The first victim was a local PI of suspect reputation who’d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. The other body was found on the beach six weeks later—a homeless man with Kinsey Millhone’s name and number written on a slip of paper in his pants pocket.

Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.

But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. Not just between the two victims, but also to Kinsey’s past. And before long Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised…

    I like reading these, the plots are good but she doesn’t have much character development. Kinsey, she doesn’t change even after 5, or 6 years

  • A quick, slick read!

    I love all of Grafton's alphabet books. It is intriguing but not so complicated you can't put it down to take a quick dip in the pool and pick it back up where you left off. It has been my favorite just for fun n summer read.
  • Best one yet.

    This was my favorite Kinsey novel so far. I've read them all and this one was the warmest, most thoughtful yet. I feel like we got to see another side of Kinsey. Would recommend 10/10.

    One of Grafton's best. Weaving mystery, medical issues, and homelessness into a single great story. Can't wait for the next.

    So far I have read through page 50 and nothing is going on. Boring!
  • Great read!

    I am a big fan of Sue Grafton ( I will be disappointed when she runs out of alphabet). This is a good story with just enough morality with getting preachy but enough to get you thinking. I always enjoy her stories and this is one of her best.
