D Is for Deadbeat

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Sue Grafton

Narrated By: Judy Kaye

Date: October 2005

Duration: 3 hours 0 minutes


He calls himself Alvin Limardo, and the job he has for Kinsey is cut-and-dried: locate a kid who's done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. Stiffed for the retainer, Kinsey finds out Limardo's real name is John Daggett...ex-con, ex-liar, ex-alchy, currently dead.

The cops call it an accident but Kinsey differs. Look at his life! A lot of people hated him, from much-abused wives, to drug dealers out big money, to the families of five people he killed driving drunk. In short, Daggett wasn't popular.

    I love Sue Grafton’s writing style and absolutely love Kinsey’s character! Mary Peiffer is perfectly suited to voice the character!

    I really enjoy Sue Grafton's series. It is light and entertaining listening. Judy Kaye is superb at her reading of these books.

  • Lidia

    Another fun Kinsey mystery! These are always interesting and much better than thinking about the traffic I'm sitting in!

  • Joan Robillard

    I was reading the Sue Grafton series faithfully when she started writing it but I got into other hobbies besides reading. So when I started listening to audio books I wanted to go back and review the earlier books in the series and I'm having as much fun listening to the books and I did reading them originally. Kinsey is fun to read about and the mysteries are fun to try to solve.

    If you like this series, you will like this book. I always enjoy a few hours spent listening to the next case Kinsey Millhone is working.

    Great character, a good read! I love Kinsey Millhone who is down to earth and the stories are great.

  • Clara Williams

    I have enjoyed the first alphabet mystries and look forward to hearing the rest. I love Kinsey's take on life and heart. Sue Grafton is a wonderful series author.

    Kinsey is always fun! I enjoy her life as much as I enjoy the mysteries.

  • Audrey Williams

    As usual the author wrote a good mystery. I love these books because they can be completed in a short time and the plot is not so involved you have to go back to remember the characters when you have to stop the CD. I look forward to reading other in the series.
