First in the Kinsey Millhone series.

Plenty of people in the picturesque town of Santa Teresa, California, wanted Laurence Fife, a ruthless divorce attorney, dead. Including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, who was convicted of the crime.

Now, eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killer her husband. Kinsey must pursue a trail that's eight years old: one that leads from a young boy, born deaf, whose memory cannot be trusted; to a lawyer defensively loyal to his dead partner - and disarmingly attractive to Millhone; to a not-so-young secretary with too high a salary for far too few skills.

This train will twist to include them all, with Kinsey following every turn until it finally twists back on itself and she finds herself face-to-face with a killer cunning enough to get away with murder.

I read this book years ago but as I plan to read the whole series now, I decided to start from the beginning. I didn't remember the plot - not surprising, considering the hundreds of murder/mystery books I've read in the interim - so it was an enjoyable, fun read and it took me quite a while to guess at the murderer.

Recommended to anyone enjoys a good but not too complex mystery.

I was quite impressed with the main character as when i looked at the date of the the book it was first published in 1986 and the main female character is one strong woman! I enjoyed the pace and style of the book and look forward to reading some more...i did get it right though which i was hoping wouldn't be the case...it'll be interesting to see if i work out who did it in the next book!

I have made contact with pingucb and hope to send the book on very soon.

thank you very much for sharing!

Received this today. Thankyou so much to ekranda for the card and stickers that were included with it :-D
It's probably going to be a couple of weeks before I start this one as I have one and a bit ring books to read before it. But should be fine to pass on within the six weeks, am looking forward to this series - it looks fun.

Light and easy reading which shows it's age a little at times, but still good fun. I enjoyed this book overall and am looking forward to the rest of the series :-)
