    F is for Fearless!

    F is for Fugitive becomes the sixth installment in the Millhone's series, and Sue Grafton doesn't fail in delivering a brilliant and well-crafted novel. Grafton delivers another outstanding mystery, a page turner with twist and turns. An exquisite lineup of characters make F is for Fugitive, much alike as previous installments; the narrative technique that Grafton uses is simple and eloquent. Grafton has a way to unfold the story, and make Kinsey's character very truthful. F is for Fugitive puts Kinsey on the task to uncover who really killed Jean Timberlake, seventeen years after Bailey Fowler plead guilty and was convicted. One year later he escaped from prison to never be seen again. He became a fugitive. F is for Fugitive is beautiful because as the series progresses and the novel unfolds Grafton gives us another insight into Kinsey's life. F is for Fugitive makes no exception. As she puts it " Every violent death represents the climax of one story and an introduction to its sequel" The story is a reflection of that and how the characters' lives were affected by it. Grafton is magnificent in wrapping the story, and giving Kinsey a lot of room to reflect on her own life. F is for fugitive has one of the most delicate endings when it comes to kinsey's character, and somehow becomes unforgettable.

    Teriffic!!!!!!

    Sue Grafton, the author of F is for Fugitive and the rest of the alphabet mystery books, writes another entertaining book that keeps the reader guessing about what will happen next. Kinsey Millhone, a PI. from Santa Teresa, California, is hired to track down the true killer in a murder investigation 17 years ago. The father of the accused murderer hires Kinsey to retrace the steps of the wrongfully accused son that was sent to jail for a murder he swears he didn't commit. After escaping from prison, he is picked up by the cops a year later, then his father hires Kinsey to find the real murderer. Kinsey is faced with exciting twists and turns has she hunts for the true killer to save an innocent man from going back to jail. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys an exciting book.

    Pretty Good

    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.

    One of today's hottest mystery writers is back with the latest installment in her alphabet sleuth series. This multi- layered novel explores the explosive passions that reignite questions concerning the 17-year-old murder of a promiscuous teenage girl.

    It was pretty good. I thought i knew who the killer was, and was kind of surprised that the killer wasn't someone that I suspected.

    A little slow

    I have begun reading the alphabet books. This was a bit slow in spots but was overall pretty good.
