Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone is among the best and most successful of the wave of women private eyes. Grafton has won the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, a Macavity Award from Mystery Readers International, and three Anthony Awards at Bouchercons. An ex-cop, her bread-and-butter work is insurance investigation, but she also works for private clients.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ee cummings

Don't think twice about it ITN - get them all! For some reason I just kinda slid through N and didn't get the satisfaction I normally do with Grafton. I just finished O and am happy to know Grafton is still the great story teller I originally discovered. Now I must convince our library I need to hear the tapes too!

There can be no triumph without loss… no victory without suffering… no freedom without sacrifice… (from TROTK trailer) True words even for today.

Believe it or not after almost 1 year since my last post I finally finished A, B and C... LOL I took the Big book with the 3 novels to my vacation in Puerto Rico. I read while being at the beach, waiting for my cousin to get ready, etc. I took the book with me everywhere I went. I will be starting the D book as soon as I figure out where I put it when it arrived in the mail. Eventually I plan to read... really, read... all the books.

"Q is for Quarry" will be out 10/02. Its based on a real unsolved homicide in Santa Barbara back in 1969.

I got my Nemesis pregnant!

I read P is for Peril, the first Grafton I've read. Very disappointing. I thought the plot was weak and the mystery blueprint was weak. It was another 400 page book with a 100 page story to tell. Do all Grafton books spend so much time describing every little shysical detail surronding the main character, and having nothing to do with the solving of the crime? I know she is a top selling mystery author...is that what really interests people: many, much, beaucoup descriptive detail of physical surroundings and very little story?

Short and unpronouncable ... and proud of it!!!

I don't like her books either, Marcel. I kept having the impression that I was reading a book for young teenagers ...

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

R is for Ricochet: P.I. Kinsey Milhone is hired to babysit a rich man's recently paroled daughter, and is soon taken on a wild ride that leads to a shady world of money laundering and murder.

I just finished R is for Ricochet and I enjoyed it a lot. Some of the descriptive material was a little too long for me, but I just scanned over it, LOL. I really liked her interaction with Reba.

I found that I skipped "Q" so I am going to read that now.

jT is for Trespass is out now. I got it for Christmas, so I'm going to have to catch up!

I've just gotten around to reading Sue Grafton's series with Kinsey Milhone as the central character. I like to read series beginning with the first and reading each one in place as in reading each as it was written, I get a sense of the development of the central characters as well as the development of the author. Kinsey's humorous quips give a bit of relief from the tension Ms. Grafton is so skilled at creating. I've only reached "C is for Corpse" and so far, I like it even more than the first two books. The way the disabilities of the young man are descibed with an eye for the reality of brain injuries and the lingering memory deficits and the emotional swings that persist. These first chapters are truly well-written! Dorothy
