In 1979, four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate - and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns in evidence for the state and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace. Now it's 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Unrepentant and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents - until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That's when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he's not the only one being haunted by the past....

I really enjoyed this book but had to pay attention to the time changes between chapters. I found the teenagers (and their parents) all vey unlikeable and they didn’t improve any when they became adults. There was a huge amount going on in the side stories, which you could follow and I suspect some of them might have being going somewhere for the next book – but it didn’t happen. Nonetheless, it is surprisingly tied up for a book that wasn’t meant to be the last in the series. I did wonder how she was going to tie everything up as there didn’t seem to be enough pages left but I had forgotten this was a report for her files and there would be an epilogue. The explanation of the final murder was maybe a little vague but it can still be worked out. I’m going to miss Kinsey, a lot.

This arrived, can't believe I have the last book in the series in my hands. Thank you so much earthcaroleanne for sending out the books to me and helping me complete this series, I've got a few to read, but I'm excited but also sad it's the last book. Thank you Icila for sending the book to me.

This was definitely one of the best Kinsey Millhone books I've read due to the fact that so much is going on and Sue Grafton managed to grip me from the get-go. I'm not sure if it's to do with the fact that this book is the last in the series, but I'm definitely here for it.

I did find some of the subplots jarring and disappointing, such as Henry digging up his beloved yard due to the drought, but he doesn't do anything to it to make it beautiful again - I presume she was saving it up for Z...? We'll never know. On top of that, we barely hear a thing about Kinsey's extended family, like I literally loved finding out more and more about her family over the series of books, at the same time as Kinsey herself, but there's barely much mention of either side of her family in this - again, I can only presume Sue Grafton was planning a huge family storyline for the last book, although I do wonder if she just forgot all about the Kinsey clan in the last few books, like where were Tasha and Liza?

Regardless of my somewhat issues with the book, I was enthralled within the pages about the sex tape resurfacing and Kinsey Millhone being hired to work out who is the blackmailer. The homeless characters were some of my favourite, and there were also plenty of tense scenes as Ned is still out to get her from the previous book.

I'm not sure how I'm going to cope having now read all the books in the series, Sue Grafton and her Kinsey Millhone series will certainly be missed. Although, there are reports that her family have sold the rights to the books to be made into a TV series (even though Sue Grafton specifically said that she would haunt her children if they were to do that) - let's just hope they do the book series justice.

Thank you earthcaroleanne for sending these books my way and helping me to finish off the series, you are an absolute star!
