'Kinsey Millhone (is) just about the gutsiest as well as the shrewdest of her kind.' Observer --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey's case goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers, the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey's clues begin to form a capital M -- not for missing, but for murder: And plenty of it.

The plot is very clear, but I feel that I missed a lot by listening to the abridged version. For example, I never really "got into" the characters. Read morePublished on June 22 2003 by the_student
