Apparently, I missed the "T" in Sue Grafton's alphabet series, a series I've followed faithfully ever since it started. T Is for Trespass is a good read, but it goes in one too many directions. Grafton does tie everything together before the end of the story, but the real estate developer/girlfriend (neighbor and landlord Henry's girlfriend) angle seems somewhat contrived. Even so, Kinsey Millhone does her duty in order to save her grouchy neighbor Gus from a cunning caregiver who is intent upon doing Gus in. Her duty includes getting beaten up and dealing with deadbeats living in a rundown apartment building.

Grafton takes on the perils of growing old in our culture, succeeding in depicting the vulnerabiliy of the elderly to those who would prey on them.

This is entertaining escapist literature that contains enough social commentary to keep it interesting.
