Summary:

R Is for Ricochet is another thrilling installment in Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series.

Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn’t there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institute for Women. Now, at 32, she is about to be paroled, having served 22 months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers.

It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the rules of her parole. Maybe all of a week's work. Nothing untoward—the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good. But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than 24 hours when one of her old crowd comes circling around.

Readers have come to expect the unexpected from Sue Grafton, and R Is for Ricochet is no exception. In it, a complex and clever money-laundering scheme is just a cover for a novel that is all about love: love gone wrong, love betrayed, love denied. And love avenged. For Reba Lafferty, its moral is clear: Sometimes what you hand out in life comes back to bite you in the ass. Sometimes the good guys win, even when they lose.

    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.

  • Judi Vanarsdal

    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.

  • Cheryl G.

    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.
