Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kinsey Millhone should have done something else--she should have turned the car in the direction of home. Instead, she was about to put herself in the gravest jeopardy of her career.

Tom Newquist had been a detective in the Nota Lake sheriff's office--a tough, honest cop respected by everyone. When he died suddenly, the townsfolk were saddened but not surprised: Just shy of sixty-five, Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign. Newquist's widow didn't doubt the coroner's report. But what Selma couldn't accept was not knowing what had so bothered Tom in the last six weeks of his life. What was it that had made him prowl restlessly at night, that had him brooding constantly? Selma Newquist wanted closure, and the only way she'd get it was if she found out what it was that had so bedeviled her husband. Kinsey should have dumped the case. It was vague and hopeless, like looking for a needle in a haystack. Instead, she set up shop in Nota Lake, where she found that looking for a needle in a haystack can draw blood. Very likely, her own."N" Is for Noose: a novel in which Kinsey Millhone becomes the target and an entire town seems in for the kill.

Synopsis:

 “SMART AND SASSY” (New York Times) P.I. Kinsey Millhone is at it again in "N" is for Noose—another thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton

Tom Newquist has died. A detective in the Nota Lake sheriffs office, Tom was tough, honest, and respected by all. He was also a heavy drinker and a workaholic, much to his wife Selmas distress. And now that Tom is gone, Selma cant help but wonder what it really was that was troubling him….

What made Tom so restless during the last six weeks of his life? Why was he up all night and brooding all day long? What—or who—was at the heart of his dark moods? With the coroners report in hand, Selma decides to enlist the help of Kinsey Millhone to find the truth about what happened to her husband.

But the residents of Nota Lake keep their secrets close—and their enemies closer. And the deeper Kinseys investigation goes, the closer she comes to confronting the most dangerous outcome of all: the truth…

Synopsis:

"When I first wrote "Alibi"", Grafton is quoted as saying, "I was just trying to get it done. I certainly wasn't thinking about a series". With that profound statement hovering somewhere in her past, Sue Grafton now offers her fourteenth novel in the popular Alphabet Mystery series. ""N" Is for Noose" promises to be Grafton's best endeavor yet.

About the Author

Sue Grafton began the alphabet series in 1982 and is aiming to complete it by 2015-give or take a decade. She spends part of the year in Louisville, Kentucky, and the rest in Montecito, California.
