Series Sunday: D is for Deadbeat

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name. 

My Series Sunday pick is D is for Deadbeat, the 4th book in the Kinsey Millhone alphabet mystery series by Sue Grafton. Alvin Limardo had a simple request: locate a kid who did him a favor and pass on a $25,000 check as a thank you. Seemed easy enough, right? But he stiffed Kinsey on her retainer and his name really isn't Alvin Limardo. It is John Daggett: an ex-con, liar, drunk and dead. Kinsey is soon pulled into the dead man's life and starts to uncover a lot of his enemies. Most of them who wanted deadbeat Daggett dead and maybe Kinsey for putting her nose in a situation where it doesn't belong.

As I've come to realize, Kinsey's own life is put in danger with every investigation. Somehow she manages to stay alive and accept a new case. And somehow I am now sucked into this series and liking it.
