Book Description

11 Oct 2012 Kinsey Millhone Mystery 12

'M' is for Malek Construction, the $40 million company that grew out of modest soil to become one of the big three in California.

'M' is for Malek family: four sons now nearing middle age who stand to inherit a fortune – four men with very different temperaments and needs, linked only by blood and money. Eighteen years ago, one of them – angry, troubled and in trouble – went missing.

'M' is for Millhone, now hired to trace that missing black sheep brother.

And, in brutal consequence, 'M' is for murder . . .

'Another treat from the alphabet queen' Daily Mail

Product Description

Review

"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""Lord, how I like this Kinsey Millhone...The best detective fiction I have read in years."--"The New York Times Book Review""Smart, tough, and thorough...Kinsey Millhone is a pleasure."--"The Bloomsbury Review""Kinsey is one of the most persuasive of the new female operatives...She's refreshingly free of gender cliches. Grafton, who is a very witty writer, has also given her sleuth a nice sense of humor--and a set of Wonder Woman sheets to prove it."--"Boston Herald""What grandpa used to call a class act."--Stanley Ellin"Smart, sexual, likable and a very modern operator."--Dorothy Salisbury Davis

5.0 out of 5 stars Such believable characters! 23 Jun 2005
Format:Paperback
I have read a few of the alphabet series, in no particular order, and thought every one of them brilliant. I love Kinsey Millhone, she is flawed enough to be funny, believable and human. This outing had me hooked from the off, and when she found Guy Malek I felt like I knew the man. How I wished they would get together! I was so sad at the events that unfolded, and the cruel twist as the truth about Guy's honour among his dishonest brothers was revealed. When Kinsey found the note in her car, I nearly wept- but read the book to find out everything for yourself. You won't regret it- the characters are so real, if you will excuse the tired cliche, I feel as if I know them by now. Guy Malek is another one to add to the list of people I forget aren't real and never have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time reader of Sue Grafton bowled over 5 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I had never read any of Sue Grafton's novels until a month ago when I picked up "M is for Malice". I thought it was a brilliant , suspenceful read and for a hardened reader of crime novels I actually shed a tear at the very end. The heroine Kinsey is thoroughly believable and a real flesh and blood character. I'm looking forward to reading more of Sue Grafton's works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to her usual standard 25 Oct 2009
By Derek
Format:Paperback
Sue Grafton keeps up her excellent standard in this book. The plot is the usual blend of the everyday and the complex and we are fully involved with our heroine Kinsey. I do recommend that readers start at A and carry on through the series as though each book is stand-alone the relationship that we develop with our PI is an important ingredient. Anyone who enjoys a good and realistic detective yarn without miraculous technology and with twists and turns and nothing too stupidly coincidental, will enjoy these books and this one is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 12 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 12 Jan 2014
By maggi.d
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is formulaic but that can be good,as it gives a familiarity to certain aspects, leaving the plot as the really interesting core. I like her writing. You KNOW her land-lord, you KNOW her local diner, you KNOW her home- but you don't KNOW whodunnit ,or why,for a good while. What will we do when she runs out of alphabet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Mystery!!! 21 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the alphabet series, then stopped reading them a long time ago. Thought I would try another after loads of rom-com books. Sue Grafton captured my interest immediately and it was good to track Kinsey's continuing PI life.

5.0 out of 5 stars BJL 19 Sep 2013
By Brenda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been reading the series from the beginning, in order; I love Kinsey for her humour, humanity and willingness to plough on regardless. The descriptions of the people and places take you right there, also always spiced with a gentle smile. The plot always moves on at the right pace; reading the stories in order makes them seem like chapters in one long book, as Kinsey goes in revealing herself. Always a good read.
