Sunday Synopsis


F is for Fugitive (Kinsey Millhone, #6)F is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked this Kinsey Millhone mystery, and it was an easy, quick read. Kinsey is hired to look into a 17 year old case for which the client's son was convicted and sent to prison This man escaped from prison one year after his sentencing and for the last (almost) 17 years has been living a respectable life with a respectable job... in another state, of course. He made a mistake and finds himself captured.

My first question was... if his sentence is as short as it was, why would he escape? Next question is how could he assume someone else's identity without hurting someone else?

These were initial questions, of course. This crime took place in the small town of Floral Beach on the Pacific Ocean that measures about six blocks. Everyone knows everyone. The escapee's aging father hires Kinsey. She unearths secret after secret that is buried in this little town, and without getting herself killed (not that someone didn't try), she is able to solve the crime and make things right.

I actually figured this one out fairly early, but of course, I had to continue reading to find out if my hunch was correct as well as to get the answers to the other mysteries, and there were several. There were some interesting characters and never a dull moment. The one thing that bothered me quite a bit is when an older man said, "Fancypants new computer system..." I cannot picture this man saying, "Fancypants."

Kinsey often reminds me of Stephanie Plum. They are women working in a male-dominated field. They're edgy, humorous, and likable despite her mistakes. If you enjoy Janet Evanovich, you will probably like the Kinsey Millhone series.
