This is the 15th installment of Kinsey Millhone, and this is the most personal case of all. 

Kinsey is contacted by Teddy Rich a storage locker scavenger who's come up with a box of old documents about herself that he is willing to sell her for $30.00. She talks him down to $20.00. In this book we find out all about Kinsey's first marriage to Mickey Magruder, a vice cop who lost everything when he was accused of a murder 15 years ago. Kinsey discovers that she may of been wrong about her ex-husband, so she decides to look into the case herself even though it will put her in danger.


I had not had the pleasure of reading all 15 novels by Sue Grafton, but if they are all like this one, they are wonderful, and I'll get the others to read. She has made a fan out of me. This book held me in suspense from the very beginning to the very end with lots of turns and plot twists to keep it fast paced and exciting. The events flowed through in a timely manner, and the ending tied up all the loose strings.
