Book Review: B is for Burglar

I finally got around to reading the second Sue Grafton book, B is for Burglar.

Basic Summary (Courtesy of Amazon):

Although business has been slow lately for P.I. Kinsey Millhone, she’s reluctant to take on the case of locating Beverly Danziger’s sister Elaine Boldt. It’s a small matter that Beverly should be able to handle herself. So why is she enlisting Kinsey’s services? Beverly claims she needs Elaine’s signature on some documents so that she can collect a small inheritance. But the whole affair doesn’t sit well with Kinsey. And if there’s something she’s learned in her line of work, it’s to always follow your instincts…

Kinsey’s hunch proves true when she begins her inquiries into Elaine’s whereabouts and discovers that the attractive widow was last seen in a flashy lynx coat boarding a plane for Boca Raton. But the more Kinsey searches for Elaine the more questions she encounters. Is Elaine’s disappearance tied in to the brutal murder several months ago of one of her bridge partners? And what happened to Elaine’s Persian cat who seems to have also vanished?

Things take a turn for the worse when a stranger vandalizes the home of one of Elaine’s neighbors and another neighbor turns up murdered. With her reputation and career on the line, Kinsey risks all to find a missing woman and a killer who’s waiting in the shadows to strike again…

My Thoughts:

Oh mi goodness. Seriously. I wrapped up my review of A is for Alibi by saying I couldn’t wait to see what happened when Sue Grafton hit her stride with Kinsey. Bam, she done it by book two.

I copied great lines on my kindle. Not really something I do normally but some of them were so stinking good I had to take note.

“I figure guys are like Whitman’s Sampler. I like to take a little bite out of each and then move on before the whole box gets stale.”

“Abruptly, she moved back and let me into the house with the attitude of someone using the f word under her breath.”

I will be reading C thru Z now. I won’t review them all for you. Just the ones that make me highlight on my kindle.
