G is for Gumshoe is the seventh in the Kinsey Millhone mystery series by Sue Grafton.
For the record, the name is Kinsey Millhone. Private investigator. One hundred and eighteen pounds of female in a five-foot six-inch frame. Just turned thirty-three (after what seemed like an interminable twelve months of being thirty-two) . . .
Three things happened on May 5, the day everyone sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Kinsey Millhone.
The repairs were completed on her apartment, and she moved back in. She was hired by Mrs Clyde Gersh to bring her mother back from the Mojave Desert.
And lastly, a real surprise. The news that she’d made one of the top slots on Tyrone Patty’s hit list . . .
California PI Kinsey Millhone, hired to investigate the disappearance of a client's eccentric, elderly mother, must also evade a vengeful criminal whom she helped put away four years earlier. ``Grafton creates . . . a twist in the complex plot to tease Bronte fans, and a new, vulnerable side to the still-sardonic Kinsey,'' said PW. ``The only complaint is that it ends abruptly.''
