This series is a guilty pleasure for me. Well, mysteries as a genre are, but one of my college English profs got me hooked on Sue Grafton. This was neither my favorite nor least favorite I've read. I actually liked it because we delved some into Kinsey's personal past, which Grafton tended to shy away from in the earlier books in the series. It was sort of cool to see Kinsey swept up in trying to take care of her ex-husband, who she hadn't seen or spoken to in 14 years, by figuring out what he was working on before he was shot and finishing it for him. I wanted a little more action, though - nothing really action-y happens until the last chapter of the book, and even the action there is kinda lame. I never got the feeling that she was really and truly in any mortal danger, which takes away from the excitement. It was still pretty interesting, and overall, I enjoyed it.
