5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rich Milligan on 24 Oct. 2005
Format: Paperback
"E is for Evidence" is an explosive addition to the Kinsey Millhorne series of alphabet mysteries and proves to be another close shave with death for the plucky adventurous Ms Millhorne.

Just a couple of days before Christmas, Kinsey is given some routine insurance work to do. The work comes her way from California Fidelity, the insurance company from whom Kinsey rents her office space. The work seems fairly routine; they want her to check out a fire claim that has just been lodged by a manufacturer of industrial furnaces called Wood/Warren. Kinsey remembers she went to school with one of the Wood children, Ashley, and the job seems like an ideal opportunity to catch up with some old friends.

What causes the case to take a turn for the worst is the news Kinsey receives just after Christmas when a $5,000 deposit is made into her bank account, when this is quickly followed by accusations that she is taking "back-handers" from the Woods it would seem that Kinsey has been well and truly set up by someone. As usual it takes all of Kinsey's bravery and intuition to discover what's really going on between the warring factions of the Wood family, an investigation which causes the death of one of the Wood siblings and nearly claims Kinsey's own life.

This is a great book to the series, not just for the mystery side of the story but this fills in some huge blanks in Kinsey's former life as we are introduced to her second husband, the musician and apparently the most beautiful man Kinsey has met, Daniel. We do learn though of the self-destructive nature of Daniel's character and at least his reappearance confirms to Kinsey she was correct to divorce him.

I love the way Grafton takes unpromising material and makes it so thrilling. A routine fire insurance claim turns into a multiple murder investigation in which Millhone finds herself close to death. Kept me on the edge of my seat.

Format: Paperback
Sue Grafton has hit on a great formula and I don't use that term in a derogatory way. She sets up the story in detail and with humour and humanity. Our heroine, Kinsey, is someone who grows on you book by book and does silly things as well as clever ones showing endearing traits as well as frustrating ones. The writing is good with varied pace and doesn't involve tracts of technical detail. So if you don't know the books, this will be atreat for you and you needn't start at A and work through them, though having read one, I tried to do this. Each stands alone and gives you an interesting detective story with thriller elements and witha realistic and sympathetic heroine, and one with whom both women and men can identify with little trouble.

By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 May 2013
Format: Paperback
You don't have to start at "A" to read this series of books as the author keeps each volume relatively self-contained. This is a good mystery novel set in California and written before the advent of the Internet and mobile phones. It is well worth a read because of the clever storytelling.

Kinsey is a PI who does some work for insurance companies. Around Christmastime she is startled to find an unexpected deposit in her bank account which is then used as evidence to accuse her of taking bribes. Obviously wishing to clear her name and her reputation she carries on investigating where she has been warned off as well as looking into who might be framing her. The investigation concentrates on a family business the owners of which she has known in the past. When one murder follows another and Kinsey's ex-husband turns up out of the blue she has a lot to uncover very quickly before she is in danger herself - but she may not be quick enough.

Engaging reading with minimal violence, no swearing and no sex scenes but still giving the impression of danger and excitement. A clever puzzle for Kinsey to unravel with lots of secrets to uncover. Good reading.

I love, love, love Kinsey Millhone. I am re-reading these in order as I first read them in paperback many years ago. For me these stories never fail - the writing and characterisation are consistent, yet Kinsey does develop as the stories progress. Her odd quirks and idiosyncrasies make her an engaging character and I find I really want to know what happens next.

The peripheral characters like Henry and Rosie add to the mix and Kinsey comes across as a real human being with all that entails.

Reading back also reminds me of some of the trials and tribulations that Kinsey has been through over the course of her life of crime solving - this book containing one of the big shocks which I won't spoil, but also reveals some of her frailties and weaknesses.

Readable, exciting - I loved it.

One of these days I suppose I'll come across a Sue Grafton/Kinsey Millhone book which scores less than five stars, but this is as good as ever. The plot and characterisation are good, as is the pace of the book. and there's the underlying Grafton/Millhone humour, as well as interesting snippets about American society: for example how the "upper echelons" might talk about "the lavatory", "bathroom seeming too crude a term". Sounds a bit like England!

But it's more than just a jokey thriller. Sue Grafton draws a dark picture of a rich, dysfunctional family. Read the book and see.
