I love Kinsey and this is one of the best. My only complaint has more to do with myself than the book. By keeping it set in 1988, the author has really made me aware of how dependent I am on technology. I actually get stressed out when Kinsey is looking for a phone to use or looking for info. My mind keep screaming "Google!" LOL

One of her best in the series! I was sorry when it ended. I hope she writes another book sooner than she normally does!

Another terrific Sue Grafton novel. It has been a while since I read it, but here goes. our gal Kinsey finds herself in a situation where she is involved with a homeless community trying to find out what happened to a drifter. As always, once Kinsey starts picking at the loose thread all sorts of things come unraveled. Just a good story. As soon as I had read it, I was ready for the next volume. I also want to brag that I was able to meet. Ms. Grafton to get my volume signed. She was a very approachable and nice lady. I consider myself to be a huge fan of hers and Kinsey's.

I loved this. I had already read a review in the Cleveland Plain Dealer that called it "bloated" and "sluggish." That reviewer must have either had an upset stomach or experienced some kind of personal trauma, because that was way, way off base. I sailed right through this and enjoyed every page, even the one that made me cry, and one did. I cringe to think there are only three letters left in the alphabet.

I have read all of the abc..books and this one was very good. Even it had 2 story lines, it was all tied together and it really kept you interested and this book did not have any sex in it and its a good thing that it wasn't just throw in for whatever reasons. It followed the probate guide lines and it didn't go off the deep in .

The plot is more complicated that most of her books & it was one of her best. Loved reading it & am sorry it's over. I hope we dont have to wait so long for her next book! Only thing I could have done without is the silly sermon on the homeless at the end. Does she really think all of the homeless prefer not to have a home? That they simply choose a different life? I guess that's one way to feel better about their plight instead of helping them.

Loved this book and the whole series. This is a riviting tale. Great characters and awesome mystery. Another great book on the Nook is "The Partisan" by William Jarvis. Both books deserve A+++++++

I bought the book on pre-sale so I could get it on my Nook right away. Really engrossing puzzle with two plot lines that come together. Not looking forward to "Z", only 3 away...then what? Love this series!

Up to par with the rest of the series, homelessness remains one of society's ills, glad to see Kinsey's good fortune!!!

One of the better ones in the series. This book was reminiscent of the first books in the series which I loved. Lots of focus on the characters we've grown to know and love - Kinsey, Henry, William, Jonah, etc. A real page turner. Well edited. A must read for fans of this series.

Sue Grafton does it again with another Kinsey novel. This time Kinsey is called to the corinor's office to identify a body of a man she never met who had her name in his pocket. Meanwhile another private eye is found shot, presumably by his own gun! Little does Kinsey know as facts unfold she discovers more about her distant family and a very twisted murderer. In all a great read too bad I have to wait a year for the next one.

Perfect as usual. 436 pages. I can hardly wait for X. It seems like I have read these books my whole life. I do not know if they would be better updated or should be stuck in the time warp of the 1970s. Regardless, Kinsey Millhone will always be my favorite PI. Recommended for all mystery lovers ages 15 and up. No cursing or sex, no religion. These are nice, clean reads. There is some violence and the murder(s) are never graphic. It is so nice read a book with great editing. I will hate to see this series completed. But I can always reread them. AD

I loved W is For wasted! Sue Grafton just gets better with each book. Listening to the audio version adds so much to the enjoyment. Judy Kaye IS Kinsey Milhone! Make sure you don't miss this one!

I was so excited when "W" was released.  I started it the day it was available on my Nook.  Loved it !!  I was sad when it ended, I wanted it to go on for 400 more pages.  Just love Kinsey.

A whole lot more emotional this time, W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton still knocks it out of the part. I am not sure what I will do when we finish the alphabet, but it feels good to be caught up. I especially love the '80s settings. So well done.
