Series Sunday: N is for Noose

(Kinsey Millhone #14) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. 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 N is for Noose, the 14th book in the Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton. I am moving along in this series thanks to the perpetual reading challenge. It is fun to catch-up leisurely on a book series. It is even more fun to still find out tidbits about a main character after so many books already published. I am happy to report this series has not fell flat at fourteen books in. I am still just as interested and enjoy the mysteries.

"If we understood the consequences of any given action, we could exercise discretion, thus restructuring our fate." ~ pg. 8

A town is saddened when a tough, honest cop dies suddenly. Sure he worked too hard, smoked too much, exercised too little and ate more junk food. So his wife did not question the coroner's report. It was his behavior in the last six weeks of his life that bothered the widow. Hence hiring 35-year-old licensed private detective Kinsey Millhone.

Like the true hard worker and thorough detective she is, Kinsey Millhone risks her own life and puts her career in jeopardy to give a widow closure. She should've left that little ass town instead of steadily looking for a needle in a haystack. Kinsey becomes the target; all the townies are suspects.

"Some little pipsqueak P.I. with a prissy sense of justice." ~ pg. 203

It is no point in trying to convince you bookhearts to pick up and start this series. But I will anyhow. Read with me! Kinsey is no punk. Seriously, this series keeps getting better. I dread the day I catch up and have to wait patiently for new releases.
