OK - but not one of the BEST of the Series
on July 19, 2014
Well, I'm a fan of this series, but this one's probably my LEAST favorite of the Sue Grafton mysteries. All the Q-words seemed forced and phony. The plot was quite weak and uninteresting. There seemed to be a lot of "filler" and low-mood as she helped the two aged cops - sick and dying, in and out of the hospital ... all that coughing. OK - I am reading all of the Grafton books, and I see that they do vary - from book to book, in quality and interest. That's ok ... The characters are interesting, Grafton writes well, and I generally get a "good read" from her alphabet series.
