But this is not routine and the deeper Kinsey digs the trickier things get. The client tries to call Kinsey off, an accusing husband surfaces, and a double murder turns the case sinister. Kinsey feels adrift in a fog of distortion, where nothing, except danger, is quite what it seems.
Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

"Unconventional, unsentimental, Millhone's a fine addition to the ranks of fictional private eyes." (The Houston Chronicle)
"Back again for B is for Burglar"
I actually had not heard this since it was first out on Books on Tape a looooong time ago and wanted to hear it again! To me it was actually fun to hear the old Books on Tape stuff at the very start of the book.
Although still a good story the second time through, I can really see (hear) why so many reviewers were not very happy with the early books just because of the reader Ms. Peiffer.
Although she reads the story fine, as with several other readers of various books, she just doesn't seem to have the correct or expected 'tonal quality' for the character in this story, in my opinion!!!
If you're just discovering the "Alphabet" series, I'd still recommend giving it a listen, or, especially in the early stages of this series, get the abridged version and hear the reader that now has become the ONLY reader of the series for the most part, abridged or unabridged, Judy Kaye!
She IS Kinsey Millhone!
"I Did Finish It"
I did finish this book, even after reading "A is for Alibi." But I won't get any of the others by this author. After reading David Baldacci's books, this is just too simple. The Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt are lighter than Baldacci and much preferred over this author. But this is just my unsolicited opinion...
"Never a waste!"
Anything by Sue Grafton is worth the credits or cash! Kinsey Milhone has got to be one of my all time favorite recurring characters in fiction. Thanks Sue!
"I enjoy Sue Grafton's Books!"
Great! I enjoy Sue Grafton's Books! I love a mystery that keeps you guessing!
"Not worth it"
This plot and book drew out painfully. Ugh. I had to speed it up to get through it. It was painful. I don't recommend it at all.
"B is for bravo"
Enjoyed this book hated to go to work as I just wanted to finish this book. Lindsay iris a great character and I love her spunk
"B is for burglar next up C is for Corps"
B is for burglar the second book in the series between A&B I think I'll be moving on to see and hope it the series continues to be enjoyable.
I love Kinsey Millhone. She's down to earth and believable. Look forward to continuing on with the alphabet mystery's.
the story is great. Keeps you guessing. Lots of twists and turns. The narrator is OK. Much better than the narrator used for her first novel alibi.
"Not as strong as Number one but still a winner"
Audio books are a great time saver.
All of the "ABC" Grafton books are about the same story line. I love the crazy cast of characters!
