5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Read,
This review is from: G Is For Gumshoe (Pan Crime) (Paperback)Sue writes a very exciting mystery story and so far I have read all up to 'P' and every one maintained the same level of suspense and interest. What's more, unlike some mystery writers, all Sue Grafton's tales appear possible in the real world.
I recommend Sue's books to all lovers of mystery stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars G Is for Gumshoe,
This review is from: G Is For Gumshoe (Pan Crime) (Paperback)Of the first 7 books written in the Alphabet series of mysteries I would say without a shadow of a doubt that "G is for Gumshoe" is the best one written so far. This is for a number of reasons, the plot this time is divided into two sections that are given equal weight, so you have the main investigation and then you also have the happenings in Kinsey's personal life, which as I say this time do not play second fiddle to the main plot. What the book also benefits from are the re-appearances of several characters from earlier novels that are great fun to meet again.
The Dietz and Millhone combination makes for great fireworks especially as Dietz is basically a male version of Kinsey.
It's also great to meet some old faces again, apart from Henry we also catch up with Vera the man-eating claims manager from California Fidelity as well as Darcy who also works there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another enticing peek into the character of Kinsey Millhone,
This review is from: G Is For Gumshoe (Pan Crime) (Paperback)The investigative procedure plays second fiddle here to more insight into the private life of the emotionally shut down Ms Millhone. It's always a treat to get insight into some new aspect of her complex character. Having said that, this is a first rate investigation too, so bonus time all round.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and witty,
5.0 out of 5 stars A great character,
5.0 out of 5 stars Kinsey does it again,
This one gives her 3 happenings to cope with and re-introduces a character from a previous story. Kinsey is amazingly resilient, smart and at times laugh out loud funny. I am re-reading these stories in order and try to ration myself with other things in between. The other stuff sometimes serves to prove the difference between a story like this one that can hold your interest and pull you into the characters' lives, and the rest where sometimes I don't care at all what happens to the characters, even if I get to the end of the book!
Well done Sue Grafton and bring on H is for Homicide.
