“A” is for Alibi: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery by Sue Grafton
Edition read: Kindle, from Holt Paperbacks, 2010
The first in the alphabetical voyage by Grafton. A straight-shooting, minimalist heroine who solves a crime with hard work, a little luck, and some personal loss. If you like your heroines larger-than-life, this is not for you. If you want to spend time with someone whose life could easily be yours, then Kinsey Millhone is your girl. The prospect of another 25 in the series is a pleasant — not burdensome — thought.
