Since Sue Grafton died I have been re-reading her books. This was a good one
Is it fraud? Is it murder? Is it suicide?
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Kinsey's old insurance partners hire her to find a guy who faked his suicide five years before to get out from under a Ponzi scheme indictment.
WHAT I LIKED:
Kinsey heads off to Mexico to find the guy, spots him, comes back, and starts inserting herself over ten days into the life of his ex-family, all of whom thought he was dead. Add in a current girlfriend, an ex-cop, and an old business partner, and there are lots of things happening at the same time. And just for fun, Kinsey finds out she has family up around Lompoc.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
There is an almost ridiculous story about one of the sub-characters -- he's introduced initially as a buffoon, and then later as an almost master-criminal, and in neither instance is he either. While Kinsey's new family interactions are a bit of a distraction, the real challenge is with the banal ugliness of the ex-suicider's family interactions, particularly a young pregnant girl with a baby.
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.
