G is for Make Dr’s App’t

MysteryMondayMeme02While I’m travelling around for about a week, I’ve not been able to get as much reading done as I usually like.  So, instead of a new review on Mystery Monday, I’m going to reblog one from a bit over a year ago that perhaps many of you won’t have read because it was a time when I had very few followers.  It is by one of my favourite mystery writers, Sue Grafton, and her P.I. Kinsey Millhone.  For the life of me, I can’t remember how I came up with the title for this post — the “G” was for Grafton and I think the last half is from a note in one of the victim’s pockets; I’m glad I started using just the book titles.  Here it is:

wastedSue Grafton‘s mystery series about private detective Kinsey Millhone has been making its way through the alphabet and is getting into the tricky letters now (I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for “X” and “Z”).  Her latest in mass paperback, W is for Wasted, has Kinsey backtracking to tell how two dead bodies, one, a homeless man dead of natural causes and one a murder victim, a detective she had sometimes worked with albeit reluctantly (two deaths seemingly unrelated) were to dramatically impact her life.

    This does sound good. I love the idea of her “living in a renovated garage (designed like the interior of a ship) which she rents from a retired chef”. What a character! Another one for the waiting list, I think. My MMM today is http://indie-bookworm.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/my-third-blogpost-for-mystery-monday.html

      You’re spot on — she really is a character. And I love her digs as well. It sounds like a place I would really like to live — not only the design aspect but close to the beach and independent but with a connection to her landlord who kind of adopts her and is ready to help when needed. Thanks for participating.
