Summary:

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
