tres•pass \'tres-p s\ n: a transgression of law involving one’s obligations to God or to one’s neighbor; a violation of moral law; an offense; a sin –Webster’s New International Dictionary (second edition, unabridged)
In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton’s T is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the perspective of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private care-giving jobs. The true horror of this novel builds with excruciating tension as the listener foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The wrenching suspense lies in whether Kinsey Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene.
T is for Trespass–dealing with issues of identity theft, elder abuse, betrayal of trust, and the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependent–targets an all-too-real rip in the social fabric. Grafton takes us into far darker territory than she has ever traversed, leaving us with a true sense of the horror embedded in the seeming ordinariness of the world we think we know. The result is terrifying.

T is for terrific
By far this was the best of the alphabet series for me. The story was suspenseful and kept me on the edge of me seat for the entire listen. At times I wanted to jump in and help out. Kudos to Judy Kaye for another great read...
T is for Trespass: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery
I have been a fan of Sue and Kinsey forever and this one had me so on the edge of my seat that at about two-thirds of the way through the book I had to read the last chapter because I couldn't take the suspense anymore! I was so wrapped up in it that I was actually afraid for Kinsey! I have never ever EVER read a last chapter before to find out how it ends until I read my way to it of course. Phew! This is a great ride; I suggest you get your tickets now!
BOOORRRIIINNNGGG & Grating Narration
Boring - and the reader's voice is actually really grating.
I was so disappointed in how Grafton translated to audio; I have been a fan of her print for a long time. Maybe I will try another letter, but if they are like this story they won't be worth the money.
