First Sentence
It was Monday, December 27, and I was sitting in my office, trying to get a fix on the mood I was in, which was bad, bad, bad, comprised of equal parts irritation and uneasiness. Read the first page

I'm collecting all the Grafton books I am missing, this was one of them.

I loved it, the change in environment, the nasty characters, the loneliness of Kinsey during the holiday season, I could relate so much.

I'm always sad when I finish one of these books. Sue keep them coming, I know it's been a long haul, but your fans hope you finish the series to 'Z is for.....'

"E" is for Evidence is the fifth novel in the Alphabet mystery series by Sue Grafton featuring her loner, ex-cop private detective Kinsey Millhone. Alone over the Christmas holidays, Kinsey is hired to look into a routine fire insurance claim by her long time client, California Fidelity. The case involves a suspcious fire which burned down the warehouse of Wood/Warren, a hydrogen furnance manufacturer owned by the Woods, a prominent Santa Theresa family. When a check for five thousand dollars is mysteriously deposited into her personal bank account, Kinsey is accused of being on the take and is fired from the case by California Fidelity's straight arrow boss. Determined to prove her innocence and to find out who planted the incriminating evidence, Kinsey decides to work for herself and finds herself drawn deeper into the intricate dynamics of the wealthy Wood family. Any of the five adult Wood children could be involved in perpetuating the frame-up and this begins a guessing game of which one is involved in the case. Suddenly, her ex-husband Daniel arrives out of the blue after eight years. Then someone is killed and Kinsey finds her own life at risk.

As usual, the pleasure in reading Grafton's novel comes from the detailed and always entertaining descriptions of the offices and homes of her mostly wealthy Southern Californian suspects. She has a great feel for dipicting the attitudes and tastes of her characters. As usual, the wisecracking Kinsey is secretly, a little self-conscious in their presense, and she is often quick to remind us of the carelessness of her own appearence. I have read a lot of the Alphabet series and I get a little weary of passages describing Kinsey's lack of interest in clothes, and that she owns only one dress.

"E is for Evidence" is one of the better Kinsey Millhone books (the worst ones still earn a solid three stars in my rating). It's well-written and not at all lumpy: unlike most genre reads (and, in fact, many other books and movies), its second act is neither slow nor ponderous, but instead maintains the pace and excitement of the opening chapters, leaving us with only a brief lull before the inevitable plot-twisting conclusion.
Better yet, devoted readers of the Kinsey series will find this book an important turning point in the protagonist's life, illuminating a bit of her past as well as setting up the backdrop of several of the later books. Moreover, Grafton - creator in Kinsey of one of the most liberated women in our modern age of Bridget Joneses and See Janes Date - is once again ahead of her time (keep in mind, the book was written in 1988) in describing the characters and their relationships.
"E is for Evidence" is an excellent read, a must all Kinsey aficionados, and an excellent introduction to the series for readers who can't get their hands on "A is for Alibi". Make yourself a pimento-cheese sandwich and dig in!

In this Kinsey Millhone novel, "E" is definitely for evidence. There was a fire that took place at the warehouse which is a family business. The feeling was that it was arson that had been committed and Kinsey thinks so as well when she gets called on the case. Which member of the family would be that angry? Or is it an outsider who feels he was given a raw deal?
There is also murders going on as well. And Kinsey suspects one of the four kids. As she investigates further into the scenes, it might be too late for Kinsey herself.

I think that all of Grafton's fans will agree that picking up one of her books is like sitting down with a good friend to have a chat and a cup of coffee. I don't think anyone who reads these books doesn't feel some kind of kinship with Kinsey Milhone. When I first settle in and begin my read, by the third chapter or so I want to jump into the book, get her a bigger apartment, replace that black dress she keeps in the trunk of her car and help her find some kind of love life.
But before any of this can happen, Kinsey has to yet, once again, untangle a mess. This time, however, it's her own mess because she's being framed. A mysterious five thousand dollar deposit appears in her checking account and, while we all know Kinsey could use the money, there's no way she can sit still until she finds out where it came from. This will lead her on a search for insurance fraud after a thorough investigation of a fire site. Kinsey is familiar with the owners of this company as she went to high school with one of the girls in the family. As she's rekindling old acquaintances, things are heating up in her investigation. Fires are sizzling, bombs are exploding and things aren't what they seem to be -- what else is new?
So why only three stars you ask? I was really enjoying this book until I got to the end. By missing one sentence in a previous chapter, I didn't understand the ending when I got to it. Consequently, I had to go back and reread the last twenty or so pages just so it would make sense (which it did). I just don't like having to do that. When I read a book, especially one as simple as this alphabet series, the ending should all come together more easily than this one did. It shouldn't just hinge on one sentence. And, that's why "E" was an enigma to me. After I finished it the first time, I was still puzzled.
Now it's on to "F" with hopes that the ending will be more to my liking and that "F" will stand for "Fantastic."
