Format: Mass Market Paperback
A worthy addition to Grafton's series and an interesting change of pace. Although it starts out slow, by the end of the book I was fascinated with the plot and characters and was sorry to see it end. I would not recommend this one to an uninitiated Grafton reader, but "A is for Alias" is the natural starting point anyway. The sideshow parts of the these novels such as Henry, Rosie, Diehl (when will he come back?), and Kinsey's lost family add a lot of charm and familiarity for the return reader. Kinsey Millhone continues to be an enigma that I enjoy getting to know better with each installment. I also find the historical timeline of the series very appealing. My being almost the same age as Kinsey makes the mid-eighties setting of the books and her late sixties coming of age a sentimental trip down memory lane for me.

I enjoyed this book. It isnt one of my favorites basically due to the "too tidy" ending. It wrapped up way to quick and easy in my opinion. I was hoping for a bit more on her family ties, yet those were left far behind about midway through the book. More will come up in her next novels, I am sure. I liked the idea of the cold case. It was interesting to go along for the ride on what little evidence they had and such a huge gap in time from the scene of the crime until present time.

Kinsey Milhone is up to her old tricks...eating at Rosie's, visiting with Henry and jogging in the wee hours. This time she has taken on two old "gentlemen" and they search for the killer of a young girl. The case is "cold" from 1969. The two men are a lesson plan in how not to live. Drinking, smoking and eating badly...they are a hoot. Kinsey's Aunt and cousin have entered her life and her grandmother looms large. as with all of the alphabet books, it's a delight. Kinsey is an original character and after all these years I feel she's a friend.

Americans have had a long long love affair with Kinsey Millhone, private investigator. The Sue Grafton creation has graced bestseller lists since her A IS FOR ALIBI premiere 16 letters ago. While other detectives have moved on to cell phones and Internet searches, Kinsey's still hacking away on pay phones and typewriters, her life frozen in the 1980s. She's a 37-year-old PI who comes pretty close to hardboiled, if that's possible in Santa Teresa, California. She's proven remarkably durable through books that tend to blend together in a nonetheless satisfying mix.
If you haven't already heard, here's the lowdown on Kinsey. Orphaned at age 5, divorced twice by her mid-20s and happily on her own these days save for dinners with her feisty octogenarian landlord, Kinsey pretty much does as she pleases. In Q IS FOR QUARRY, she accepts an assignment from a pair of near-retired police officers, Lieutenant Con Dolan and Detective Stacey Oliphant, who want to reopen a Jane Doe case left languishing for the last 18 years. Quicker than you can say "the butler did it," Kinsey¹s enmeshed in another adventure. The trio's legwork eventually leads them to the tiny town of Blythe, where the auto-shop-owning McPhee family becomes the center of the inquiry. Once the body has been identified, Kinsey sets about cracking the case, with another fatality to deal with along the way.
What¹s grown familiar about Kinsey's tales --- well, aside from her frequent forays to McDonald¹s, refusal to accept her recently discovered extended family and general bull-headedness --- is the utter everydayness to them. Grafton doesn't have the gift for words of a Jonathan Franzen or a Sandra Cisneros, but she'll detail them to the death.

This book took me 4 days to plough through. Of over 380 pages don't think there was dialogue on 200. I felt it was a history of a lot of small towns in southern California and certainly didn't need the information about all the bars and restaurants.The same goes for the description of the characters, i.e. facial hair, etc as well as clothing and the conditons in their living quarters. The story line was weak and certainly not of the caliber of previous books. A disappointment.

Sue Grafton has taken an unsolved murder from decades ago and used it as a basis for her latest alphabet mystery. Q deserves its place of honor in the Grafton alphabet. It is a terrific mystery with a complicated plot and the excellent characterizations readers have grown to expect from this writer. Q IS FOR QUARRY is a amazing accomplishment and I hope it helps solve the actual unsolved murder at its base.

"O Is for Quarry" by Sue Grafton is an another entertaining story in this unique series. The characters are fun, the dialogue sharp and fast-pace, and, the plot exciting. A wonderful combination.

Format: Hardcover
Having read all of the Grafton books, I would say this is one of her better efforts. Perhaps, because it is based on an actual event. The reader will guess the culprits before Kinsey does, but she is busy learning about her own family back ground and maybe not paying enough attention to the investigation. She seems very trusting of the female characters she encounters which seems out of character for her.The two older policemen are an intersting addition to the book and very believable in their quest to close the file on this case. The book does not move as fast as other Grafton books, there is a lot of information about desert area in which the story is set, which is immaterial to the story; but interesting to know.
