Sue Grafton's novels are small and yummy, like a mental Hershey's kiss. I love the way she sets up multiple potential "solutions" to her mysteries, so that you can rarely ever figure them out ahead of time. Because what a bummer that is. The best thing about this series is Kinsey Milhone. She's tough without being manly, feisty without being mean. This woman loves her independence and thinks that being single is almost as wonderful as being rich. I keep coming back just to see what she'll eat next (a brown paper bag full of peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches?) and to see if she'll pull out that one dress she has that never has to be ironed and is usually at the bottom of her bag or stashed somewhere in her VW. In D is for Deadbeat, Kinsey tracks down the murderer of her client who's check bounced. He was a drunk, a bigamist, and a killer, but Kinsey feels like she owes it to him and his daughter to figure out who offed him and why. Interesting twists, satisfying and haunting resolution. Well done.
