I have read a few of the alphabet series, in no particular order, and thought every one of them brilliant. I love Kinsey Millhone, she is flawed enough to be funny, believable and human. This outing had me hooked from the off, and when she found Guy Malek I felt like I knew the man. How I wished they would get together! I was so sad at the events that unfolded, and the cruel twist as the truth about Guy's honour among his dishonest brothers was revealed. When Kinsey found the note in her car, I nearly wept- but read the book to find out everything for yourself. You won't regret it- the characters are so real, if you will excuse the tired cliche, I feel as if I know them by now. Guy Malek is another one to add to the list of people I forget aren't real and never have been.
