Told from three different points of view, this book, like the “U” mystery, seems to be inflated to be a fat book; "V" also seems to be trying for a mainstream novel plot. We have the mafia, we have rich bored women with their gossip and affairs, and we have the little good-hearted but dangerous crook. We have a LOT of product placement. The character of Kinsey is flat and uncertain, the situations contrived. Kinsey tells us every turn she takes while driving, every step she takes while cleaning, every thing she eats. I would say Grafton needed the aid of a much stronger blue pencil - but in that case she’d end up with a short story. Very disappointing.

I wish Kinsey were real, I’d love to take her out for a quarter-pounder.

Kinsey turns in a shoplifter while buying new ‘undies’ on sale and so begins her twenty-second story on her nearly 38th birthday. It’s a tangled web of plots involving stolen goods, the Mob, unexplained suicides, betrayal, and revenge with characters both new and appearing again. This mystery has more pages and a more intricate plot than some of Grafton’s series. I thought it was very well done and just turned page after page to the finish.
