Rate this:
A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt who thinks he can beat the system. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring working for the Mob, racking up millions from stolen goods. A wandering husband, rich and ruthless. A dirty cop so entrenched on the force he is immune to exposure. A sinister gangster, conscienceless and brutal. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers, which may be worse than the pain of his loss. A private detective, Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose. And an elegant and powerful businessman whose dealings are defnitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web. V: Victim. Violence. Vengeance.

I don't know if it's me or the author, but for the first time I didn't finish one of her books (this one). There was a long sequence of a foolish person using bad judgment while gambling, we had a bit of Kinsey, and then there was another long section about another character. (I don't know the purpose of this section because I abandoned the book partway through this section.)

I prefer hearing about the main character, not watching a slow train-wreck of someone I don't like.

In all fairness, it's possible I'm moving away from this genre.

Not sure if it's because this is an abridged version but I was really disappointed. Kinsey's motivation didn't make sense (and she didn't seem to be acting in character) and there were definitely spots where things didn't make sense.

I really could not put this book down! There are many twists and turns before the grand finale...
I want more.

Am on the "hold" list when this book arrives to DBRL. It's Sue Grafton's latest, newest novel and worth waiting for. I'm just sorry that I'm #50 on the waiting list!!!!
