"'Quiveringly alive' Daily Telegraph; 'C is for classy, multiplex plotting, strong characterization and a tough cookie heroine' Time Out; 'She has guts, humour, and conscience... alphabetically speaking, we can look forward to 23 more Kinseys' The Times" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Sue Grafton has become one of the most popular female writers, both in the UK and in the US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before Kinsey Millhone and the 'alphabet' series took off. She plans to take Kinsey all the way through the alphabet to Z. Sue lives and writes in Montecito, California and Louisville, Kentucky.

Format: Paperback
I usually don't like to use the word "cozy" in describing a mystery because it makes me think I won't like it but I'd have to say that Grafton's alphabet series can only be described as such. There isn't much violence yet most of the stories do involve a murder. She has the knack for writing plausible yarns that keep the reader guessing until the very end. "C" Is For Corpse is no exception and was a very enjoyable read in my opinion
These are all quick reads and, while they can stand alone, it's more fun starting with "A" and following Kinsey's caseload from month to month. Grafton has written these books in such a way that when you finish one and start the next, only a matter of weeks have passed in Kinsey's life. I find the best time to read them is when you're craving something light and not too taxing on the brain yet written well enough to maintain your interest level. I have "D" Is For Deadbeat lined up next but I'll have to read a few "heavier" books first so that I can fully appreciate the relaxation I experience when reading the next letter in this alphabet series.

One where Kinsey gets personal. I enjoyed the blurring between personal and client relationships and how it affected her ability to solve the case. It is rare for Kinsey to get emotionally involved and it's what makes the case so interesting.

Format: Paperback
C Is for Corpse (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries)
The book, a first for me by this author, starts off well: "I met Bobby Callahan on the Monday of that week. By Thursday, he was dead." Sentences are short and crisp, and we immediately want to know who killed him. But there are too many characters,one of whom is mentioned on page 18 and doesn't appear again until very much later, when the reader has forgotten all about him, an indication of the pace of the narrative. "I headed towards Saint Teresa Fitness, gassing up on the way" is an indication of the style. A college student gives 2000 dollars to a private investigator on page 15, but it isn't until page 54 that we learn how he was able to do this. That same investigator is able to change into a classy outfit in the confines of a car, not really credible even though American cars are bigger.
There's a liberal sprinkling of four-letter words, as well as blasphemy, and casual sex is taken for granted in all sections of society - and at all ages. There's no denying this book is very readable, but one has to like endless accounts of workouts and minute descriptions of meal-making, as well as descriptions of what everybody drinks. Come to that, the whole book sometimes seems to be swimming in coffee.
The first attempt on Bobby's life leaves him crippled. This word is used a great deal, along with descriptions of the pitying looks he receives and his inability to accept help. This gives some insight into what it feels like to go from being very fit to hardly able to function but there is just too much of it. We are led to believe that the private investigator is the only one who sees the boy as a person.

I am becoming a "fan" of Sue Grafton books and so far I have not been disappointed in those I have read. I look forward to reading D next.

I really enjoy these books, they all contain great stories, not too ridiculous to be believed. Kinsey, the private eye is a very normal down o earth character

I have only recently been introduced to Kinsey Milhone and I enjoy her. Sue Grafton writes well, not great literature but good light reading.
