Description

R is for Ricochet book.

R is for Ricochet book. As with many of Sue Grafton's easy-reading tales about Santa Teresa private eye Kinsey Millhone, the books starts out pretty slow with Kinsey accepting a straightforward assignment to escort home a newly released parolee from women's prison, Reba Lafferty. The latter is an appealing young woman with fresh ideas and habits, including a past penchant for light drugs, booze, gambling, and her former boss Beck.

Kinsey millhone mysteries. The Kinsey Millhone stories, which constitute the first section of this book, appeared in various magazines and crime anthologies over a five-year period that began in 1986. The single exception, The Lying Game, I wrote in response to an invitation from Lands’ End to submit a short story for the catalogue.

Kinsey Millhone is Grafton’s best mystery, one that has been unfolding deliciously since the letter ‘.  . Titles by sue grafton. Kinsey Millhone mysteries. -San Francisco Chronicle.

I’m going to miss Kinsey Millhone. Ever since the first of Sue Grafton’s Alphabet mysteries, A Is For Alibi, came out in 1982, Kinsey has been a good friend and the very model of an independent woman, a gutsy Californian . it’s Kinsey herself who keeps. it’s Kinsey herself who keeps this series so warm and welcoming. She’s smart, she’s resourceful, and she’s tough enough to be sensitive on the right occasions.

S is for Silence was a real page turner and a far better read than R is for Richochet. The only thing I don't like is the jumping back and forth with the present and the flashbacks to fill in the story background. I feel it would have been better if it started with the background and continued from there. Violet Sullivan while not the ideal wife and mother is handsdown the most beautiful women in her small town. One fourth of July she suddenly goes missing. Some townspeople say she was killed by her abusive drunken husband while others believe she just ran off on her little girl Daisy to get away from the beatings. Either way no one has heard from her in over 30 years. Can Kinsey find out the truth or will the silence continue? Unfortunately, the ending left me thinking, 'huh?'. The guilty party made absolutely no sense at all --no compelling motive and certainly no motive for the ultimate brutality to Violet. What the heck was Grafton thinking and where was her editor??I loved this series of books until Grafton changed her writing style. I don't know if I can continue with this series, it is disappointing now.

I was blessed to have been given the entire series of these wonderful books by a great friend the only thing she bought most of the books at a well known book store and paid a fortune, luckily because I’m a prime member I was able to purchase the last remaining 5 books that she has in back order, and I even bought them 3x cheaper at Amazon so she saved a lot of money. Thank you sellers and Amazon the books have arrived very quickly and all hardcover. These books are a birthday day gift now I own the entire series for the exception of the last book of the alphabet, only because Ms. Sue Grafton , unfortunately past away in December of 2017. Readers enjoy!! I began reading her first book “A” is for Alibi 20 years ago while I was bedridden , believe me when you start you won’t want to stop until you have read the whole series.
Thank you sellers and Amazon and especially to my friend for allowing me to have a wonderful birthday gift I never thought I would ever be privileged to own them.
R.I.P. Ms. Sue Grafton

I am a big fan now started the whole series after randomly picking up B on a free cart the summer before me. Grafton passed away. Reading these is like reliving the 80's. Back when they started I was not interested but now they are nostalgic fun. Getting to know Kinsey has been great. I will be sorry to read Y is for yesterday. I hope they get one of the several authors mentioned in the books to create a z following up on a cold case about the disappearance of Kinsey in current day.

Ever since *A is for Alibi*, I've been hooked to the Kinsey Millhone series. Therefore, Sue Grafton became one of my favorite authors. Throughout the series, some were great and some were not so great. Nonetheless, I was extremely excited to get the paperback edition of *S is for Silence*. I read this book every opportunity I could take advantage of.

It's 1987. Kinsey has been hired by Daisy Sullivan to find out whatever happened to her mother, Violet, who disappeared on 4th of July 1953.

4th of July 1953, Violet is getting herself ready for the festive night. In walks Liza Mellincamp, who has been hired to babysit Violet's 7 year old daughter, Daisy. Liza is in awe of Violet. Violet is ready and takes off with her new Pomeranian puppy, Baby, in her brand-new Bel Aire. She was never seen after this day.

34 years later, Daisy wants closure. She wants to know why if her mother left on her own volition. Kinsey returns to the little town where Violet lived before she disappeared. Just about 90% of the people who were there in '53 are still living there. Piece of cake, eh? Not quite so. However, Kinsey has been able to piece together the last days of Violet before she disappeared.

It was no secret that Violet was a flirt. Married men didn't stop her. It was also not a secret that she won a $50,000 lawsuit settlement. She wasn't afraid to brag about it.

The question is did she disappear on her own or was she killed? If she took off on her own, why? Was there a serious lover? If she was murdered, there are no shortage of suspects. Was it her abusive, now recovering alcoholic, husband? Was it the young salesman who sold her that car and was later fired? Was it one of the married men that she had an affair with and abruptly stopped the liasion? Was it one of the women, disgusted by Violet's absence of moral standards?

The book "toggles" between Kinsey's present time (1987), in one chapter, and the characters in 1953. *S* was an interesting change of routine. In the other series, she usually includes Henry, her landlord, Rosie, owner of a restaurant, and some lover. In *S*, they're barely mentioned. So, it was nice to see Kinsey interact more with her client and the people she interviewed.

Overall, a good book that I couldn't put down. Now, I'm just sad because I gotta wait forever before T comes out. Sue, hurry!
