Sue Grafton

I was first introduced to Sue Grafton’s books, when a friend of mine, Peggy, sent me a copy of a book called “D is for Deadbeat”. The copy was in German and when I started reading the book I really felt a bit strange, because it was all about an American female detective, in the 80’s, but the story was so interesting, that I couldn’t put it down. Kinsey Millhone, is investigating a murder…
After a few months, as I was browsing books at a big bookstore, I came across
“Q is for Quarry”, this time in English and I immediately bought it. This time Kinsey is trying to find information about a murder dated back in 1969. This was actually a true story which has not been solved yet.
I continued with
"S" Is for Silence, a missing person case and “R for Ricochet”, which I read just yesterday in just one day!!!
Although it is not philosophy, or anything “important”, Sue Grafton’s books are just the thing, if you just want to relax and enjoy a good detective story. It's just like watching a movie!! So simple!
I am planning on reading the whole “alphabet” series, whenever I find the time!!!

Hi Dora,
So I got you hooked on a new author :-)) Well', I really like her books too, and yesterday, as I was at the supermarket there was a booth with books-on-sale and guess what : I found another one by Sue Grafton ;-)
