(Kinsey Millhone #23)
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 W is for Wasted, the 23rd book in the Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton. Another local PI found gunned down in what appears to be a robbery gone bad. Six weeks later, a homeless man is found dead apparently from natural causes on the beach. In his pocket is Kinsey's name and number. Who is John Doe? Are these two deaths related?
"Not every life turns out." ~ pg. 52
Finally in book #23 readers find out more about Kinsey's personal life and family. I have been waiting for this! As I look over my ratings of the other books in series, I realize that I prefer the books that focus on a mystery directly involving Kinsey. Grafton has carefully guarded details of the main character—which is so odd for a series—so the smallest drop of knowledge/history pulls me in.
Thank goodness this was a good read! I could only muster one heart ratings for the last two books in series. But W was on point. In fact, I read all 480+ pages in two days during a quiet weekend. That is how interesting the story turned out to be. Once I turned the last page, it hit me. There are only two more books and the Kinsey Millhone series is finished. W, X, Y and EEK!
