Here together for the first time in audio are the three mysteries that started it all, introducing sexy, savvy ex-cop turned P.I. Kinsey Millhone to listeners everywhere.
"A" Is for Alibi
Nikki Fife, convicted of murdering her husband Laurence, is out on parole after eight years of prison. Now, she hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed Laurence. The trail will twist and turn until finally turning back on itself, bringing Kinsey face-to-face with a killer cunning enough to get away with murder.
"B" Is for Burglar
Elaine Boldt is missing, and her sister wants Kinsey Millhone to find her. It seems to be a routine job - until Kinsey is ordered to drop the investigation just as she discovers that days before Elaine's disappearance, her next-door neighbor and bridge partner had been murdered. Now, the killer is still at large...and looking for Kinsey.
"C" Is for Corpse
Kinsey Millhone is recruited to help Bobby Callahan, a young man struggling back to life after his Porsche was forced to take a near-fatal nose dive over the edge of a canyon. Three days later Bobby is dead and Kinsey must capture a cold-blooded killer before he strikes again.

Thoroughly enjoyed these stories in audio. Read them years ago - so they were familiar, but mostly forgotten. Recommend for those who don't want to wade through hours of storytelling. These are shortish, suspenseful, cracking stories. Well narrated.
"Good stories and plots"
This is our second time listening to the alphabet series. The ABC colection is kind of short. I like the unedited editions better but listening while you are driving makes the miles fly by.
The plots are well thought out and give you a good story without loosing you in a lot of technical stuff.
Yes. Love Judy Kaye.
I don't think of These stories as moving. They do have a time of sad and somber and funny and dark but they are not what I call a good tear jerker.
My wife and I are going to listen to the whole series again. I started listening to them in 1999 when I was on the road and now I can listen to them again and it's like a new story again.
"Can't find second book "B""
Aggravating, I see no way to go directly to the B or C books. With out listening to A first.
"Love the book, as well as Narrarator"
I wil be buying the reest
Mysteries do that to ya!
laugh & cliffhanger
Will be buying the rest of series
"THE MYSTERY ALPHABET BEGINS"
I LOVE THESE BOOKS FROM THE "GET GO". JUDY KAYE MAKES THE MAIN CHARACTER (KINSEY) COME ALIVE AS A REAL PI. VERY ENJOYABLE LISTENING AND WHAT A GOOD DEAL TO GET THREE BOOKS IN ONE!!
"Super set of Books"
I enjoyed them this time as much as the first time. A great series of books.
"Revisiting an old favorite"
I read this series many years ago and stopped at J. I'm taking it back up again and thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with Kinsey again.
"Great detective series with smart female hero."
This series was easy to get into and had a great pace. I recommend it.
"C is for corpse issues"
There were issues at the last 15 minutes of C is is for corpse. It skipped like an old cd and I missed the entire ending. Either please reload it give me a credit. Thanks. Kristi
This is three books in one. Full of suspension and mystery. The narrator is fantastic!
Plot doesn't hold together well and the heroine is trite and unattractive. won't try another.
