Finally a new Sue Grafton book! I really do enjoy this series. V is for Vengeance is up there with the other best books in this alphabet series: the first 5 (A through E) and the last 5 (Q through U). This book was different than the others in that even more time was spent fleshing out other protagonists than Kinsey. In this case, the interesting, intriguing and actually likable character of Dante. A man living outside the law in many ways and yet honorable and demonstrating integrity throughout. The plot was intricate and satisfying with the pieces of the puzzle gradually falling neatly into place due to Kinsey's diligence and hard work. Kinsey's great; believable, likable and yet far from perfect. I love her stakeout scenes and the comedy of errors that follows her around as she's unrelentingly trying to get to the bottom of each case. Her best quality, other than her persistence is her loyalty to those she likes: like Henry and, in this book, Pinky (the ex-convict). It was interesting to see how Dante picked up these qualities in her and relied on her to "do the right thing" in the end. A great book and highly recommended. I can't wait until "W".
