Kinsey Millhone is probably my all-time favorite female detective and she did not disappoint me with this investigation. In “X”, Kinsey is on the trail of a woman who hired her under false pretenses and then paid her in counterfeit bills. She has also discovered an unfinished investigation that Pete Wolinsky was working on at the time of his death and decides, rather reluctantly, to see it to completion. And just to make her days a little more interesting, she and Henry have some annoying neighbors and a water leak on the property.
As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with Kinsey. She continues to delight me with her somewhat caustic personality and her persistence. I also really enjoy getting to hang out in sunny California while reading this series. Sue Grafton continues to deliver with carefully crafted plots that flow seamlessly from beginning to end. This story, in particular, has several different threads weaving through it that all work together to present an engaging mystery. Another job well done. Mystery lover should not miss out on this one, or any of the books in this series.
