I’ve read a couple of the Kinsey Millhone books before, but figured there’s no harm in starting the collection again now that they’ve almost finished the end of the alphabet! I remember enjoying it and my second read through highlighted just why.
It’s a straight forward private investigator story, digging into the details of an old case, so it’s a lot of fun to trawl through the evidence with Kinsey and try and make educated guesses as the truth draws ever closer.
But what I really enjoy is Kinsey herself - isolated, snippy, tense, quiet, regimented, and very direct. The writing is short, sharp and to the point, quite detailed in places, but thorough and makes it as though you are reading a report of what actually happened rather than a fictional event.
