Format: Hardcover
Sue Grafton is always exploring new subjects and new ways of writing for her readers. T is for Trespass continues that worthy heritage for this terrific series.

If you haven't read any books in this series, I suggest you go back and read them in alphabetical order beginning with A is for Alibi. You have a major treat ahead of you. The series develops over a number of years, and many references are clearer throughout if you've read the earlier books.

The writing innovation here is to have two narrators, Kinsey Millhone, and Kinsey's nemesis, named Solana Rojas, whom fate brings together in Kinsey's neighborhood to create a taut suspense story. You will see the future conflict clearly coming, but won't know what to expect. Sue Grafton does a wonderful job of filling the story with lots of surprises to heighten the suspense. The struggle between the two women is intensified by Solana being portrayed from the beginning as being the psychological opposite of Kinsey. You'll enjoy a heightened sense of tension by knowing what the two determined women are thinking about and planning to do.

The new topic is how some people prey on others in particularly chilling ways by taking advantage of the presumption we hold that we are surrounded by trustworthy people. It's a cautionary tale that will leave you wanting to do more to check out those with whom you and your family come into contact. The book is so powerful in this dimension that at times you'll feel like you are reading a nonfiction book about a tragedy.

As the book opens, Solana is looking for opportunity and Kinsey is looking for some work. Solana has just left her last job and explains what her objectives are in Chapter One.

Format: Hardcover
First Sentence: She had a real name, of course--the one she'd been given at birth and had used for much of her life--but now she had a new name.

When Kinsey's elderly neighbor, Gus, takes a fall and breaks his collarbone, Kinsey locates and summons his daughter from the East Coast. Too busy to stay and take care of her father, she hires a woman named Solana Rojas and has Kinsey do a cursory background check. This is a case of what Kinsey did not find; Solana is not who she says.

I hadn't read Grafton in awhile, and now I remember why. Set in the 1980s, in Kinsey's life we are only about 5 years ahead of the first book. However, in those 5 years, Kinsey really has not changed. It's not that just that her habits have not changed--she still quarter-cuts her sandwiches, loves McDonalds Quarter-Pounders with cheese, and small places; okay, she has a new car--but she hasn't grown emotionally.

I do love her sense of humor and her loyalty to her friends. Grafton, in general, has created a wonderful set of characters, both the traditional supporting characters and the new ones. The villain of the piece is wonderfully scary and diabolical.

I found the plot interesting and very much conducive to a one-sitting read. I actually liked that Kinsey was working more than one case, as it seemed more realistic, but there were times where she seemed a bit slow on the uptake.

The biggest problem I had with the book is Grafton's writing style. There were multiple, massive portents that then diminished the element of suspense, in many cases, the coincidences so numerous and large you could drive a truck through them. A couple of times, I found myself saying "Oh, please!".

The book wasn't awful; I did read it in one sitting.

Format: Hardcover
This is a 4.75 star book, because I found it a little slow in the first pages. Other than that, I found it excellent.

Kinsey's elderly cantankerous neighbor, Gus Vronsky, needs some home nursing help. Enter Solana Rojas, a woman who systematically strips the old man of his confidence, dignity, his possessions and ultimately, potentially, his life. The book was sometimes written from Kinsey's and Solana's perspective, which worked very well.

As with all Sue Grafton's books, it is set in the 1980s, but is totally relevant to today.

Kinsey cannot get the authorities to act, and the frustration leaps from the page. Anyone who has ever dealt with bureaucracy in a similar situation will empathize.

There was one main storyline in this, unlike her earlier works which sometimes have multiple threads. I prefer the multiple storylines, yet this book was so strong it was impossible to put down. It was so plausible, and unlike the other books, could happen to someone we love, neighbor, or even ourselves.

I am a Sue Grafton fan, and I consider S for Silence her best S Is for Silence (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries). Maybe that is because I liked the little bit of romance in "S". T for Trespass is a very different book, and quite frightening as it is probably happening all around us, but as a book absolutely gripping once you get into it.

Kinsey is still a loner, living a solitary life. I find that aspect probably the least appealing. She doesn't have the complications of relationships, having ditched her boyfriend between S and T, which makes her a little one dimensional.
