You haven't read a thriller until you read #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton's novels with her unforgettable P.I. Kinsey Millhone...

"C" is for Corpse

He was young-maybe twenty or so-and he must once have been a good-looking kid. Kinsey could see that. But now his body was covered in scars, his face half-collapsed. It saddened Kinsey and made her curious. She could see he was in a lot of pain. But for three weeks, as Kinsey'd watched him doggedly working out at the local gym, putting himself through a grueling exercise routine, he never spoke.

Then one Monday morning when there was no one else in the gym, Bobby Callahan approached her. His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon 400 feet below, his Porsche a bare ruin, his best friend dead. The doctors had managed to put his body back together again-sort of. His mother's money had seen to that. What they couldn't fix was his mind, couldn't restore the huge chunks of memory wiped out by the crash. Bobby knew someone had tried to kill him, but he didn't know why. He knew he had the key to something that made him dangerous to the killer, but he didn't know what it was. And he sensed that someone was still out there, ready to pounce at the first sign his memory was coming back. He'd been to the cops, but they'd shrugged off his story. His family thought he had a screw loose. But he was scared-scared to death. He wanted to hire Kinsey.

His case didn't have a whole lot going for it, but he was hard to resist: young, brave, hurt. She took him on. And three days later, Bobby Callahan was dead.

Kinsey Millhone never welshed a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing. Now she'd find the killer.

I like Kinsey Milhone, and that is partly in thanks to readers Mary Peiffer and Judy Kaye. I love both of their voices and , to me, they Are Kinsey. A reader can either enhance a book or ruin it. I have had many audio books that I just couldn't listen to because of the reader.
I also love Sue Grafton's detective. She is smart and funny, capable and tough while still having a feminine softness, I like that, it's like a real woman not someone trying to act like man.

Even though she's written 26 books with the same character, I still enjoy her writing & sense of humor. Nothing deep or mysterious, just enjoyable reading. Always good readers.

We love to listen to the Kinsey Milhone stories while traveling or running around town on weekends. For years we've listened to Judy Kaye, but now for some reason they've changed to this reader and she just doesn't do Kinsey justice. We had some stories from the library read by this new reader and took them all back without listening. Very disappointing. Bring back Judy Kaye!

Another fun adventure for the heroine, Kinsey Millhone. Not as lighthearted as the By-the-Numbers series by Janet Evanovich, but still a good read.
