"Intelligent, fast-paced, and filled with memorable characters...Kinsey remains as engaging as ever."--The New York Times Book ReviewPHENOMENAL PRAISE FOR THE MYSTERY NOVELS OF #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHORSUE GRAFTON"Exceptionally entertaining...an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice." --San Francisco Chronicle "Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire...P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator...are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes." --The Buffalo News "Once a fan reads one of Grafton's alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found."--Los Angeles Herald Examiner "Millhone is a refreshingly strong and resourceful female private eye."--Library Journal "Tough but compassionate...There is no one better than Kinsey Millhone."--Best Sellers "A woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner."--Newsweek "Lord, how I like this Kinsey Millhone...The best detective fiction I have read in years."--The New York Times Book Review "Smart, tough, and thorough...Kinsey Millhone is a pleasure."--The Bloomsbury Review "Kinsey is one of the most persuasive of the new female operatives...She's refreshingly free of gender cliches. Grafton, who is a very witty writer, has also given her sleuth a nice sense of humor--and a set of Wonder Woman sheets to prove it."--Boston Herald "What grandpa used to call a class act."--Stanley Ellin "Smart, sexual, likable and a very modern operator."--Dorothy Salisbury Davis "Kinsey's got brains and a sense of humor."--Kirkus Reviews
