This in many ways of a stroke for Kinsey as since the destruction of her garage apartment in the previous book she has been living with her landlord Henry Pitts and in a typical independent Kinsey way she has became increasingly infuriated with Henry's motherly ways.
So Kinsey becomes the guests of the Bailey family although a less than relaxing time is in store for Kinesy. The pretty town of Floral Beach is home to another motley crew of strange characters, whether it's the hypochondriac ramblings of Royce's wife Ori. Pearl the gruff owner of the local bar, or Shanna Timberlake the dead girl's depressed and alcoholic mother.
This is one of the strong points of this book, lacking any of the regular characters from the other Kinsey books; this one is littered with interesting, intriguing and in many cases diabolical characters for us to get our teeth into. As usual the actual mystery is full of twists and turns and dead ends and only the terrier like interrogations of the tenacious Kinsey can get the truth out.
An extremely enjoyable book and one of the high points of the alphabet series of books.
Great central character in KM and good characterisation throughout.
The books always allow time for a chuckle from time to time.
I really should say I fell in love with Sue. Grafton.
I hope to read each and every one of the Alpherbet series before I go.
Although this is supposed to be about the above book, my review would be the same for all the Kinsey Millhone stories.
All I can say is that Sue Grafton has created one of the best private eyes I have ever read - she is fiesty, clever, her humour is wonderful and I love her! Long may she live and her landlord Henry.
'F is for Fugitive', the sixth in the series, is more of the same. Kinsey being employed to investigate a crime, lots of fantastic characters and interesting settings and the obligatory twists and turns. If you liked the other novels in the series you will like this one.
What I especially liked about this novel was the ending, it really did manage to be haunting whereas some of the denouments in the previous novels in the series have been a little bit of a let down.
Another thing I liked was the setting. I got a real feel for the location and there was a real sense of atmosphere.
The fugitive doesn't actually figure all that large in the story but how he got to become one does. It wasn't that hard to guess who the baddie was but an interesting process to get to finding out.
Not a classic but an entertaining way to spend time.
