The third installment in Sue Grafton's #1 New York Times bestselling series, reissued for a whole new generation of readers!
 
C IS FOR CORPSE
 
He was young—maybe twenty or so—and he must once have been a good-looking kid. Kinsey could see that. But now his body was covered in scars, his face half-collapsed. It saddened Kinsey and made her curious. She could see he was in a lot of pain. But for three weeks, as Kinsey had watched him doggedly working out at the local gym, putting himself through a grueling exercise routine, he never spoke.

Then one Monday morning, when there was no one else in the gym, Bobby Callahan approached her. His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon four hundred feet below, his Porsche a bare ruin, his best friend dead. The doctors had managed to put his body back together again—his mother's money had seen to that. But they couldn't restore the huge chunks of memory wiped out by the crash. Bobby knew someone had tried to kill him, but he didn't know why. He knew he had the key to something that made him dangerous to the killer, but he didn't know what it was. And he sensed that someone was still out there, ready to pounce at the first sign his memory was coming back. He'd been to the cops, but they'd shrugged off his story. His family thought he had a screw loose. He wanted to hire Kinsey.

Three days later, Bobby Callahan was dead.

Kinsey Millhone never welshed a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing. Now she'd find the killer.

Synopsis:

You havent read a thriller until you read #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Graftons novels with her unforgettable P.I. Kinsey Millhone…

 

C IS FOR CALCULATED

How do you go about solving an attempted murder when the victim has lost a good part of his memory? Its one of Kinseys toughest cases yet, but she never backs down from a challenge. Twenty-three-year-old Bobby Callahan is lucky to be alive after a car forced his Porsche over a bridge and into a canyon. The crash left Bobby with a clouded memory. But he cant shake the feeling it was no random accident and that hes still in danger…

 

C IS FOR CRIME

The only clues Kinsey has to go on are a little red address book and the name “Blackman.” Bobby cant remember who he gave the address book to for safekeeping. And any chances of Bobby regaining his memory are dashed when hes killed in another automobile accident just three days after he hires Kinsey.

 

C IS FOR CORPSE

As Kinsey digs deeper into her investigation, she discovers Bobby had a secret worth killing for—and unearthing that secret could send Kinsey to her own early death…
