"E" is for Evidence by Sue Grafton

I'm chugging right along in my quest to read the alphabet and the books are getting longer. Finally got a little more back story involving one of Kinsey's exes. And if you don't like spoilers then stop reading now.

Kinsey get's almost blown up twice. And in thrown away plot devices--her ex husband is gay, incest factors into the mystery, and the perp ends up being a serial killer. No matter the ex hits the road, again and almost everyone else is dead. I guess I like a little more plot development than having random things thrown in at the end as "explanations".

Do I like these books--yes will I keep reading--yes.

"C" is for Corpse by Sue Grafton

A swift little slice of Kinsey Millhone, same quibbles, and the quirk to this mystery is that her client is dead before we even get out of the first couple of chapters.

"D" is for Deadbeat by Sue Grafton

Slowly making my way through the alphabet. Each book I come more a part of the Kinsey Millhone fan club. May not always agree with or understand her but I like her and will read on...although my quibbles remain and the books are only getting longer.

B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton

Kinsey is back for book #2. I'm getting into the Kinsey groove. Same quibbles I had with the first book remain a prevalent feature of the second...that being said these are enjoyable quick reads thus far.

A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton

Kinsey Millhone is a very quirky independent single woman, who I don't always agree with but...these mysteries are quickly read. I found the early titles a bit thinly constructed and mostly glued together with overly descriptive paragraphs about scenery and what not--that do absolutely nothing to further or give depth to the storyline. However, I think the author is growing into her craft, and these books get better over time. At least that is my hope as each book in the series is longer than the one that precedes it. Wish me luck I hope I make it to the end of the alphabet, even if Ms. Grafton sadly did not.
