I heard about this series on Central Standard NPR and thought I'd give it a go The good news first Grafton choose to set the entire series in the 1980's It takes sleuthing to a level I haven't seen since Magnum PI Detective Milhorne often stops by the office to check her message machine she uses phone books and pay phones and she uses resources at the library to find facts Fun fun Now the bad news Mystery authors walk a fine line with their readers Make the mystery too difficult to piece together and we complain that not enough was left to the reader Make the mystery too obvious and we not only feel insulted but we also lose faith in our crime solving protagonist Sadly the latter is the case with this novel and i found myself disappointed in Detective Milhorne Three times she had to be clued into an important connection in the case which I'm sure was written for the reader but makes our detective look stupid Further I seldom saw her do any type of sleuthing In fact it was another character that did most of the detective work I think detective Milhorne should have a chat with author Sue Grafton about making her look bad

Millhone in classic form almost outshined by Reba As with many of Sue Grafton's easy reading tales about Santa Teresa private eye Kinsey Millhone the books starts out pretty slow with Kinsey accepting a straightforward assignment to escort home a newly released parolee from women's prison Reba Lafferty The latter is an appealing young woman with fresh ideas and habits including a past penchant for light drugs booze gambling and her former boss Beck That she landed in the slammer by pleading guilty to embezzlement was a bit of a surprise as it didn't really seem her specialty Anyhow it doesn't take Reba long to re engage most of her old habits including sex with the boss What follows is a bit of a cat and cat game between her and Kinsey who tries in vain to keep things on the up and up The plot per se revolves around Beck's money laundering scheme and whether Reba will testify for the Feds against him Some surprises unfold as the story heats up and ere it's over the women are embroiled in a murder and several nasty crosses and double crosses Somewhat conveniently the cops especially in the form of Cheny Phillips who to our shock has several sexual liaisons with the normally not by choice celibate Kinsey save the day but not before uite a few twists and turns entertain us until the final gasps Even Kinsey in her usual brief epilogue admits Reba just might have been the star of this yarn and indeed rooting for her was much of the fun We have no doubt both fans and those newer to Grafton will enjoy this book If a bit less of the road navigation details wardrobe analysis and octogenarian romantic foibles of landlord Henry and his relatives could be pared down a freuent uibble with this series we just might have one of the better light mysteries of the year Meanwhile a nice summertime read for deck or beach
