"N" Is for Noose (Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries)by Sue Grafton
Synopses & Reviews
“SMART AND SASSY” (New York Times) P.I. Kinsey Millhone is at it again in yet another thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton
N is for NEVER AGAIN…
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….
N is for NO MERCY…
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.
N is for NOOSE
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…
“There are few writers able to sustain this solid mixture of detection, narrative energy, and cultural observation.”—The Washington Post
Sometimes I think about how odd it would be to catch a glimpse of the future, a quick view of events lying in store for us. Some moments we saw would make no sense at all and some, I suspect, would frighten us beyond our endurance . . .
Early spring in the Sierra Nevada, bringing the usual driving sleet and snow. PI Kinsey Millhone is on her way west when she detours into Nota Lake (pop. 2356) to check out a new client. And encounters a chill she can scarcely believe.
Only six weeks have passed since sheriff's detective Tom Newquist died of a heart attack. His widow is sure he was keeping secrets from her just before he died - and she hires Kinsey to find out exactly what.
But all Kinsey can uncover is that Newquist led an exemplary life, so what could he possibly have to conceal? And why has the town, to the last threatening redneck, closed ranks on her?
Kinsey's on the point of giving up. Until she discovers a chilling new clue: a childish drawing of a thick length of rope - fashioned into a hangman's noose . . .
'I love Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone novels . . . you are never disappointed' Guardian
