18 yr old murder solved, based on real case

I loved the dynamics of the threesome made up by Kinsey, Stacey and Dolan. The two men in particular with their ‘odd couple’ pairing were fabulous. I liked Kinsey having the chance to have a much more social investigation and how that brought her out of her slight loner tendencies when she works. ( )

I read some of her other books when I was in high school and liked them a lot. This one started out slow and ended quite abruptly. We went from having too many suspects to catching them red-handed in 1 chapter. But I enjoyed it and look forward to the next one. ( )

Book description
Q is for Quarry is based on an unsolved homicide that occurred in 1969, and Grafton's interest in the case has generated renewed police efforts. During the past year, the body was exhumed and a nationally known forensic artist did the facial reconstruction that appears in the closing pages of Q is for Quarry. Both Grafton and the dedicated members of the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department are hoping the photograph will trigger memories that may lead to a positive identification.
