Summary:

When Laurence Fife was murdered, few mourned his passing. Plenty of people had reason to want him dead. But the police thought his wife Nikki - with motive, access and opportunity - was the #1 suspect. The jury thought so too.

Eight years later and out on parole, Nikki hires Kinsey Millhone, a gutsy P.I., to find the real killer. The trail is cold but Kinsey finds a lead. It brings her face-to-face with the murderer!

This is the first in the popular series featuring California investigator Kinsey Millhone. She's 32, twice divorced, no kids, an ex-cop who likes her work... and who works strictly alone!


From the Compact Disc edition.

    I love this story Sue Grafton is the best.

  • Marion Threadcraft

    Disappointed. Crude and explicit language throughout. Mystery was intriguing but the language a hindrance.

    This is the first one - I love all of them. Waiting "patiently" for U is for Undertow

    This was my first Sue Grafton book and even though it was a little predicatable and far fetched, it provided the mind numbing entertainment I was looking for. Didn't want to listen to something that made me "think" and this book fit exactly what I was looking for. Good enough for me to put the next one on my list.

    This abridged version is ridiculously short! If there are unabridged versions available (which there are for this book-just not in CD), they should be provided for us to rent. This was a waste.

    I need an alibi for when I was listening to this - as it was utterly forgettable. Not bad, just spectacularly unremarkable.

    I'm not sure if it was because this was the abridged version or if this was simply a poor effort to put something on the stand. About as much depth as a superbowl commercial.

    Unfortunately, they don't have these in the unabridged versions on audio! GET WITH IT! Those of us who absolutely can't live without Kinsey Millhone, are out here BEGGING for MORE! What a great listen, and the narrator is the best. A friend loaned me one...I don't even remember which one now, but I became a Kinsey fan right then and there. I have begun with the first one, and intend to work my way down through them all, including the one I've already heard, but will gladly hear again. Sue Grafton is GREAT. A tough, indomitable character..that's our Kinsey! Great listen!

    Good job by Sue Grafton once again. Judy Kaye makes the story come alive.

    This was certainly good enough for me to sign up for the "B" book. I will work my way through the alphabet.
