In "N" is for Noose, Kinsey is letting herself in for more than she can handle. Selma Newquist lost her husband in an untimely heart attack as he was driving home. Before the event though, Tom Newquist was deeply disturbed about something, and Selma knew he was. But about what, she wondered? So, Kinsey is hired to find out the secrets of what might have really happened, and in so doing, she gets into a lot of trouble. As she digs deeper and deeper, someone has it in for her to make her stop. She gets physically attacked once, but if she doesn't stop her probing, it may happen again.
A good book overall, and worth the reading time.

By now, Grafton's heroine, Kinsey Millhone, is well established amongst the ranks of female detectives. This book possibly isnlt the best of the series.
I found it a little disappointing in that it plods somewhat and I wasnlt at all guessing to the end - to me the perpetrator stood out a mile off. I found some of the peripheral characters just plain boring.

A woman wanted to know why her recently dead husband was under stress. She was willing to hire Kinsey Milhone to find the reason. Her husband Tom Newquist had not been sleeping well. The job was in the vicinity of Carson City. It was the sort of place where people might wear a combination of snow and western clothing. The widow of the dead man, Selma, was very helpful. Tom Newquist did not smile. In his picture he had the look of a police officer. Before his death by heart attack he was not necessrily a healthy man. He drank, he smoked, he was overweight, and he was strait-laced. He saw the world in rigid terms. He was a good investigator by all reports. His sister believed he tried too hard to please his wife who was a snob. Kinsey was assaulted and felt herself going into shock. She received help getting to the hospital. I did not realize that investigators liked to dig into old unsolved cases, but apparently they do. Tom Newquist was probably involved in such a venture when he died. Uncharacteristically he ate away from home just prior to his death. An unidentified woman was seen within a quarter mile of his pick up truck parked by the side of the road. The break in the case came from someone in Nota Lake who believed the dead man had an interest in a female investigator from another sheriff's department.

Kinsey has just come back from playing nurse to her sometime-lover Dietz who has undergone knee replacement surgery. As a favor to him, she promises to look at a case in the small town of Nota Lake, where a detective named Tom Newquist has just died of a heart attack. His widow feels that her husband died under suspicious circumstances and that she cannot rest until she finds out what really happened. Kinsey decides to take the case and begins interviewing the local people who might be involved. They turn out to be an unfriendly bunch and before she knows it, she suffers some injuries at the hands of a mysterious attacker. That's just the beginning, and before long Kinsey feels like a real outcast among the citizens of the tiny town. She continues to investigate to see what really prompted Tom's death and whether there was foul play involved. This book is a little more predictable than some in the series, but Kinsey's adventures always make for a good read.

Unlike the preceding 13 novels in this series, Millhone is having a week of rather bad hair days in this one and it shows. It spite of her usually optimistic approach to life, Millone is pessimistic throughout. I would hope this isn't what the rest of the series is going to be like.
Not a particularly good novel.

I think most of us here rate a book on the basis of our own tastes--what kinds of books we personally enjoy reading. Sue Grafton's alphabet series really isn't about non-stop action or heart-stopping adventure. What it about is one of the most quirky, engaging characters in modern mysteries: Kinsey Milhone. I've read the whole series to date, and in the process I have come to know and care about Kinsey. As each book comes out, I look forward to finding out what Kinsey is up now; and just as importantly, how she sees her life and the other characters that populate her world. Sue Grafton has crafted Kinsey with a deft touch and a generous dollop of wry humor. For my reading tastes, "N is for Noose" is another delightful installment in the series. I just hope Sue Grafton will start in on numbers when she runs out of alphabet, so this series can go on and on.

I actually like the slow and frustrating investigation by Kinsey. The plot pulled me right in - all the agonizing twists and turns. Some new facets of Kinseys charatcter were exposed, I thought. The ending is - ummm - below average. I agree with some reviewers that is it perhaps too surprising - the final explanation adds up - but only just - not good enough, really.
