The Kinsey character was one of a kind but not for long! S is for Silence is extremely disappointing. The plot was weak and the Kinsey character is becoming drab. Where's her wit and hilarious one-liners? She has become passive and dull and her adventures mild and predictable. Sue Grafton is changing the character's personality, lifestyle and adventures. Has anyone else noticed that all of Kinsey's misadventures are slowly disconnecting from the best parts of the series? Where are the regular day in and day out characters Henry, Rosie and her recently discovered cousins? What's going on here? I'm applauding Janet Evanovich for staying true and blue to what the readers love...consistent entertainment.
I liked this entry in the series but I do think that the motive was not clear and it felt like Padgett was a last minute winner of the "who is the killer" contest ! I also wanted Kathy to get a bigger come uppance than just to lose some of her cushy lifestyle - she was a pain at 14 and a greater pain apparently as time went on !
