Summary:

"There are few writers able to sustain the solid mixture of detection, narrative energy and cultural observations that one finds in Grafton." -- Washington Post Book World

In N is for Noose, Kinsey Millhone is about to put herself in the gravest jeopardy of her career as she becomes the target, and an entire town seems in for the kill.

When Tom Newquist, a tough, honest, and respected detective in the Nota Lake sheriff's office died suddenly, the townsfolk were not surprised: Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That, plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign.

Newquist's widow didn't doubt the coroner's report. But Selma couldn't accept not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life -- and the only way she'd get closure was if she found out what it was that had made him prowl restlessly at night, that had him brooding constantly.

Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless -- like looking for a needle in a haystack. instead, she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own.

    I love every one of Sue Grafton's Alphabet Mystery books. You can never go wrong with any of them. They are always read by the same person which helps to lend continuity to the series. Always entertaining. I found this one to be one of my favorites but will likley say that about all of them. Highly recommend the entire series

    another great 'read' by Sue Grafton. She keeps your attention. It is a 'clean' book you can listen to with the whole family. Great for a car trip or just the daily commute.
