Description

She's every lover's feisty girlfriend. She's every father's courageous daughter. She's every woman's tough, vulnerable, and spirited alter ego.She's Kinsey Millhone, familiar to millions of readers around the globe, and she's back in full stride in P is for Peril, her latest venture into the darker side of the human soul. Mordant, mocking, and deceptively low-key, hers is a voice we know we can trust, from a character we've come to love.Through fifteen novels, Sue Grafton has gone from strength to strength, never writing the same book twice. So it's no surprise that she has taken on new territory in her sixteenth, this time entering the world of noir. It's a world cast in shades of black amid shafts of steel and silver, a shadow land in which the mysterious disappearance of a prominent physician leads Kinsey into a danger-filled maze of duplicity and double-dealing as she taps into the intricacies of a cunning Medicare fraud.P is for Peril: the novel in which Millhone stakes her life on a thin thread of intuition because the facts glint elusively out of reach and only guesses offer any shot at the truth."Unlike many detective series, Grafton's seems only to get better each time out," wrote Entertainment Weekly, and P is for Peril is a case in point. Pushing herself, reaching further with each new book, Sue Grafton delivers every time.

    This was my first Grafton book and will likely be my last. Though the plot was good and I liked the characters there is so much flowery descriptive it gets in the way of a tight story flow. Vocabulary is so elusive that in many cases I had to look up the words for definitions. In one case so obscure that the Merriam Webster site asked me for info on where & how I'd come across the word. Nuff said?
  • Not one of her best

    I love Kinsey but this was a little slow in parts. Not a fan of the ending!
  • Too many letters

    The earlier were much better. Even after adjusting for the period, there were just too many plot holes, too many details where details were not needed, and by P there is too much a formula.
  • Unfinished

    Sue Grafton leaves nearly everything unanswered at the end, and this book has no epilogue. It would have been a favorite but it is sincerely unfinished. Like her publishers simply cut her off at a page count. Very disappointed.

    Loved the story, very twisty with various plots. Be prepared for MANY typos and the ending is missing! Not pleased, feel like the story didn't end.

    Come on Sue you can't end the book like that. You usually wrap things up so tidily I am disappointed. GOD bless

    Another great Sue Grafton novel! An easy read, but the ending had me turning back to re-read what I must have missed. It could of had a complete conclusion in my opinion. I would still highly recommend.
