Publisher Description

Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Nord Lafferty was already in his fifties when Reba was born, and he could deny her nothing. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institution for Women. Now, at thirty-two, she is about to be paroled, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers." "It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the rules of her parole. Maybe all of a week's work. Nothing untoward - the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good." But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than twenty-four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling round.

R is for Ricochet

Have always loved all of Sue Grafton's books..but somehow lost track of her a few years back while I was waitin for her to write the next one...how could I not love Kinsey, she eats peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, although she doesn't seem to know that they are best on raisin nut bread. And Henry, who could not hope that he lives forever. Certainly wish the alphabet was longer!...Maybe she can do numbers next! Hope so!

R is for ricochet

Grafton writing is always such a fun read until the end- the endings always fail. They require Kinsey to conveniently do something ridiculously stupid and completely out of character just to get to an ending. There are always obvious inconsistencies manufactured to get to these convenient endings. It reminds me of bad 70's television.- that we laugh at now because it is so amateurish.
