Kinsey Millhone celebrates her thirty-third birthday as only she can - she moves back into her renovated apartment, gets hired to find an elderly lady supposedly living in the Mojave Desert by herself, and makes the top of triggerman Tyrone Patty's hit list. As much as she hates to admit it, Kinsey realizes even she's going to need help fending off a hit man and she hires a bodyguard: Robert Dietz, a Porshe-driving P.I. who takes his job very seriously. With Dietz watching her for the merest sign of her usual recklessness, Kinsey plunges into a case that will lead her to the gruesome truth about a long-buried betrayal. And, in the process, will bring her face-to-face with her own mortality.

Kinsey is one of my current favourite P.I.s: funny, unconventional, with a mind of her own and utterly likable.

Die DeutscheÜbersetzung liegt schon länger auf dem MTBR.
Deshalb bleibt dies Buch in der Box und ich werde hoffentlich auch hier einen Kommentar machen, wenn ich es gelesen habe...
Got this book in german and will hopfiully make a comment here as soon as I got to and through it.

My comment about the book (german translation):

A nice Kinsey-Story
The case seems to be nothing spektakular - just finding the track of an old lady.
Thats easy enough and so this would have been a very small book if there wouldn't happen some odd things...
As the case is missing some of the typicall crime-ingredientes (no murder, no chasings, no life threatening action) there is a second story line who has all of it... And a bodyguard - not to mention as last.
Nice to read on the balkony...
