The Ocean Street Motel in Floral Beach, California, is located, oddly enough, on Ocean Street, a stone's throw from the sea wall that slants ten feet down toward the Pacific. Read the first page

I'm thoroughly enjoying the Kinsey Millhone mysteries, reading them literally from A to Z. Great writing, great plots, great storytelling, great characters, great murder mysteries, and I find Kinsey so much like myself.

"F is for Fugitive" is one of the better Kinsey mysteries: engrossing from the first chapter, it reads quickly and consistently. Although the book is 300 pages long - longer than most of Grafton's novels - there is no mid-story lull. It bypasses much of Kinsey's usual backdrop: the action takes place in a small town ninety miles away from Santa Teresa, so Henry Pitts, Rosie, the California Fidelity crew, and Kinsey's bachelorette life in her small apartment are peripheral or entirely absent from the story. The book focuses entirely on the mystery of an twenty-year-old murder in a small town and a cast of characters who all seem to have something to hide. It's quintessential Sue Grafton: suspenseful and well-written, a pleasure to read from beginning to end.

Seventeen years ago, Jean Timberlake (a promiscuous, six-weeks-pregnant high schooler) was murdered on the shore of Floral Beach, California, apparently by her ex-boyfriend, Bailey Fowler, who was consequently sent to prison. However, after repeated escapes--and spending much of his time out of the picture in this book--Kinsey Millhone, the 32-year-old no-nonsense private investigator, is hired by his father to investigate Jean's death and hopefully prove Bailey's innocence.
"'F' is for Fugitive" is yet another enjoyable Kinsey Millhone mystery with lots of quirky characters, particularly Bailey Fowler's family, who own the motel near where Jean was killed. It's also Kinsey's temporary residence while her apartment is being rebuilt after the happenings in the previous book ("'E' is for Evidence"). "'F' is for Fugitive" is relatively fast paced and has a more rounded ending than in some of Grafton's other books. And, as usual, I enjoyed Kinsey's sarcastic humor and refreshing first person narrative. Worth reading if you're into this alphabet mystery series.

Everyone knew the kind of girl Jean Timberlake was-ask anybosy in the sleepy surf town of Floral Beach and they'd say Jean was wild, looking for trouble. But she certainly wasn't looking for murder. She was found dead on the beach seventeen years ago, and a rowdy ex-boyfriend name Bailey Fowler was to blame. He was imprisoned, but then escaped. Now private eye Kinsey steps into a case that should never have closed. Kinsey creates new evidence that says Baily did not kill Jean, but someone else did. In fact, they are right there under Kinsey's nose.
A great read, and as usual, you wondered what would happen next.

This is yet another kick ... private eye novel by Sue Grafton. Kinsey is full of surprizes and the end will shock you. BEWARE there is another review that gives away the murderer, dated 5 Dec 2002. Even after reading who done it first the book was still good and worth reading. I just wanted to warn readers about review that gives it all away.

Sue Grafton has the touch. I'm not into heavy mysteries but she strikes just the right chord for readers who don't want to get too bogged down with confusion and puzzles. Kinsey Milhone is a gal most of us can relate to. She's a woman we call friend in another entertaining and interesting problem to be solved. I've read all the ABC mysteries and will stay with Sue Grafton to the end of the series! I recommend you do the same!

In this book Kinsey leaves the usual setting of Santa Teresa and goes to Floral Beach. She is hired by a man named Royce Fowler who wants Kinsey to help his son and prove his innocence. It turns out that Bailey, Royce's son, was imprisoned for the murder of his ex-girlfirend, Jean Timberlake, seventeen years ago. Bailey managed to escape jail but was caught again and is now being tried for the crime. Kinsey's job is to reopen the case and prove Bailey's innocence. While Kinsey goes in search for the killer she comes up with many different clues and possbile killers. The story captivates the reader until the end when the unexpecting killer is revealed.
This book is a very good detective story. It is well written and not difficult to read or follow. Sue Grafton does a great job of creating a realistc town and an even better job of describing the characters and several scenes in the book. The descriptions help you picture the scenes in your mind, making the story even more interesting. I highly recommend F is for Fugitive!
