Review

PHENOMENAL PRAISE FOR THE MYSTERY NOVELS OF #1 "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLING AUTHOR SUE GRAFTON “Exceptionally entertaining…an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice.”—"San Francisco Chronicle"“Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire…P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator…are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes.”—"The Buffalo News"“Once a fan reads one of Grafton’s alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found.”—"Los Angeles Herald Examiner"“Millhone is a refreshingly strong and resourceful female private eye.”—"Library Journal"“Tough but compassionate…There is no one better than Kinsey Millhone.”—"Best Sellers"“A woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner.”—"Newsweek"“ --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I think that out of all of the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet Mystery books that I have read, and than includes ones that come after this one in the series, "L is for Lawless" remains as one of my personal favourites. The mix of puzzling mystery, thrilling danger and almost slapstick comedy makes for a real page turner of a book.

Kinsey is settling down to a quiet couple of days before the Thanksgiving holidays. Apart from the fact that it is a public holiday, her landlord Henry Pitt's brother, William is getting married to Kinsey's local restaurateur Rosie. It promises to be quite something of a wedding as Henry's other octogenarian siblings (and even nonagenarian siblings) have made the journey to be at the wedding and Kinsey herself is to be a bridesmaid.

As a favour Henry asks Kinsey to help out a neighbour of theirs, Bucky Lee whose grandfather has just died. The family, consisting of Bucky's wife Babe and his father Chester think that Grandfather Johnny was a war veteran and should be eligible for a war veteran's burial allowance. When the military deny that Johnny was ever a serviceman the family are suspicious and suspect that someone or something is being covered up. One of Johnny's supposedly old service colleagues Ray Rawson has also turned up on the scene and when he is beaten up and a burglary takes place at Bucky's it really does seem like something is going on.

Kinsey, ever the all action heroine, manages to follow one of the burglars and the trail takes her on a flight to Dallas where she has to hole up in a very dodgy looking mock-medieval castle hotel to try to find out the story behind the crime.

This is a brilliant addittion to the MIllhone series. It is so wonderfully exciting i read about 250 pages in one non-stop sitting, hardly pausing. THe plot is exciting, and intriguing, (Why do the millitary records department have no record of Johnny, who, his family know, had been in service with them for many yearas?)and the denouement is unusually surprising. So why only four stars? For the simple reason that she does not keep up the excitement past about page three hundred, and it gets quite slow and steroetypical. (Considering the theme). However, that does not let the book down very much at all. And any damage is made up by the wonderfull epilogue.

Format: Paperback
Grafton is an extremely polished writer and it shows with this effortless piece of writing. I do suggest starting from the beginning of the alphabet murders if you want to know Kinsey Millhone properly. Each book reveals more of her character until you feel genuinely affectionate for this hard to pin down character. This time we are out of her native town and find her floundering in her new environs. Lots of twists and turns and plenty of uncertainty make for a splendid read.

Another great Kinsey Millhone investigation, this time she is asked to do a favour for a friend, sounds simple but turns out to be anything but. Always compassionate and with a wry sense of humour, Kinsey becomes reluctantly involved on the trail of a missing jewellery heist from the 1940s. Think this is a very good example of this intriguing series.

As with all the Sue Grafton alphabet books they are individual stories but reading A - W Kinsey Millhone, the female Private Detective grows and not only do you read about the case in question but it follows her love life or lack of at times and are really enjoyable reads. This is my third time going through the series as I first had them in books and are now transferring to my kindle and I know in future I shall read them again.

Have enjoyed all the other books in this series so far, my only disappointment with this book was the ending was a bit rushed or so I felt, no real closure.

L is for Lawless both a name and a way of life! As ever Kinsey gets drawn into matters that don't concern her directly. This time she's not even getting paid for it! I am working my way from a onwards - thought I had read them all but I don't remember this one! It was a bit of fun and another episode I the enthral long life of Kinsey. No sex, no violence (well only a little bit) but a good read nevertheless.
