More About the Author

New York Times-bestselling author Sue Grafton is published in twenty-eight countries and twenty-six languages--including Estonian, Bulgarian, and Indonesian. Books in her alphabet series, begun in 1982, are international bestsellers with readership in the millions. And like Raymond Chandler and Ross Macdonald, Grafton has earned new respect for the mystery form. Readers appreciate her buoyant style, her eye for detail, her deft hand with character, her acute social observances, and her abundant storytelling prowess. She has been named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America (2009) and is a recipient of the Ross Macdonald Literary Award (2004).

Sue Grafton has been married to Steve Humphrey for more than thirty years, and they divide their time between Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky, where she was born and raised. Grafton, who has three children and four grandchildren, loves cats, gardens, and good cuisine.

I first picked up "A is for Alibi" because I had previously heard Sue Grafton's name and I was desperately searching for a new book. I thought that the idea of a female P.I. was overplayed, but I read it anyway. I have been hooked on Sue Grafton since, and the D, E, F collection was the answer to my cravings for more. The story grabs you and doesn't let go until you are finished with the book. The suspense was so intense that I read the book for hours on end just to see how it would end. Kinsey Millhone is a very real character, you really relate to her, and eventually come to care about her, that is probably what I enjoyed most about the books. I'm up to "O is for Outlaw" now and have no intention of stopping.

Kinsey Milhone is funny and real. I love the way Sue Grafton shows her sense of humor through her heroine. Kinsey's no nonsense approach to life and her thoughts about the way things are and the way they should be are often so true that I find myself laughing out loud. Her haphazard lifestyle makes me both admire her and want to mother her. I agree with other reviewers who said that it isn't so much the mysteries that attract me to Grafton's books, but the people in them. I find myself caring about them as much as Kinsey does. I enjoy reading these books on weekends when I just want to relax with something entertaining and uncomplicated. They don't rival Ludlum for suspense and intrigue, but I love 'em--bring 'em on Sue!

The Sue Grafton alphabet series is a great set of detective novels from A to S (so far!). While some are better than others, they are all entertaining reads.

What makes this particular book worth purchasing (as well as the two other compilation hardcovers) is that you are getting three books for the price of one! This even beats the paperback prices.

The three separate hardcovers would run you about $54 and the paperbacks would be about $24. You do the math.

I definitely recommend getting the books in the version.

I love all of Sue Grafton books I have read (so far) - they keep me guessing usually to the very end!!

I was "introduced" to Sue Grafton novels by my niece in England. She had mentioned she felt like Kinsey Millhone when she walked on the beach near her home in Hampshire - all bundled up to keep warm.
I "recognize" the places mentioned in the novels - although names may be changed. I live close to Santa Barbara and now the area quite well which makes the stories even more enjoyable.

I have read all the alphabet books to date. They have all been excellent. I'm up to U is For Undertow. I have been an avid Sue Grafton fan since the beginning. I especially love Henry. I did not have these 3 books in my collection, even though I had read them a long time ago so decided to purchase them in a set. Much cheaper than purchasing them separately. I'm enjoying reading these 3 all over again. Can't wait for her next one.

I had previously read a few other books in this series. It wasn't until I read three novels back to back ("DEF") that I realized how rote and derivative her books are. They all follow the same pattern. Interesting set up. Tons of red herrings and then, a last minute deux ex machina. Meh. Probably won't be reading any more in the series.

Loved this addition to the Kinsey Millhone series. Having all 3 books together was fantastic! The more I get to know Kinsey the more I want to know. Miss Grafton's writing of a flawed, yet acclimplished charachter reminds me of the Jesse Stone series. Very addicting!
