FAROUT MOTIVE

THIS IS NOT ONE OF MS. GRAFTON'S BEST STORIES. THE MOTIVE FOR THE MURDERS AND MAYHEM IS FAR-FETCHED. NEEDS A MORE BELIEVABLE ENDING.

    Read A, B & C, like the books, but sometimes I think she doe

    Read A, B & C, like the books, but sometimes I think she does some dumb things. Then I get mad and find myself yelling at the book. Just ordered D, E, & F, hopefully she gets smarter as they go on, will give them one more try.

    Pretty good

    It was the silly season and a Monday at that, and Kinsey Millhone was bogged down in a preliminary report on a fire claim. Something was nagging at her, but she couldn't pin it. The last thing she needed in the morning mail was a letter from her bank recording an erroneous $5,000 deposit in her account. Kinsey had never believed in Santa Claus and she wasn't about to change her mind now. Resigning herself to a morning of frustration, she phoned the bank and, assaulted by canned carols, waited on hold for an officer to clear up the snafu.

    It was with something less than Christmas cheer that Kinsey faced off only minutes later with California Fidelity's Mac Voorhies. Voorhies was smart, humorless, stingy with praise, and totally fair. He was frowning now.

    "I got a phone call this morning." he said, his frown deepening. "Somebody says you're on the take."

    Suddenly the $5,000 deposit clicked into place. It wasn't a mistake. It was a setup.

    "E" is for evidence: evidence planted, evidence lost. "E" is for ex-lovers and evasions, enemies and endings. For Kinsey, "E" is for everything she stands to lose if she can't exonerate herself: her license, her livelihood, her good name. And so she takes on a new client: namely, Kinsey Millhone, thirty-two and twice-divorced, ex-cop and wisecracking loner, a California private investigator with a penchant for lost causes--one of which, it is to be hoped, is not herself.

    As Kinsey begins to unravel the frame-up, she finds that her future is intimately tied to one family's past and to the explosive secret it has protected for almost twenty years. Digging deeper, she discovers that probing the past can have lethal consequences as she follows a trail of murder that leads to her own front door. And in what may well be her most challenging case, Kinsey comes up against the fact that sometimes, "E" is forever.

    When Kinsey is accused of being on the take, she has everything to lose--her license, her livelihood, and her good name. And so, being her own client, she sets out to unravel the frame-up--and discovers that her future is tied to an explosive secret a family has protected for years!

    It was a pretty good book. I didn't figure it out until Kinsey did. Well written and I can't wait for the next one.

    E is for Ex-husband: Spoilers

    Paperback: This is the 5th book in the series and so far the best. There are person issues as well as professional ones.
    Professionally, Kinsey is set up for arson fraud and her client is herself. The evidence has been planted and Kinsey has to prove her innocence before she is arrested. There ends up being two murders for Kinsey to solve.
    Personally, it is Christmas/New Year's and Kinsey is alone. No wait, ex-husband number one shows up. He claims to be clean from heroine addiction and want to make amends as part of his ten-step program. There's no Joshua or Henry in this book. However, Kinsey finds out the main reason for ex #1 leaving her. The suspects are rich in this book. Rich peeps = Lots of sex secrets.
    The ending was a little disappointing with the motive of the murder. The ending is not as bam!, in your face as the last four.

    Excellent!!! highly recommend.

    Sue Crafton and her ABC's books are always a delight and this one was no disappointment.

    I was delightfully surprised since the Herione is the accused in this book. Kept on the edge of my seat at times and hated to put it down until it was finished.

    A great read.

    All the Sue Grafton Kinsey Millhone series books are good easy reads.

    Kinsey's in trouble here

    Private Investigator, Kinsey Milhone, faces a few problems in this, the fifth book in Grafton¿s alphabet crime series. She is accused of accepting payoffs when $5000 is paid into her bank account and she must find a way of clearing her name before she loses her licence and her livelihood. She is of course an exceptional detective and being her own client does not lessen her enthusiasm. As usual Grafton gives us an exciting page-turner that keeps you reading to the last page.
