline in this one is based on a real story. There are twists and turns that you don't anticipate, even if you've read the other books in this series and are familiar with her writing style.

This was a very good book. The story takes many twists and turns as the PI Kinsey Millhone is asked to help find out who the teenager Jane Doe was that was stabbed and dumped in a quarry and never identified.

This book was inspired by a real case in Santa Barbara, California.
Very easy and enjoyable reading on many levels. The main character Kinsey is funny, and quirky. She tells you about her life as she works on her case.

Decent installment that is actually based on a true unsolved crime. I enjoyed the sparring between Lt. Doyle and Detective Olyphant. They remind me of "The Odd Couple."

Spunky and fun. Back in 1969, many young people were hitting the road and disappearing. Many are killed. 18 years later a Jane Doe appeared and Kate Millihone is called for help.

I have only begun on Grafton's series about Kinsey Millhone and this wasn't a good one, by page 70 it was so boring I couldn't stay focused on the pages, she just describes everything under the sun and then the sun too.

By 50 pages the story should be getting a grip on you and keeping you ready to sit on the edge of your chair waiting for the thiller to get better but this one just doesn't even move at a good rate---just a slow rate.

Not giving up on her series because I've read some good reviews about them but this one is just boring.

I have yet to meet a Kinsey "Alphabet" book that I didn't like. I recommend starting at the beginning and working your way through. If you enjoy a good mystery with a bit of thrill that makes you think, then you'll love this series.
