“Honestly, [Kinsey] fascinates me. Grafton does a good job of making her a hardass private investigator and yet she is still so relatable.”

Here we go again! In the second book of the Kinsey Millhone alphabet mysteries, Kinsey is once again on the move. This time she is flying back between Florida and California to search for a woman by the name of Elaine Boldt. Her sister is looking for her to sign some papers that require immediate attention. However, Kinsey discovers that there might be some other events that may be connected to Elaine’s disappearances as well.
As you can guess by the title, the book does involve some burglaries and this is where things start to get a little bloodier. As Kinsey tries to find out how exactly all these situations line up with Elaine’s disappearance, readers get a better look at the workings of her mind. I have to give it to Kinsey. She’s one smart woman and I love how she does this all on her own. Honestly, she fascinates me. Grafton does a good job of making her a hardass private investigator and yet she is still so relatable. All I kept thinking about while listening to this audio was how awesome it would be if this series was made into a TV series.
I also wanted to briefly mention that this book can be read as a standalone. The series is a long one but Grafton provides enough detail and description that anyone can really jump in and enjoy each book on its own. So if you’re intrigued like me, now is your chance to try it out! It’s amazing in audio as well and I would recommend to listen to those if you can.
