Powell’s Newsletter for January 3, 2008

Read Dave's Interview with Sue Grafton

Twenty-four years, 26 languages, and nineteen bestselling abecedarian mysteries after her debut, private investigator Kinsey Millhone faces one of her most vexing cases when an elderly neighbor suffers a dangerous fall and his care is left to a strong-willed home aide. At Powell's to sign copies of her critically acclaimed new book, T Is for Trespass, Grafton dished on Kinsey, impossible tasks, identity theft, screenwriting, Mickey Spillane, and more.

Don't miss your chance to pick up signed first editions of Grafton's latest, T Is for Trespass — while they last!
