Compra verificada. I only read a few mystery series, only by women, so I don't know if the series written by men have this phenomenon, but Grafton is a good example of what I've seen with a couple of female mystery writers. Her series started off with books that were lean and economical, with engaging characters and a healthy dose of humor.

By now, however, she has become overly ambitious and her writing is indulgent and the book is bloated. She started this writing from several different characters' points of view a few books ago and it served her well in a couple of books, but in "U is for Undertow" and this one, it just slows down the plot and serves to distract the reader from the central mystery and from the character of Kinsey.

Maybe Grafton is bored with Kinsey? Her relationships with her friends haven't evolved, either.

Anyway, as long as the characters whose points of view she is writing from are interesting, I can tolerate it, but in this book, she has one character who is dull and unsympathetic, the spoiled and wealthy housewife, Nora. I'm not sure Grafton has the skill to build a character by writing from their point of view in third person I noticed this in a couple of the previous books , though she does a good job with Dante. Nora, however, has such a bland and boring writing style that I skipped half of her chapters.

Her actions are inexplicable, partly because she is so poorly drawn as a character. I didn't like her and found her unsympathetic. I felt sorry for Dante at the end. I also don't like the stuffy moralizing that Kinsey does. She certainly isn't averse to breaking the law and counts several law-breakers among her friends, including the character of Pinky Ford in this book.

However, she excoriates the murder victim for contributing to the problem of shoplifting yeah, like Nordstrom's is losing money and yet likes Dante, who is the mastermind and leader of the entire shoplifting racket, whereas Audrey was just a cog in the machine.

Dante was also a hood who had probably killed people and done other horrible things, but he was drawn as being a great guy. BTW, if anybody was interesting enough to write from his point of view, it was Pinky. I really liked him. W is For Wasted. G Is for Gumshoe. P Is For Peril. U Is For Undertow. E Is for Evidence.

Unabridged Version. In this series View all Book Book With no corpse to prove death, however, the insurance company was in no hurry to pay the claim. Dana Jaffe had to wait out the statutory five years until her missing husband could be declared legally dead. Just two months before Wendell Jaffe was sighted in that dusty resort bar, California Fidelity finally paid in full.

Now they wanted the truth. And they were willing to hire Kinsey Millhone to dig it up. As Kinsey pushes deeper into the mystery surrounding Wendell Jaffe's pseudocide, she explores her own past, discovering that in family matters as in crime, sometimes it's better to reserve judgment. Kinsey Millhone's tenth excursion into the dark places of the heart where duplicity is the governing rule and murder the too-frequent result.

It was the silly season and a Monday at that, and Kinsey Millhone was bogged down in a preliminary report on a fire claim. Something was nagging at her, but she couldn't pin it.

Kinsey had never believed in Santa Claus and she wasn't about to change her mind now. Resigning herself to a morning of frustration, she phoned the bank and, assaulted by canned carols, waited on hold for an officer to clear up the snafu. It was with something less than Christmas cheer that Kinsey faced off only minutes later with California Fidelity's Mac Voorhies. Voorhies was smart, humorless, stingy with praise, and totally fair. He was frowning now.

For Kinsey, "E" is for everything she stands to lose if she can't exonerate herself: And so she takes on a new client: As Kinsey begins to unravel the frame-up, she finds that her future is intimately tied to one family's past and to the explosive secret it has protected for almost twenty years.

Digging deeper, she discovers that probing the past can have lethal consequences as she follows a trail of murder that leads to her own front door.

And in what may well be her most challenging case, Kinsey comes up against the fact that sometimes, "E" is forever.


Kinsey's skills are about to be sorely tested. She is about to meet her duplicitous match in a couple of world-class prevaricators who quite literally take her for the ride of her life. Call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest novel with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as bad girl-- quick-witted and quicksilvery, smart-mouthed and smart-alecky-- poking her nose into everyone's dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in an Our Gang comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance.

America's favorite borderline delinquent is back with her one-liners on tap and her energy level on high, romping through her fastest and funniest adventure in this, her twelfth foray into the alphabet of crime.

Book Cases don't get much colder than that of Violet Sullivan, who disappeared from her rural California town in , leaving behind an abusive husband and a seven-year-old named Daisy. All signs point to a runaway wife—the clothes that disappeared; the secret stash of money Violet bragged about; the brazen flirtations she indulged in with local men, including some married ones.

Kinsey tries to pick up a trail by speaking to those who remember Violet—and perhaps were more involved in her life than they let on.

But the trail could lead her somewhere very dangerous. Because the case may have gone cold, but some people's feelings about Violet Sullivan still run as hot as ever Lorna Kepler was beautiful and willful, a loner who couldn't resist flirting with danger.
