B Is for Burglar (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries
By

Rating
Finding wealthy Elaine Boldt seems like a quickie case to Kinsey Millhone. The flashy widow was last seen wearing a $12,000 lynx coat, leaving her condo in Santa Teresa for her condo in Boca Raton. But somewhere in between, she vanished. Kinsey's case goes from puzzling to sinister when a house is torched, an apartment is burgled of worthless papers, the lynx coat comes back without Elaine, and her bridge partner is found dead. Soon Kinsey's clues begin to form a capital M -- not for missing, but for murder: And plenty of it. Winner Of The 1985 Private Eye Writers Of America Shamus Award And The 1985 Anthony Award For Best Novel.

About the Author

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton (1940-2017) entered the mystery field in 1982 with the publication of 'A' Is for Alibi, which introduced female hard-boiled private investigator, Kinsey Millhone, operating out of the fictional town of Santa Teresa, (aka Santa Barbara) California, and launched the bestselling Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries. In addition to her books, she'd published several Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, wrote numerous movies for television, including "A Killer in the Family" (starring Robert Mitchum), "Love on the Run" (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist) and two Agatha Christie adaptations, "Sparkling Cyanide" and "Caribbean Mystery," which starred Helen Hayes. Grafton is published in 28 countries and in 26 languages.

Reviews

"The best new private eye." --The Detroit News "Exceptionally entertaining...an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice." --San Francisco Chronicle "Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire...P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator...are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes." --The Buffalo News "Once a fan reads one of Grafton's alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found." --Los Angeles Herald Examiner "Millhone is a refreshingly strong and resourceful female private eye." --Library Journal "Tough but compassionate...There is no one better than Kinsey Millhone." --Best Sellers "A woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner." --Newsweek "Lord, how I like this Kinsey Millhone...The best detective fiction I have read in years." --The New York Times Book Review "Smart, tough, and thorough...Kinsey Millhone is a pleasure." --The Bloomsbury Review "Kinsey is one of the most persuasive of the new female operatives...She's refreshingly free of gender cliches.
