A is for Alibi is the first book in Sue Grafton's alphabet mystery series,
Kinsey Millhone a 32-year-old Private Investigator living in California. I have just started this series, but I really enjoyed this book. The mystery keeps pages turning as it fascinating, suspenseful and a real fast read. The character Kinsey is very independent, you feel as you now know her, and she is portrayed as somebody you do know. Nikki Fife has just been released from prison after doing 8 years for the murdering her husband, Laurence. Nikki wants Kinsey to find the person who really killed Laurence Kinsey begins to investigate and finds out about another murder committed only days after Laurence's that is extremely similar. The victim was the accountant for Laurence's law firm, Libby Glass, and she was killed using an identical method of poisoning. This trail is 8-years-old, and Kinsey knows it won't be easy to find the truth. Kinsey begins to put together a picture of the people involved and the circumstances that led up to Laurence's murder. But somebody is not too pleased with Kinsey investigating and unveiling facts that could lead to the true murderer. Kinsey gets herself into danger, and as she struggles to put the pieces together, someone is trying to stop ( )

After reading the first books in this series in the early 1990's, I recently started listening to the audiobooks. "A" is for Alibi has not aged well in some regards. 30 years ago, I probably found the description of individuals to be a sign of a good description. Now, the emphasis on people's weight and mannerisms feels unnecessarily cold and dated - unnecessarily judgemental. The author's choice of descriptions and analogies didn't work for me. Furthermore, the characters are flat. After listening to the first two books (A and B), I don't know - or care - about Kinsey Milhone at all. But then again, I never cared about Perry Mason either.

That said, the mystery was still entertaining. As a result, I didn't lower my rating. ( )

A bit too many characters for me to keep a track of and too many motives. I get the feeling her writing will improve with later books and I need a new series to read so will persevere. ( )

I have been meaning to read these for years, and I just never got around to it. So when I needed something different this week, I picked it up fromm the library and chugged on.

It starts out a bit slow but once you hit about the 70% mark, the rest of the book seems to fly by in heart pounding action. I have read largely young adult novels for the last couple of years, so a good mystery seems to be just what I had needed right now.

Kinsey Millhone is the type of character that any woman can relate to. She could be any one of us. No special powers, no hidden abilities, just raw nerves of steel and the refusal to let a question go unanswered.

The characters in this novel are complex and while part of me saw the ending coming, feeling like it had been choreographed a bit, I was still surprised at the ending and how it played out.

If you want a good heart pounding, intense mystery, this is definitely the book to read. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )
