Q is For Quarry:
This was quite a long book in the Alphabet series but one I greatly enjoyed. Kinsey hooks up with 2 retired cop pals to help them see if they can close a cold case. A girl's body had been found 18 years previously and she had never been identified nor anyone convicted of killing her.
It was very well put together and a lot of the characters were interesting people she encounters along the way too.
One comment made me smile about Kinsey's version of digital research-walking her fingers through a phone book !! Hehehe....
A postscript to this particular book was that this book was based on a true story and this girl was never identified either and Sue Grafton tells what she knows of her story which is very close indeed to the fiction she created and also added a forensic artist's mockup of what she looked like. So who knows, perhaps in time she can rest in peace.
I've not got around to the R is For Ricochet yet.
