Publisher Description

Lorna Kepler was beautiful and willful, a loner who couldn't resist flirting with danger. Maybe that's what killed her.

Her death had raised a host of tough questions. The cops suspected homicide, but they could find neither motive nor suspect. Even the means were mysterious: Lorna's body was so badly decomposed when it was discovered that they couldn't be certain she hadn't died of natural causes. In the way of overworked cops everywhere, the case was gradually shifted to the back burner and became another unsolved file.

Only Lorna's mother kept it alive, consumed by the certainty that somebody out there had gotten away with murder.

In the ten months since her daughter's death, Janice Kepler had joined a support group, trying to come to terms with her loss and her anger. It wasn't helping. And so, leaving a session one evening and noticing a light on in the offices of Millhone Investigations, she knocked on the door.

In answering that knock, Kinsey Millhone is pulled into the netherworld of unavenged murder, where only a pact with the devil will satisfy the restless ghosts of the victims and give release to the living they have left behind.

Eleven books into the series that has won her readers around the world, Sue Grafton takes a darkside turn, pitching us into a shadow land of pain and grief where killers still walk free, unaccused, unpunished, unrepentant. With "K" is for Killer she offers a tale that is dark, complex, and deeply disturbing.

K is for Killer

Chapters were missing. Download was incomplete. A waste of money!

K is for killer

What an awful book!!! Feel like I not only wasted my money but my time. Felt like I was totally left hanging. What was the motive here? Too much philosophy here & no factual closing. Very disappointing & frustrating!!!

The first disappointing book

While I enjoyed the colorful discovery of the victims, the character development is lacking for the suspects, and is missing that spark of Kinsey. I still don't understand the killers motivation, and how the puzzle pieces fit. It's almost as if this wasn't written by Ms. Grafton at all.
