What can you say about Sue Grafton other than she is a great mystery writer.

Kinsey Millhone started to wonder what the information contains and paid the money.

Sue Grafton is still going strong 15 books into this series. All of the books in this series, from A is for Alibi to N is for Noose are read by Judy Kaye. She always did a fantastic job and I have a feeling her narration is a big part of why I’ve enjoyed these. bookworm12 1Go to bookworm12 1's profile. Kinsey’s first marriage has always been an unknown for readers. In this book we get to explore that relationship and in doing so we learn more about the tough . we’ve come to know and love. O is for Outlaw has the same expected set up of the other novels, it just deals with Kinsey’s past instead of a stranger’s this time.

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.

Another reader stated "O" should stand instead for Obligation. I agree with her. The novel is retro 80's, with it's roots in the early 70's. It involves Kinsey's first and very short marriage to Mickey Magruder, a cop.
Mickey being badly hurt, Kinsey's on a bit of a guilt trip feeling she was unfair in letting go of the marriage as quickly as she had. She feels obligated to make things "Right" by finding Mickey's assailant.
The story has an entire host of possible suspects. The settings go from seedy bars to mansions to the Vietnam War. The suspects go back a good 15 years. Grandsons are also suspect. The reader probably will not figure the guilty one until shortly before the end.

Kinsey walks the fence as usual, staying inside the law; sometimes straying just outside. Ms. Grafton, throughout the series, has developed her character so very well. Nothing wrong with a health conscious PI with a penchant for McDonald's Quarter Pounders. She's real; she's human. She has her usual cast of regular characters surrounding her. The book has it's usual epilogue tying up loose ends. Ms. Grafton normally does well with these. This epilogue is particularly touching. It's a very good novel with some very good characters.

If you're reading this review, chances are you've read some (if not most or all) of Sue Grafton's books featuring PI Kinsey Millhone. I've read most of them but this one had escaped me and when Amazon had the Kindle version on sale, I jumped at getting it. I love that Kinsey is female, an independent spirit, and smart. I love that all the books are set in the 1980s and she has to do without the convenience of a cell phone (so many of the predicaments she finds herself in would be easily resolved if she had a cell phone). Grafton brings the 80s to life in her alphabet series, and it's as much fun to read for the 80s flavor as it is to read her books for the mystery. As plots go, this is one of the weaker ones IMHO, as it focuses more on Kinsey's past. The mystery takes a back seat, but it also was nice to learn a little more about Kinsey in this book. I hate to see this series come to its inevitable end when Grafton gets to the letter Z, but until then, enjoy!

Much of the charm of many detective series relates to the refreshing references to times past. Walter Moseley's work is a good example. Dashiell Hammett is another example In these cases, the most successful books also teach you something about the people and the time that you did not know before. Sue Grafton has reached into this genre by letting Kinsey's time pass more slowly than our own. As a result, the patina of age is becoming more significant and charming . . . especially in this book. Perhaps the high point here is in expressing sexual and personal mores of earlier times, in ways that resonated for me. I also found that Sue Grafton has gotten better at adding sub-plots, many of which served as good red herrings for what was going on. My biggest disappointment was that it was very easy to figure out who the murderer was, because the plot design meant that few would have the motive and access to execute this exact murder. In fact, I think this book was the easiest one to figure out in the series. My suggestion is that she go back before the second printing and change the murder to make it much more cloudy who the murderer is. I, too, was charmed by some of the new characters and hope that she will write more about her best designed characters in the future whoever they turn out to be in each book. In P is for . . . , I hope she writes a book that will have a totally different plot structure. I think that will be fun for Sue Grafton and for us. If Sue Grafton was less talented, I would not bother to make these suggestions, but she is capable of lifting us to sublime new heights of ecstasy in future books. We should all encourage and applaud her when she moves in that direction. I also hope that the future books will continue to add that beautiful patina of the periods she illuminates.

My least favorite is novel 15 in the series, I must be honest. This one was just so boring and difficult to follow. It just was not interesting at all and frankly I could care less about the characters in this particular book. So, one out of 15 is not bad so I am looking forward to N is for noose!

I really liked this one! I have read all of the previous "alphabet" books with breaks in between to read other authors. It has been a couple of months since I read the last saga of Kinsey Millhone. This one was a real treat. Kinsey's detective skills were really sharp in this one. The story was very well presented and the ending was a good surprise. I also liked the fact that there wasn't as much physical violence directed towards our hero. I really enjoy the story better when she thinks her way out of a situation rather then has to beat her way out while fighting for her life. I won't wait as long to read the next letter in the alphabet!
