"One of the sassiest, most appealing of the recent spate of female gunshoes . . . 'G' is for glorious, galloping read, and I can't wait for 'H' ."--Louise Bernikow, CosmopolitanGood and bad things seem to be coming in threes for Kinsey Millhone: on her thirty-third birthday she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of ex-con Tyrone Patty's hit list. It's the last that convinces Kinsey even she can't handle whoever's been hired to whack her, and she gets herself a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porsche-driving P.I. who takes guarding Kinsey's body very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into her case. And before it's over, she'll unearth the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, come fact-to-face with her own mortality. . . . "Wit is the most versatile weapon in Sue Grafton's well-stocked arsenal, and she uses it with disarming precision. . . . Grafton excels in this milieu."--Newsweek"The story is complex; the body-count high; the sexual encounters feverish; and the villains chilling--in another can't-put-it-down outing for this talented author."--Kirkus Reviews

What can you say about Sue Grafton other than she is a great mystery writer. Kinsey Milhone is an ex-cop and has her own detective agency and never much of a sex life if that what your looking for, go elsewhere. This is a traditional gumshoe story with action and danger for our heroine. After some spotty success writing books, Grafton changed to writing screenplays for TV and movies. With the success of her first Alphabet series book ' A is for Alibi' in 1982 it has continued to date. I first discovered her books when I came across 'G is for Gumshoe' (pub 1990) in a recycle center in 2000, I proceeded to local bookstores and Amazon to acquire all of this series up until the current at the time 'O is For Outlaw'. It's always great when you come across a great series in progress as it's a joy just reading book after book from a great writer. Much like 'binge watching TV series on Netflix nowadays. Only problem with an ongoing series is waiting for the next book. Grafton has done only a couple of yearly books and mostly every other year since 'P is for Peril' in 2001. It is now up to just plain 'X' in 2015 and will end with 'Z is for Zero'. I'm hoping she has Y & Z completed as she is 75 now and I'm 70 and don't want to miss the conclusion of this great series.

One of the main reasons I really enjoyed this book is watching Kinsey sense something about a case and not give up until she figures it all out. I also liked the incorporation of two separate storylines with moments of merging. Sue Grafton did an excellent job of incorporating the hitman story into the Agnes Grey story without either of them overwhelming the whole book. Both storylines are engaging and immediately grabbed my interest. I was anxiously waiting to see what came next and Grafton excels at building the suspense in this one.

I think I’m half in love with Henry Pitts just as Kinsey is. His devotion and caring for her is so genuine and heartfelt. I truly think he is someone she can completely be herself with and someone who loves her no matter what.

In G is for Gumshoe, we get our first glimpse of Kinsey working with a partner and I think I prefer Kinsey on her. I tried to like the Dietz character but he seemed to have a very dark side we only got a glimpse of and I didn’t buy him as a romantic interest for Kinsey at all.

Judy Kaye as usual is the only voice of series there needs to be. I have no words for how well she is as a narrator.

I started reading this series years ago, and somehow missed a number of the books. I decided to finish reading the series now. I always liked the lead character, Kinsey. She's tough, independent, clever with a touch of vulnerability thrown into the mix. The plots are interesting without being too predictable. This book is just as enjoyable as I remember the series being. In this story, Kinsey starts offto do a health and safety check on a client's mother. When the elderly woman ends up dead, Kinsey stumbled on a 50-year-old mystery thst she tries to solve while trying to keep one step ahead of a shadow from her own past. Frightened by an attempt on her own life, Kinsey hires a body guard. As Kinsey struggles to unravel clues surrounding the woman's death, her body guard struggles to keep an independent Kinsey alive. The bodyguard and Kinsey develop an unexpected appreciation for each other, and the stakes suddenly increase for everyone involved.

"G is for Gumshoe" is a good entry in Sue Grafton's alphabet series; however, I think it may be my least favorite so far (I'm reading them in order). The book starts right after the conclusion of "F is for Fugitive" (which was one of my favorites). Kinsey's newly re-constructed apartment is finally ready, but she has little time to enjoy it due to a new case, working for the sickly Irene Gersh. Irene's mother (Agnes Grey) has been living in the so-called Slab City, a community of snowbirds who park their trailers on abandoned concrete slabs near the Salton Sea. Agnes has been out of touch with her daughter for several months, and Irene wants Kinsey to check on her. Sounds like a simple case for Kinsey. Of course, there is much more to the story here. On another front, Kinsey has been targeted for revenge by a demented criminal she helped put away years ago, Tyrone Patty. He hires a hit-man to take out Kinsey, who responds by hiring a body-guard PI named Robert Dietz.

The story gets off to a terrific, action-packed start and clips along at a nice pace. Also, it was great to see Kinsey's interactions with a fellow PI. Dietz is an interesting character who reminded me a bit of Stephanie Plum's later character, Ranger. Kinsey and Dietz make a good pair, and I hope to see him in future books. The mystery with Agnes Grey was interesting and featured some nice sleuthing on Kinsey's part. However, it was a tad confusing at times and wrapped up rather abruptly. Indeed, I've often had issues with Grafton's books concluding a bit quickly and with convenient confessions. The problem seems more pronounced here, and the two stories don't quite merge in a satisfying way. I've also noticed a pattern of Kinsey becoming confidantes extremely quickly with her clients. In general, this conceit works because it allows us greater access to the clients, but I always find it odd considering Kinsey's relatively asocial nature. As with all of Grafton's books, "G is for Gumshoe" was well-written and enjoyable. I just enjoyed it a tad less than usual.
