About this deal

F is for Fugitive was the first, entering at number 10 on the paperback list; by 1995 "L" is for Lawless entered the best seller list at number one followed by ten more in the series. But, I'm also curious if the books will morph through the years as the series was written to reflect the changes in the real world as they happened, or if it will stay set in the 1980's.

Either way, I’ll need the tweezers, and there’ll be more poking and prodding and I’m probably not going to like that much either. It was the silly season and a Monday at that, and Kinsey Millhone was bogged down in a preliminary report on a fire claim. using plenty of 'shoe leather' and interviewing all of the people in Laurence Fife and Libby Glass's life at the time of their murders.And yeah I figured I would use improper grammar and discreetly reference KINSEY AND ME: STORIES which I haven’t yet read and I may never get to based on my current TBR shelf and future book endeavors. The writing style puts in enjoyable humor in serious situations, but it's mainly kept to the point and focused on the story at hand. The Lying Game (2003) – a Kinsey Millhone short story which appeared in the September 2003 special 40th anniversary Lands' End catalogue. The book is narrated by Kinsey Millhone herself and opens with a perfect intrpoduction of who she is. After graduating, Grafton worked as a hospital admissions clerk, a cashier, and a medical secretary in Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, California.

She interviewed and reinterviewed Laurence's ex-wife Gwen and their two grown children, Greg and Diane; Laurence's former business partner and colleague, Charlie Scorsoni; Laurence's former secretary, Sharon Rapier and of course, she also tracked down and interviewed Libby Glass's family and colleagues, including her emotionally devastated parents and her rude and bad-tempered ex-boyfriend Lyle. In "A de la alibi" naratiunea se face la persoana intai din perspectiva detectivei particulare Kinsey Millhone. It looked as if Nikki Fife knew better than to try disentangling herself from him legally and had sought other means. I listened to the audiobook of A Is For Alibi by Sue Grafton, narrated by Mary Peiffer and published by Books on Tape via OverDrive.And despite the fact that Kinsey drives around in her '68 VW 'Bug' and has terrible dietary habits (or maybe BECAUSE of those things), I find that I still really like her character. A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton started off pretty slow for me for most of the first half of the book but then it picked up after that and was fast paced all the way to the conclusion.

At first I thought maybe I would try reading a couple of her books before I made a decision, but I don't think I could make it through another book of this caliber. Now, eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killer her husband. Grafton openly admits that she conceived the story from her own "fantasies" of murdering her husband while going through a divorce. The state of California is scrupulous in its division of assets, but Laurence Fife had a way of maneuvering monies so that even a fifty-fifty split gave him the lion’s share.But she does take her work seriously; in fact, it’s more important to her than just about anything else.
