Kinsey Millhone fans, rejoice! Grafton's latest
is another riveting tale, albeit one that's a little different. Readers are clued in early to what's happening, as Kinsey and a sociopath trade off narrating the story. Seeing her from another perspective is an interesting touch in this tension-filled boxing match, with two formidable opponents going mano a mano. It might be the late '80s, but abuse of the elderly and identity theft couldn't be more relevant. Can't wait for U!

P.I. Kinsey Millhone is trying to mind her own business when she discovers her crotchety 89-year-old neighbor Gus Vronsky has taken a bad fall. His only family, an East Coast-based grandniece, hires private caretaker Solana Rojas to help him recover. Soon, Kinsey realizes something awful is going on and decides to investigate. But Solana proves to be a worthy adversary, and Kinsey finds herself on the defensive as she tries to figure out how to help Gus. What Kinsey doesn't recognize, until it's almost too late, is that she's in just as much trouble as Gus is! (PUTNAM, Dec., 400 pp., $26.95)
