As always, Grafton is as original, absorbing and humane as ever. The joints just creak a bit this time.

Synopsis

Private detective Kinsey Millhone feels a bit out of place in Nordstrom’s lingerie department, but she’s entirely in her element when she puts a stop to a brazen shoplifting spree. For her trouble she nearly gets run over in the parking lot by one of the fleeing thieves—and later learns that the one who didn’t get away has been found dead in an apparent suicide. But Audrey Vance’s grieving fiancé suspects murder and hires Kinsey to investigate—in a case that will reveal a big story behind a small crime, and lead her into a web that connects a shadowy “private banker,” an angry trophy wife, a spoiled kid with a spiraling addiction, and a brutal killer without a conscience…

It’s nice to see that Kinsey Millhone hasn’t grown cynical (or, worse yet, mellowed) since she took on her initial case almost 30 years ago in Sue Grafton’s first alphabet mystery.
