A confused Kinsey,
This review is from: T is for Trespass (Paperback)
This being the 20th novel by Sue Grafton and her PI Kinsey Millhone and it is starting to wear a bit thin. Not the book which is thicker than ever, but the plot. It seems to be some trend that books shold be thick and if you do not have material enought just fill it with unrelated observations. In previous books it has been strictly from KM's angle but this time there are chapters soley focusing on the culprit. Just like having the reasoning for the crimes committed spred out all over the book.
The main focus is on the neighbour Gus (close to 90) who after an unfortunate fall needs someone helping him out with the daily chores. Needless to say the nurse employed is trying to rob him blind and this is the task for KM to prevent.
There are some sidetracks which could have been better explored and summed up better as the main plot could have been cut into half without loosing anything.
Anyway the language is as always in the SG books light and the reading is swift. But please make "U" shorter and more to the point.
