I thought the book was good, but as mentioned by other readers, there were so many characters that I had to get a pad and pencil to write down their names and a brief history of each so I could keep them straight. I didn't like the ending - confusing. Looking forward to 'T'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

S is for Suspicious
Did Sue Grafton really write this book? I'm a bit suspicious. I am a big fan on the series and admire the tightness, consistency, completeness and near literary quality of each book - A to R, but this one seems to be lacking those sparks . For instance, for the character Jake, there were some contraditions that had me flipping back to his sections. I thought these issues would be resolved at the end, but were not. The overall ending was very disappointing, with the gaps well documented on these reviews - why was Violet killed, what was Violet's relationships with the killer. Unlike the others, this book read more like a screenplay than a well-crafted mystery novel and I'm hoping for the return of the real Sue Grafton in T...Was this review helpful?

A little confused
I throughly enjoyed this book, however, after reading and getting to the end, I had to go back to the front and re-read to connect the missing dots. There were so many characters that when I finally realized who committed the murder, I could not remember what part the person played in the story. Other than that, the book was a good read. I do recommend this book as a good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

G IS FOR GRAFTON AND ANOTHER GREAT MYSTERY
Those who thought an audio book reading couldn't get any better than 'R Is For Ricochet' as delivered by Judy Kaye are in for a very happy surprise. Tony Award winning actress Kaye is a voice performer who just keeps getting better and better, although how one improves on excellence we're not quite sure. She delivers Grafton's narrative with assurance and understanding. To my knowledge, she has read every book in this alphabet series beginning with A Is For Alibi. All have been highly praised. Many Grafton fans have been with heroine Kinsey Millhone since she was first introduced, and cannot wait for her next adventure. 'S Is For Silence' won't disappoint. This time out Kinsey has her sights set on an old case, about as old as she is as a matter of fact. Thirty-four years ago Violet Sullivan decked herself out and headed for an Independence Day celebration. Well, she either felt a little too independent and disappeared leaving her young daughter behind or she met with foul play. Now, daughter Daisy wants some answers and she expects to Kinsey to come up with them. G is for Grafton and also for great mystery writing Kay is for Kaye and one more knock-out voice performance. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Can't wait for 'T'
'S is for Silence' is another winner for Sue Grafton. Kinsey Millhone is a very entertaining character and Grafton knows just how far to take her. I enjoyed going back in time with the characters, getting to know them as well as the victim. The blending of the past and present was such that you really didn't notice it that much and feel confused by it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
