The new Kinsey Millhone novel from the #1 New York Times - bestselling author.

Kinsey on Kinsey: "I know there are people who believe you should forgive and forget. For the record, I'd like to say I'm a big fan of forgiveness as long as I'm given the opportunity to get even first."
-from V is for Vengeance

A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A dying old man cared for by the son he pummeled mercilessly. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring racking up millions in stolen goods. A brutal and unscrupulous gangster. A wandering husband, rich and powerful. A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt thinking he can beat the system. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers that may be worse than the pain of his loss. An elegant but ruthless businessman whose dealings are definitely outside the law: the spider at the center of the web.
And Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose.

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!!!!
