In the 2nd installment of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series, B is for Burglar, Kinsey Milhone was back for her second case. This one took her to Florida and California. It started with a missing persons case and came unraveling to something else. Kinsey had gotten herself embroiled into this mess and into a heap of hot water. We watched how she connected the puzzle to an arson/murder case and a dash of stolen identity. With a cast of unsavory and suspicious characters, she made new friends and allies and some troubling enemies. Coast to coast, she had some nasty run-ins to cause interference along her way. And at the thick of it, she came face to the face with a heartless cold-blooded killer, putting herself into some danger to the end.
This was another terrific mystery in the Kinsey Millhone series. I did feel sorry for Kinsey for getting tangled into something of a hot mess. I did feel bad for her, when she came close to danger and receiving enemies along the way. I loved the dual locations of California and Florida for this storyline. This made for a light read in one sitting that you can put down. Great drama, good concept, and intriguing mystery and action to tie up loose ends in the climax.
