R is for Ricochet

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Sue Grafton

Narrated By: Judy Kaye

Duration: 5 hours 52 minutes


From the bestselling author of the Alphabet mystery series comes the newest installation: R IS FOR RICOCHET. Reba Lafferty, abandoned by her rebellious mother when she was an infant, is the only child of a rich man already in his 50s when Reba is born. Adored and thoroughly spoiled by her father, she is 32 years old and about to be released with probation from the California Institute for Women, having served less than half of her four-year sentence for embezzlement. Wanting her to 'stay straight' - away from drugs, drink, and gambling - her father, Nord Lafferty wants her to stay at home. For Kinsey it seems an easy enough assignment: babysit the seemingly remorseful and friendly Reba for a week, while earning good money. But no less than 24 hours after Reba's release, one of her crowd stops by.

    Great story and narrator. Kinsey Milhone is a wonderful character and is one of my favorites of all. These stories are fun, realistic and interesting. I love the different characters. You feel like you know (or would like to know) these people. Of course, as a Southern Californian, I recognize all the locations (even though some of the obvious names of them are changed)!

    Great! just like all of hers... highly recommend all of these in series... nothing too heavy --just good listening --fun to listen to

    The book was very entertaining but I have no idea what the title of the book had to do with the content of the book. The narrator did a good job bringing the characters to life. Although she did sound a lot like Ellen DeGeneres.

    Typical Sue Grafton (I love her books) where Kinsey is attempting to help someone who doesn't appreciate her efforts. This book ends on a more positive note than some of Grafton's other novels and is a bit more light-hearted. An enjoyable read.

    Very intertaning. Love all her books. Fun to read.

  • Annabel Henley

    This is pure Sue Grafton. Once again she delivers a great mystery with all of the requisite twists and turns. Her dry witted humor is interspersed throughout making for a great listen.

    This is another of her great "letter mysteries." I enjoy the way they are written, and the way they are read. Keeps you listening!!!! Even though you feel you know how it is going to turn out, you listen - as there ae always subtleties and the unexpected.

    A very good book by Sue Grafton. Still one of the best writers of mystery and suspense.
