I'm not quite sure why I have read all of the alphabet mysteries. The author gives us such detail of the minutia of Kinsey Milhone's life, which apart from her cases is actually quite boring. Yet there is something comforting in the boredom. There has been little romance in her life, and her elderly neighbor and landlord, Henry is the sexiest man to appear in the series. The cases are all set in the mid-1980's so Kinsey solves mysteries the old-fashioned way - with notecards, reverse phone directories and pounding the pavement. No computer data bases for her and no cell phones.

U is for Undertow Involves the unsolved abduction of a young girl from over 20 years earlier. Michael Sutton's memory is triggered by a newspaper article - he remembers seeing two men burying something in the woods around the time of that abduction. Meanwhile, Kinsey learns more about her newly discovered family. There are a few twists and turns and enough of a hook to keep you reading.
