While in her most recent adventures (N Is for Noose, O Is for Outlaw) Kinsey has acquired new digs, an extended family, and a few more gray hairs, in this one (which takes place some time in the mid-'80s), she's 36, still living in the remodeled garage that was blown up in an earlier novel. Easier than a facelift, and while Sue Grafton is a solid enough writer to pull it off, dedicated Kinsey fans will miss the more complex and multidimensional character who aged so ruefully and interestingly in the '90s. This isn't Grafton's strongest case; it's hard to care about any of Purcell's women or his associates. More exciting is the secondary plot, which involves a handsome landlord who offers Kinsey the new office space she's been seeking and turns out to be a lot more trouble than she bargained for. Despite its somewhat plodding pace and the echo of a more evolved heroine that rings through its pages, Grafton's many fans will probably shoot P Is for Peril right to the top of the bestseller list. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This would rate 5 stars except for the price. I think the series is overpriced when I look at other books. While I have purchased them, I only read one periodically.Published 17 minutes ago by Amazon Customer
Sue Grafton is a gifted writer of detective stories. This was my first of her books to read but will certainly not be my last. I hope to read through her entire alphabet!! Read morePublished 20 hours ago by Merry Sunshine
Sue Grafton is my go to vacation / airplane trip reads. Totally engrossing and fun, not a serious book.Published 3 days ago by Eat More Veggies
Hated the ending, I was enjoying the book until then. A bad ending can ru ok n the whole book. I have to say this is the first Sue Grafton book I didn't like.Published 9 days ago by anom
As with Patterson's Women's Murder Club series, I really like revisiting the characters. Kinsey Millhone is just as independent and cranky as always, but she gets the job done.Published 10 days ago by M. T. Fabrick
