In addition, she’s published eight Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, has written numerous movies for television, including A Killer in the Family (starring Robert Mitchum), Love on the Run (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist), and two Agatha Christie adaptations, Sparkling Cyanide and Caribbean Mystery, which starred Helen Hayes.

This wasn't too bad. It was kind of slow in the beginning, but it got better. I still wish the endings were a little more detailed. Kinsey's skills are about to be sorely tested. She is about to meet her duplicitous match in a couple of world-class prevaricators who quite literally take her for the ride of her life. "L" Is for Lawless: Call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest novel with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as bad girl-- quick-witted and quicksilvery, smart-mouthed and smart-alecky-- poking her nose into everyone's dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in an Our Gang comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance. America's favorite borderline delinquent is back with her one-liners on tap and her energy level on high, romping through her fastest and funniest adventure in this, her twelfth foray into the alphabet of crime. "A" Is for Alibi "B" Is for Burglar "C" Is for Corpse "D" Is for Deadbeat "E" Is for Evidence "F" Is for Fugitive "G" Is for Gumshoe "H" Is for Homicide "I" Is for Innocent "J" Is for Judgment "K" Is for Killer "L" is for Lawless "M" Is for Malice "N" Is for Noose "O" Is for Outlaw Kinsey Millhone's latest is her most spellbinding mystery yet--and her biggest book to date! When Kinsey agrees to do a favor for her elderly landlord, she finds herself on the trail of a decades-old crime.

Loved it, but was mad at the end about how Kinsey was wronged!!! thats all I'm going to say, I don't want to give anything away.

This is my favorite mystery series. I read these books when they first came out and have started to read them from the beginning again. The stories take place in the 1980's. Great characters and story lines. Good, no-nonsense mysteries. I recommend reading them in order.

This was yet another great read from Sue Grafton. Kinsey was exploring being apart of a family for some of the book. Short on money and short on help from her employer she trys to find out the mystery of her employers father's past. The only problem is he is not even sure what they are looking for. She is in for a surprise when she makes friends with an ex con and his daughter. Surprises are throughout and you never know where she is going next... and honestly neither does she.

This one is a real page turner. I kept turning the page to avoid falling asleep. I have enjoyed this series up until now. L to me means Last One!

The plot and characters were interesting. There were some dull parts but for the most part enjoyable reading. I've read some of the other books in this series and this was one of the best.

I have read several from her series, I started with L and none have been able to match it. The story is a bit different than the rest and definately a page turner. If you only read one of Ms. Grafton's books make it this one!

Going through this series for the 2nd time. Kinsey's 'clients' in this book became so annoying mid-way through that I skipped 50+ pages to the last 2 chapters and epilogue.
