'M' is for Malek Construction, the $40 million company that grew out of modest soil to become one of the big three in California. 'M' is for Malek family: four sons now nearing middle age who stand to inherit a fortune -- four men with very different temperaments and needs, linked only by blood and money. Eighteen years ago, one of them -- angry, troubled and in trouble -- went missing. 'M' is for Millhone, now hired to trace that missing black sheep brother. And, in brutal consequence, 'M' is for murder ...'Another treat from the alphabet queen' Daily Mail
"Exceptionally entertaining...an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice."-"San Francisco Chronicle""Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire...P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator...are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes."-"The Buffalo News" "Once a fan reads one of Grafton's alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found."--"Los Angeles Herald Examiner" "Millhone is a refreshingly strong and resourceful female private eye."--"Library Journal" "Tough but compassionate...There is no one better than Kinsey Millhone."--"Best Sellers""A woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner."--"Newsweek" "Lord, how I like this Kinsey Millhone...The best detective fiction I have read in years."--"The New York Times Book Review" "Smart, tough, and thorough...Kinsey Millhone is a pleasure."--"The Bloomsbury Review" "Kinsey is one of the most persuasive of the new female operatives...She's refreshingly free of gender cliches. Grafton, who is a very witty writer, has also given her sleuth a nice sense of humor--and a set of Wonder Woman sheets to prove it."--"Boston Herald""What grandpa used to call a class act."--Stanley Ellin "Smart, sexual, likable and a very modern operator."--Dorothy Salisbury Davis
Sue Grafton has become one of the most popular female writers, both in the UK and in the US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before Kinsey Millhone and the 'alphabet' series took off. She plans to take Kinsey all the way through the alphabet to Z. Sue lives and writes in Montecito, California and Louisville, Kentucky.
