About this deal

She’s thirty-two years old and twice divorced, which means she has bad taste in men, or men unwisely choose her as marriage material, or she likes the thought of being married but doesn’t like the whole commitment aspect. So excellent so far - all the best ingredients of a mystery including a business partner, a bitter ex-wife, a pair of dysfunctional children and a blackmailing secretary. Mystery Town: Whodunit author Sue Grafton lives in Santa Barbara and sets her tales in Santa Teresa".

My views in the following review reflect the person I was when I wrote them and may not reflect who I am today - for better or for worse. I’ve lived in trailers most of my life, but lately they’ve been getting too elaborate for my taste, so now I live in one room, a “bachelorette.Recent eliberata pe cautiune doreste sa i se faca dreptate si o angajeaza pe Kinsey sa descopere adevaratul faptas. The first-person narrative allows the reader to see through the eyes of Kinsey, who chronicles various descriptions of "eccentric buildings and places", giving depth to the narrative. I know there’s a splinter in there somewhere, and if I poke around too long, I’ll find it, or it’ll find me.

Chip Grafton was a municipal bond attorney in Kentucky who pursued a secondary career as a crime novelist, winning minor acclaim for four novels. Grafton's captivating storytelling and complex characters have made her a beloved figure in the literary world. The interior was done with polished uneven red-tile flooring, mirrors floor to ceiling, and panels of raw gray wood, hung here and there with clusters of dried corn. I know that I'll have to read over 20 books to get up to date with her but, based on this one, it will not be a chore.

Now, at thirty-two, she is about to be paroled, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence. It's interesting that Kinsey Millhone and Vic Warshawski both appeared for the first time in the same year.

I'd have liked to have a follow-up and longer ending that shows the after-effects, especially Nikki learning what really went down that fateful night years ago, but oh well.Avem de-a face cu un romant politist agreabil, desi probabil ca nu cel mai bun pe care il veti citi, insa destul de bine condus si echilibrat. While going through a "bitter divorce and custody battle that lasted six long years", Grafton imagined ways to kill or maim her ex-husband. Although I like pretty much anything with a bit of mystery, I really like those strong, female heroines like VI Warshawski and Temperance Brennan, so I don't quite know why it's taken me this long to discover Sue Grafton's detective Kinsey Millhone. She then goes to Las Vegas to interview Fife's former secretary, Sharon Napier, who is killed minutes before Kinsey arrives.
