Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie  case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last  seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her  condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But  somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey's case  goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is  torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers,  the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her  bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey's clues  begin to form a capital M -- not for missing, but  for murder: and plenty of it.

Winner of the 1985  Private Eye Writers of America Shamus Award and the  1985 Anthony Award for Best Novel.

    I love all the alphabet mysteries by Sue Grafton and Judy Kaye is a fantasic narrator, she keeps you in suspense!

    If you like a good murder mystery, you can not go wrong with a Sue Grafton. Not one of her best, but still enjoyable.

  • Betsy

    This was a good book. It made you want to hate Trevor because first he is like a stalker, but then you fall in love with him.

  • Lisa

    Love these books. Can't get enough of the reader. She makes Kinsey come alive.

  • Ettie Goldy

    This is a very well written, well read book. The story took several twists and turns so it was not predictable. Well worth the time to listen to.

  • Amanda Runnels

    This is not my favorite Grafton book, but it was still fun to listen to. Just not all that interesting.

  • Michael Hilliard

    Sue Grafton does it again. Great book have listened to three of her books and all excede expectations.

    I felt this book was one of Sue Grafton's more fun Kinzey books. However, it was also slightly more predictable. As always, however, I enjoyed the story and stayed very entertained on my commute.

  • Nancy Smithson

    This was the first time I've read Sue Grafton. She was entertaining - the only thing I can say is it was too short. Abr. version - I am looking forward to the rest.

    Kinsey is relentless in this one. I love her character. This was a puzzle to the end. I really look forward to hearing the rest of the alphabet series.
