5.0 out of 5 stars E Is for Evidence 24 Oct 2005
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Millhone book yet 16 Nov 2000
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to her usual standard 27 Nov 2009
By Derek
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars and they wonderful to read in order 28 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is a whole alphabet of these books, and they wonderful to read in order, but each book is stand alone. So if this is your first one, it is fine.
The writing is a plain straight forward style, and our heroin is a good up right girl.but, She is not above a bit of breaking and entering, but nothing too bad. The book moves along at a pace, and the end usually has a twist, you do not see coming. The characters she
has around her are delightful. Three cheers for a writer, who makes old age sound like fun.
Would recommend all Sue Graftons books
