Product Description

Review

"EVERYTHING THAT HAS ALWAYS WORKED FOR THIS FIRST-CLASS SERIES WORKS BETTER HERE. . . . O Is for Outlaw comes across with a freshness that suggests [Sue Grafton] has been taking stock of her skills, sharpening them up for the long haul."--The New York Times Book Review "EXTREMELY GOOD--OUTSTANDING, IN FACT. . . . As always Millhone is an engaging detective--a bit lighthearted, a bit sarcastic, always resourceful, and frequently funny."--San Francisco Chronicle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
When a writer of crime fiction runs out of ideas, he or she tends to let bad things happen to the detective or the detective's family. That's always a bad sign. So when Kinsey Millhone's ex-husband is killed, and she starts investigating out of sheer quriosity (and, perhaps, for old times 'sake), this should be a warning to the reader.
Sue Grafton sticks to her well-known routine in the O-book. Her heroine Kinsey Millhone jogs her 4 miles, lifts weights, eats junk food and makes notes on cards as usual. She breaks into the sealed houses of victims and suspects, and gladly puts herself in life-threatening situations, as in every book. She makes friends among lower-class people in about the same unrealistic way as Enid Blyton's Famous Five.
The only new thing about this book is that it is more clearly fixed in time, in the early eighties. Not that Grafton makes much use of it.
However, Kinsey's charm, sense of humour and her self-irony go straight into the reader's heart. So does her honesty:"If the bad guys don't play by the rules, why should the good guys have to?" Sue Grafton knows how to create a good story; it's just entertainment, but good entertainment.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Dec. 2000
Format: Paperback
There are some good red herrings in this book, which she handles much better here than in K is for Killer. This is the most personal novel about Kinsey to date and I enjoyed the chance to find out more about her past and what makes her tick. Deception and false impressions are a strong theme of the book and make for a satisfyingly complex tangle to unravel.

I have been an avid fan of the Sue Grafton series. I was give I is for Innocent as a pressie. Since then I have never looked back. A plucky female detective!!!! If you have never read an of her books before I can guarentee you will love it. If you have read any of the previous novels you will love this also, a lot of loose strings are ties, old and new character are there. So wait no longer, pick it up and have a jolly good read.

Format: Paperback
Another First for Sue Grafton. The central plot takes you into Grafton's PI, Kinsey Millhone's, past. With each novel we seem to learn more and more about the PI and her background. This is cleverly done, as it gives the author more scope for future novels. In the latest alphabet novel, Millhone investigates her first husband's involvement in a murder, which took pace some 15 years ago. At the time, she could have cleared his name, but chose to go her own way. Now she has to admit that she may have been wrong, and someone is after her Ex. For me, I enjoyed every page of this book. I look forward to each new alphabet novel, and I have not been disappointed yet! Please can she hurry up wiyh the next one!

By Derek on 27 Nov. 2009
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.

I look forward every year to the new 'Kinsey' adventure and I was not disappointed here. It was great to read some more about 'Kinsey's pastlife & first husband'. I also liked the preface from Ms Grafton, explaining about timings. I have sometimes forgotten aand wondered why Kinsey does not have a mobile and easy access to the 'net'. Not necessarily her best but definately a very good read.

Another cracking tale by Sue Grafton featuring her irrepressible investigator, Kinsey Milhone. Part of the successful Alphabet series, this involves Kinsey personally as one of the victims is her exhusband whom she hasn't heard from for fifteen years. Whilst he lies in a coma, Kinsey has to delve into the past going back to the Vietnamese war.

Another great novel in this series, written with humour. It was gripping and I didn't want to stop reading. Hours of entertainment.
