The whole "it's night, it's dark, it's unlike the day" thing was heavy handed and I wondered where her editor was. That aside, I really loved the book's premis. Grafton offers a bunch of unpleasant people, any of whom had a decent motive and opportunity. Great ending and unlike the other alphabet series novels in the way Milhone wraps up the case. Definnately one of my favorites in the series.

This was a little different than the last few books. We get a glimpse of a dark side to Kinsey. It wasn't my favorite but it wasn't bad.

When Kinsey Millhone answers her office door late one night, she lets in more darkness than she realizes. Janice Kepler is a grieving mother who can't let the death of her beautiful daughter Lorna alone. The police agree that Lorna was murdered, but a suspect was never apprehended and the trail is now ten months cold. Kinsey pieces together Lorna's young life: a dull day job a the local water treatment plant spiced by sidelines in prostitution and pornography. She tangles with Lorna's friends: a local late-night DJ; a sweet, funny teenaged hooker; Lorna's sloppy landlord and his exotic wife. But to find out which one, if any, turned killer, Kinsey will have to inhabit a netherworld from which she may never return.

    K is for Killer by Sue Grafton is another whirlwind of mystery a

    K is for Killer by Sue Grafton is another whirlwind of mystery and intrigue.  I don't know how she get so many plot lines to come together in the end, but she always does.  And she always surprises me when the puzzle is finally solved.  Just when I think I have figured out the mystery, my theory dies with the character.  Kinsey Milhone is a strong, intelligent woman.  The police have tried to solve the same crime for 10 months, but she adds a new eye and a knack for inteviews.  I love the settings and the descriptions, and often find myself telling the characters where to go and not to go.  I even want to tell Kinsey to get a dog...LOL.

    A good read

    I'm late in reading Sue Grafton, but have found all of her books to be very entertaining. One thing I find refreshing, her books are not full of profanity, just a little scattered her and there. I recommend reading Sue Grafton and you really don't have to start with the first book, that's just my preference.

    Diehard- Sue Grafton Fan

    Keeps you guessing, also makes you sit back and wonder why people do some of the things they do, without having a guilty conscious.

    Kinsey's got spunk!

    I just finished 'K is for Killer', the 11th Sue Grafton book I've read and it was great! Kinsey's determination to get justice done for these 2 girls was inspiring. I recommend this book and all Sue Grafton's books to anyone enjoying mysteries.
