Synopses & Reviews
For #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Graftons PI Kinsey Milhone, danger comes with the job—but she never expects to find herself at the top of a hit mans list . . .
G IS FOR GAME
When Irene Gersh asks PI Kinsey Millhone to locate her elderly mother Agnes, whom she hasnt heard from in six months, its not exactly the kind of case Kinsey jumps for. But a girls gotta pay her bills, and this should be easy money—or so she thinks. Kinsey finds Agnes in a hospital. Aside from her occasional memory lapses, the octogenarian seems fine. And frightened.
G IS FOR GUN
Kinsey doesnt know what to make of Agness vague fears and bizarre ramblings, but shes got her own worries. It seems Tyrone Patty, a criminal she helped put behind bars, is looking to make a hit. First, Kinseys car is run off the road, and then days later, shes almost gunned down, setting in motion a harrowing cat and mouse game . . .
G IS FOR GUMSHOE
So Kinsey decides to hire a bodyguard. With PI Robert Dietz watching her 24/7, Kinsey is feeling on edge…especially with their growing sexual tension. Then Agnes dies of an apparent homicide, and Kinsey realizes the old lady wasnt so senile after all—maybe she was trying to tell her something? Now Kinseys determined to learn the truth . . . even if it kills her.

"G" is for Gumshoe
A rich, complex, and gripping tale in which Kinsey's grit is tested to its utmost as she unearths the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal and, in the process, comes face-to-face with the grisly fact of her own mortality. "G" is for guilt and guile, for greed and grief and the Grim Reaper. And "G" is for good: very, very good indeed.
