Each of Kinsey’s cases stretches the private-eye formula in new ways. Her 20th, which reads like vintage Ruth Rendell, will bring shivers to every reader with an aged parent—or a young child.

Synopsis

A miser and a hoarder, Gus Vronsky is so crotchety that after he takes a bad fall, his only living relative is anxious to find him some hired help and get back home as soon as she can.

In an effort to help, Gus's neighbor, private investigator Kinsey Millhone, runs a check on an applicant for the job, Solana Rojas. Social Security, driver's license, nursing certification: It all checks out. And it sounds like she did a good job for her former employers. So Kinsey gives her the thumbs-up, figuring Gus will be the ideal assignment for this diligent, experienced caregiver.

And the real Solana Rojas was indeed an excellent caregiver. But the woman who has stolen her identity is not, and for her, Gus will be the ideal victim...

T IS FOR TRESPASS is more than a good mystery; it is an alert to the dangers that await us all if we are not aware of how easy it is for an unscrupulous person to insinuate themselves into a family member’s life.

As this master of suspense continues to demonstrate in superb mystery after mystery, there are more ugly twists in the human heart than there are letters in the alphabet.

Award winning mystery author, Sue Grafton, is at the top of her game with T is for Trespass...for the full effect, start with A is for Alibi and enjoy the progression to an all out chiller in T is for Trespass.

T is for Trespass is slow to begin with, but once the characters begin to unfold and their paths cross it is impossible to put the novel down.

I had great hopes of the Solana plot which Grafton doesn't quite pull off. She's certainly a frightening character, but the book never totally delivers on the promised menace. Unforgivably, Grafton perpetrates the clumsy 'had I but known' approach far too often.
