Q Is for Quarry (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries)by read by Judy Kaye Sue Grafton
Synopses & Reviews
A Kinsey Millhone mystery. . .
She was a "Jane Doe," an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff's Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were mulitple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the case remained unsolved.
That was eighteen years ago. Now, the two men who found the body, both nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement, want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to do the legwork for them, and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. They will, they tell her, find closure if they can just identify the victim. Kinsey is intrigued by the challenge and agrees to work with them.
But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what beings with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.
Based on an unsolved 1969 homicide, this latest Kinsey Millhone case puts her on the trail of the murderer of a young "Jane Doe, " whose body was discovered 18 years ago near a quarry off California's Highway 1. The original detectives want one last shot to solve the case, and they turn to Kinsey to help identify the girl and find her killer. Abridged. 5 CDs.
