release date: Jul 26, 2022
E Is for Evidence & F Is for Fugitive
The next two novels in the #1 New York Times bestselling Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton, E Is for Evidence & F Is for Fugitive... In E Is for Evidence, P.I. Kinsey Millhone finds herself taking on a case that places her career on the line. And if that isn''t enough to keep her busy, her ex-husband, who walked out on her eight years ago, pops back on the radar. It all begins with a $5,000 deposit made into Kinsey''s bank account. Problem is she''s not the one who deposited the money. But when she''s accused of being on the take in an industrial arson case, Kinsey realizes someone is framing her. But with new evidence—and corpses—surfacing around her, she''s going to have to act quickly to clear her name before she loses her career, her reputation—and quite possibly her life... In F Is for Fugitive, the escaped suspect of a teen murder resurfaces after seventeen years in the seemingly-idyllic Floral Beach, California. Believing in his son''s innocence, Bailey''s father wants Kinsey to find Jean''s real killer. But most of the residents in this tight-knit community are convinced Bailey strangled Jean. So why are they so reluctant to answer Kinsey''s questions? If there''s one thing Kinsey''s got plenty of it''s persistence. And that''s exactly what it''s going to take to crack the lid on this case. As Kinsey gets closer to solving Jean''s murder, the more dirty little secrets she uncovers in a town where everyone has something to hide—and a killer will kill again to keep the past buried.

In "D" is for Deadbeat, a man calling himself Alvin Limardo approaches Kinsey with a job that seems cut-and-dried: locate a kid who''d done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. It''s only later, after he stiffs her for her retainer, that Kinsey finds out his name is actually John Dagget, and his an ex-con, inveterate liar, and now dead. Kinsey soon realizes that Daggett had an awful lot of enemies—but would any of them go as far as murder?

In this #1 New York Times bestseller in Sue Grafton''s Alphabet series, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has her hands full when a job that should be easy money takes a turn for the worse.

Now, at thirty-two, she''s about to be paroled, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence. Her father wants to be sure Reba stays straight, stays home and away from the drugs, the booze, and the gamblers... It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the niceties of her parole. Maybe a week’s work. Nothing untoward—the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good. But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than twenty-four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling round...

And before long at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity. ''And just like that,'' she says, ''the lid to Pandora''s box flew open.

"N" is for Noose
"SMART AND SASSY" (New York Times) P.I. Kinsey Millhone is at it again in "N" is for Noose—another thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton Kinsey Millhone should have done something else--she should have turned the car in the direction of home. Instead, she was about to put herself in the gravest jeopardy of her career. Tom Newquist had been a detective in the Nota Lake sheriff''s office--a tough, honest cop respected by everyone. When he died suddenly, the townsfolk were saddened but not surprised: Just shy of sixty-five, Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign. Newquist''s widow didn''t doubt the coroner''s report. But what Selma couldn''t accept was not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life. What was it that had made him prowl restlessly at night, that had him brooding constantly? Selma Newquist wanted closure, and the only way she''d get it was if she found out what it was that had so bedeviled her husband. Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless, like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead, she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own."N" Is for Noose: a novel in which Kinsey Millhone becomes the target and an entire town seems in for the kill.

"D" is for Deadbeat
Sue Grafton''s #1 New York Times bestselling series, reissued for a whole new generation of readers! D IS FOR DEADBEAT He called himself Alvin Limardo, and the job he had for Kinsey was cut-and-dried: locate a kid who''d done him a favor and pass on a check for $25,000. It was only later, after he''d stiffed her for her retainer, that Kinsey found out his name was Daggett. John Daggett. Ex-con. Inveterate liar. Chronic drunk. And dead. The cops called it an accident--death by drowning. Kinsey wasn''t so sure. Pulled into the detritus of a dead man''s life, Kinsey soon realizes that Daggett had an awful lot of enemies. There''s the daughter who grew up with a cheating drunk for a father, and the wife who''s become a religious nut in response to an intolerable marriage. There''s the lady who thought she was Mrs. Daggett--and has the bruises to prove it--only to discover the legal Mrs. D. And there are the drug dealers out $25,000. But most of all, there are the families of the five people John Daggett killed, victims of his wild, drunken driving. The D.A. called it vehicular manslaughter and put him away for two years. The families called it murder and had very good reason to want John Daggett dead. Deft, cunning, and clever, this latest Millhone mystery also confronts some messy truths, for, as Kinsey herself says, "Some debts of the human soul are so enormous only life itself is sufficient forfeit"--but as she''d be the first to admit, murder is not a socially acceptable solution.

"F" is for Fugitive
#1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton crafts a thriller set in a town so small that P.I. Kinsey Millhone wonders just how private her investigation can be . . . F is for Fugitive Floral Beach wasn''t much of a town: six streets long and three deep, its only notable feature a strip of sand fronting the Pacific. It was on that sandy beach seventeen years ago that the strangled body of Jean Timberlake had been found. The people of floral Beach didn''t pay a whole lot of mind to past history, especially when Bailey Fowler, the self-confessed killer, had been properly processed and convicted. They weren''t even unduly concerned when, a year after the murder, Fowler walked away from the men''s prison at San Luis Obispo, never to be seen again. After all, everyone knew Jean had been a wild kid. "Like mother, like daughter," some said--though never within hearing of Shana Timberlake, who, whatever her faults, still mourned her murdered child. And then, by sheer fluke, the cops stumbled on Bailey Fowler. And a case seventeen years dead came murderously to life again. For Royce Fowler, old and sick with not much time left, his son''s reappearance was the chance to heal an old wound. For Kinsey Millhone, the case was a long shot, but she agreed to take it on. She couldn''t know then it would lead her to probe the passions buried just below the surface of family relations, where old wounds fester and the most cherished emotions become warped until they fuse into deadly, soul-destroying time bombs.

"O" is for Outlaw
“Grafton keeps pulling out surprises- and pulling us in.” —Entertainment Weekly on "O" is for Outlaw Through fourteen books, fans have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone''s past: a morsel here, a dollop there. We know of the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one remained a blip on the screen until now. The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. Last week he bought a stack. They had stuff in them--Kinsey stuff. For thirty bucks, he''ll sell her the lot. Kinsey''s never been one for personal possessions, but curiosity wins out and she hands over a twenty (she may be curious but she loves a bargain). What she finds amid childhood memorabilia is an old undelivered letter. It will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of that first marriage, about the honor of that first husband, about an old unsolved murder. It will put her life in the gravest peril."O" Is for Outlaw: Kinsey''s fifteenth adventure into the dark side of human nature.

"H" is for Homicide

release date: Apr 01, 2010
"H" is for Homicide
His name was Parnell Perkins, and until shortly after midnight, he''d been a claims adjustor for California Fidelity. Then someone came along and put paid to that line of work. And to any other. Parnell Perkins had been shot at close range and left for dead in the parking lot outside California Fidelity''s offices. To the cops, it looked like a robbery gone sour. To Kinsey Millhone, it looked like the cops were walking away from the case. She didn''t like the idea that a colleague and sometime drinking companion had been murdered. Or the idea that his murderer was loose and on the prowl. It made her feel exposed. Vulnerable. Bibianna Diaz was afraid for her life. If there was one thing she knew for sure, it was that you didn''t cross Raymond Maldonado and live to tell the tale. And Bibianna had well and truly crossed him, running out on his crazy wedding plans and going into hiding in Santa Teresa--light years away from the Los Angeles barrio that was home turf to Raymond and his gang. Now she needed money to buy time, to make sure she''d put enough space between them. And the quickest way she knew to get money was to work an insurance scam--just like the ones Raymond was running down in L.A. The trouble was, Bibianna picked California Fidelity as her mark. And it wasn''t long before her name surfaced in one of Parnell Perkins''s open files and Kinsey was on her case. But so, too, was her spurned suitor, Raymond Maldonado. He had a rap sheet as long as his arm, a hair-trigger temper that was best left untested, and an inability to take no for an answer. He also had Tourette''s syndrome, which did nothing to smooth out the kinks in his erratic and often violent behavior. All in all, Raymond Maldonado was not someone to spend a lot of time hanging out with. Unfortunately for Kinsey, she didn''t have a lot of choice in the mater. Not after the love-sick Raymond kidnapped Bibianna. Like it or not, Kinsey was stuck babysitting Bibianna along with Raymond and his macho crew. You might say she was a prisoner of love. It may be Kinsey Millhone''s most complicated and risk-filled case. It certainly is Sue Grafton''s wittiest venture into low-life crime. It''s "H" is for Homicide, and it confirms yet again that Kinsey Millhone is "a wonderful character, tough but not brutish, resourceful and sensitive, a fit knight to walk those mean streets with her male predecessors" (the Los Angeles Times) and that Sue Grafton is "a heads-up delight" (Detroit News).
