I've read many of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series and since her latest edition, V is for Vengeance is just being released, I figured I'd go ahead and read the few volumes I have yet to read. I suppose that it's bad that I've read the series completely out of order, but for some reason, it hasn't dampened my enjoyment of the stories.

This was an engaging story and a fast read. There were a few plot twists that I didn't expect and a gut-wrenching ending. The story provided some more background information on the relationship between Kinsey and Jonah and although I've read these books completely out of order, I like to see how their relationship develops. Although many of her stories feel like they are right out of the eighties, this one seems a bit less anchored in that decade. I love that she spends time at the library doing research, although now most of that data is available over the internet. Overall, it's a very entertaining read.
