2.0 out of 5 stars V is for VaVaVoom Vanished, 3 Dec 2012
This review is from: V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Mystery 22) (Kindle Edition)
I suspect Sue Grafton has written this one as a chore. I missed Kinsey's central role and her first person narrative but I missed the sparkle and charm of books A-U even more. Technically superb writing - I don't think this author could write badly if she tried - but the magic has gone. I can imagine after so many books in a series it could become a real burden to have to write yet another; it happens with lots of series. Out of loyalty I'll read W but if it isn't 'W is for Welcome back, Kinsey' then I'm done with this series. BTW anybody else find it inconsistent that Kinsey is so morally outraged by shoplifting yet in the very next chapter she is so kind to a burglar because he paid her fee with a set of lockpicks so she could do some B and E when needed in any of her cases? I think the real Kinsey would have gone after the shoplifter but without the rant.

You make a very good point bookjunkie. Although I love Sue Grafton and Kinsey, I was most upset by the fact that she denounced the shoplifter as a felon costing the public thousands of dollars, but then decided that Dante was a 'good man' and 'a man of his word' even though he was the guy actually running the shoplifting ring and making millions from it. Very disappointed in her lack of judgement.
