Publisher Comments:

A tough-talking former cop, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has set up a modest detective agency in a quiet corner of Santa Teresa, California. A twice-divorced loner with few personal possessions and fewer personal attachments, shes got a soft spot for underdogs and lost causes.
Eight years ago, Nikki Fife was convicted of killing her philandering husband. Now shes out on parole and needs Kinseys help to find the real killer.
If there's one thing that makes Kinsey feel alive, it's playing on the edge. When her investigation turns up a second corpse, more suspects, and a new reason to kill, Kinsey discovers that the edge is closer—and sharper—than she imagined.

True fans of Grafton's novels, this is the first one you should read, because this is where Sue grafton really become famous. This is the book that would no doubt have twists and turns. I would no doubt in my mind that Sue had the touch of a respectable mystery writer.
