V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)
Title: V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Mystery)
Author: Sue Grafton
A latest entry in the best-selling series that includes U is for Undertow finds Kinsey Millhone receiving for her 38th birthday a facial punch that leaves her with a broken nose and two black eyes before tackling a suspicious suicide involving a host of unscrupulous characters.
A spiderweb of dangerous relationships lies at the heart of V is for Vengeance, Sue Grafton’s daring new Kinsey Millhone novel.
A woman with a murky past who kills herself-or was it murder? A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt who thinks he can beat the system. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring working for the Mob, racking up millions from stolen goods. A wandering husband, rich and ruthless. A dirty cop so entrenched on the force he is immune to exposure. A sinister gangster, conscienceless and brutal. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers, which may be worse than the pain of his loss. A private detective, Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose.
And an elegant and powerful businessman whose dealings are definitely outside the law: the magus at the center of the web.
V: Victim. Violence. Vengeance.
