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

4.0 out of 5 stars pivotal installment and a great read Sept. 8 2003
By erica
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"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!

3.0 out of 5 stars "E" IS FOR ENIGMA May 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
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."

31/2 stars really.
This is only the third Grafton I have read - I read the first a month back. And I intend finishing the series as soon as I can (or what's available in the library anyway). The protagonist, Kinsey Millhone, is a character that invites comparisons with Philip Marlowe. Chandler was dark and classy (great dialogue) - Grafton is sad-funny, and very contemporary. The way she writes has me convinced that she cannot write a bad book - and I will never hesitate to pick up any of her books.
As for this book - its quite good - probably the best of the series so far (of the 3 I have read - C, D being the others). The narrartive flows evenly. In crime/adventure novels, I often skip the parts where characters indulge in psycho analysis, dissecting their misery (and/or that of others), mental state, and concentrate on the action instead. But not when the writing is as impressive as in this book. This is surely pop-writing - but manages to rise a little above the genre into something more artistic. And Kinsey is lovable.
But hey, if you have't read Ray Chandler - I'd point you there first - anyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Grafton Aug. 15 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read the entire alphabet series over the years and, quite honestly, have been disappointed with the last few episodes. I ended up with a copy of "E" last week and decided to give it a reread. Now I remember why I was excited about Kinsey Millhone.
"E" is for Evidence has some great elements. First, Kinsey is her own client - investigating why she's been framed for insurance fraud in a warehouse arson. Without client confidentiality rules, Kinsey has so unusual elbow room. Her search leads her into her past. The warehouse was owned by the family of a high school friend and Kinsey plays the old school tie for all its worth. To complicate matters, it's Christmas and her landlord and "cook" are both gone. In this vulnerable moment, enter Kinsey's second ex-husband.
Many of the other reviewers complain about the slow pacing in the first half of the book. I didn't notice any problems -- and with books on tape, when it drags, it really drags. The plot certainly has high energy by the conclusion. There are plenty of twists and turns. The conclusion is all I ask of a mystery - more or less unpredictible but with just enough clues planted along the way that the solution doesn't come from left field.
