"T" is for trespass
Sue Grafton
Adult Fiction GRAFTON

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The 20th Kinsey Millhone crime novel (after 2005's S Is for Silence), a gripping, if depressing, tale of identify theft and elder abuse, displays bestseller Grafton's storytelling gifts. By default, Millhone, "a private investigator in the small Southern California town of Santa Teresa," assumes responsibility for the well-being of an old neighbor, Gus Vronsky, injured in a fall. After Vronsky's great-niece arranges to hire a home aide, Solana Rojas, Millhone begins to suspect that Rojas is not all that she seems. Since the reader knows from the start that an unscrupulous master manipulator has stolen the Rojas persona, the plot focuses not on whodunit but on the battle of wits Millhone wages with an unconventional and formidable adversary. Grafton's mastery of dialogue and her portrayal of the limits of good intentions make this one of the series' high points, even if two violent scenes near the end tidy up the pieces a little too neatly. Author tour. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Solana Rojas seems like a great caregiver, but actually she's a sociopath with elder abuse on her mind. The book is set in the Eighties but deals with issues that remain current. With a national tour. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
