Description of this Book

Sue Grafton is back with the twenty-fifth book in her Alphabet series, as Kinsey Millhone, discovers what Y is for ...The darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone, Y begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate - and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns in evidence for the state and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace. Now, it's 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents - until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That's when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he's not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find ...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This will leave readers both relishing another masterful entry and ruing the near-end of this series. Prime Grafton * Booklist * Grafton once again proves herself a superb storyteller * Publishers Weekly * Grafton constructs an intricate plot following two time lines with at least a dozen characters in play while rarely slowing the pace * Library Journal * I'm going to miss Kinsey Millhone. Ever since the first of Sue Grafton's Alphabet mysteries, A Is For Alibi, came out in 1982, Kinsey has been a good friend and the very model of an independent woman, a gutsy Californian P.I. rocking a traditional man's job . . . It's Kinsey herself who keeps this series so warm and welcoming. She's smart, she's resourceful, and she's tough enough to be sensitive on the right occasions * New York Times *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
