|In this adventure, Kinsey takes a missing person investigation against her better judgement. The referree for her new client -- the highly finished ex-wife of a prominent doctor -- is one of her past contacts, Dana Jaffe.|
Kinsey's investigation follows her usual style: keep picking at the pieces until a thread comes loose, and then unravel it.
Graftons' style is typical of the best of crime writing, and especially of that now popular genre, female dicks by female writers. She gives her characters depth, especially Kinsey and her friends. The work is carefully researched, and realistically presented. So realistically in fact that a fan used the methods followed by Kinsey to seek out and find Grafton herself.
