A word about Sue Grafton and all the wonderful words she put together to create her amazing series, affectionately known as the “alphabet mysteries.”
Her heroine, Kinsey Millhone, likes peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, which she makes quickly in her mini house, rented from her beloved neighbor and dear friend, Henry. Kinsey has one black dress, suitable for any formal occasion, which rolls up easily and is made from some never-creasing fabric. She's compassionate, perceptive, and smart—oh so smart.
We worked our way through the alphabet with Kinsey, and, as so often happens with a quirky and endearing fictional character, we grew to love her.
Thank you, Sue Grafton. Thank you for all the pleasure you brought us. And although you left us before you got to Z, we are ready to start again with A.
