Another good episode in the Kinsey Milhone series. This one didn't have as interesting of a plot as some others in the series, but it was still good. I wasn't able to figure out the killer until the end, but when I did figure it out, everything made sense.

Review; F Is For Fugitive by Sue Grafton.

This is one out of the alphabetic series of Sue Grafton’s. I find it not as thrilling as some others in the series. It didn’t materialize the suspense to carry the story to the end. In places a little boring.

The story was about a man found guilty of murder. He was then incarcerated but escaped from prison two years into his sentence and became a fugitive at large for sixteen years. He was caught and that is when Kinsey Malhone, private investigator was hired by the guy’s father to dig into the files of the court case of his son who was accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend years before. The father felt his son was innocent, but was he? The story went on but it just lacked the thrill of the investigation and the events that described the scenario surrounding the murder.

The story was ok and I finished the book, however I was disappointed with this book of the series.

Not a very interesting read. For me there was a lot of loose end left and the story line itself was very thin. Not satisfying at all. ( )

good one in her series

When Kinsey Millhone first arrives in Floral Beach, California, it’s hard for her to picture the idyllic coastal town as the setting of a brutal murder. Seventeen years ago, the body of Jean Timberlake—a troubled teen who had a reputation with the boys—was found on the beach. Her boyfriend Bailey Fowler was convicted of her murder and imprisoned, but he escaped.

Journeyman work from an experienced writer.

Lots of lame similes and metaphors and over use of the word "really"; really?

I expected better quality writing from a master author.

Her editor shouldn't have let it go to press as poorly written as it is. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312939043, Mass Market Paperback)

When Kinsey Millhone first arrives in Floral Beach, California, it’s hard for her to picture the idyllic coastal town as the setting of a brutal murder. Seventeen years ago, the body of Jean Timberlake—a troubled teen who had a reputation with the boys—was found on the beach. Her boyfriend Bailey Fowler was convicted of her murder and imprisoned, but he escaped.

After all this time, Bailey’s finally been captured. Believing in his son’s innocence, Bailey’s father wants Kinsey to find Jean’s real killer. But most of the residents in this tight-knit community are convinced Bailey strangled Jean. So why are they so reluctant to answer Kinsey’s questions? If there’s one thing Kinsey’s got plenty of it’s persistence. And that’s exactly what it’s going to take to crack the lid on this case.

As Kinsey gets closer to solving Jean’s murder, the more dirty little secrets she uncovers in a town where everyone has something to hide—and a killer will kill again to keep the past buried...
