Kinsey Millhone is a private detective with a good heart. Unfortunately she will never be rich as her clients have a tendency to turn up dead.
The ABC murder books are light crime fiction with a female lead character that is hard not to like. She is a twice divorced tough cookie that finds it hard to let go even when her minds tell her it is a bad idea.
The stories are set in the 1980's - all before cellphones and the internet became part of our lives.
This is definitely not going to win any literally acclaim but it is very enjoyable (maybe just because of that fact). Sometimes you just want to loose yourself in the story without too much thought about anything else.
W is for Wasted was published this year, so I have a few letters to go yet.
