K is for Killer - Sue Grafton
Author: Sue Grafton
Overview and Review of "K" is for Killer by Sue Grafton.
I was always with intrigued by Sue Grafton's books. She has this "A" for Alibi, "B" is for Burglar, and "C" is for Corpse. She has more books that is done alphabetically, which makes it unique and intriguing. And so, I bought one that started with a K and I have this "K" is for Killer.
It's basically an investigation done by a woman named Kinsey Milhone. I think all her(Sue Grafton) books are about the cases Kinsey would be solving. This one involves a death of a woman ten months ago and you'd be sure it would be on the files called "Cold cases". The woman that was found dead was identified as Lorna Kepler, found in a cabin and showing signs of rigor already. The police all agreed it was a murder but a month after the investigation no evidences turned up. Now, the mother of Lorna named Janice Kepler is desperate to find her daughter's murderer and be done with it. Kinsey suddenly finds about Lorna's life, associating with Lorna's friends: A late night DJ, a sweet teenage hooker, Lorna's landlord and his wife, and even his boss.
Sue Grafton has a knack for describing things. Her character Kinsey is not the usual serious investigator, mystery books portray. You would also know her personality along the way. I can't possibly say a lot because the book wasn't at all amazing. It's one of those books you pick up when you are bored and got nothing to do. I've heard a lot about Sue Grafton but I'm sure this is not one of her best.
