LoveReading View on A is for Alibi a Kinsey Millhone Mystery

July 2013 Guest Editor Cath Staincliffe on A is for Alibi...

Sue Grafton’s private eye, Kinsey Millhone, walking the mean streets of Santa Teresa was part of the inspiration for my own character Sal Kilkenny.  Kinsey is an independent, single, fiercely moral heroine with an engaging, self-deprecating voice who brings tenacity and intelligence to solving the mysteries her clients present her with.

A is for Alibi a Kinsey Millhone Mystery Synopsis

'My name is Kinsey Millhone. I'm a private investigator, licensed by the state of California. I'm thirty-two years old, twice divorced, no kids. The day before yesterday I killed someone and the fact weighs heavily on my mind ...' When Laurence Fife was murdered, few cared. A slick divorce attorney with a reputation for ruthlessness, Fife was also rumoured to be a slippery ladies' man. Plenty of people in the picturesque Southern California town of Santa Teresa had reason to want him dead. Including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, Nikki. With motive, access and opportunity, Nikki was their number one suspect. The Jury thought so too. Eight years later and out on parole, Nikki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed her husband. But the trail has gone cold and there is a chilling twist even Kinsey didn't expect ...'Will keep you awake until the last page has been turned' Daily Mail
