"B" Is For Burglar by Sue Grafton

Published: 1985

Pages: 320 pages

5 stars

The second book in the alphabet series featuring the private investigator Kinsey Millhone.

She is approached by a Beverly Danziger who is looking for her sister Elaine Boldt to sign some formal papers, so Kinsey is hired to find her. She thought it would be easy, only to find herself in a missing persons case upgraded to solving a mystery of the death of the missing lady's neighbor.

Fast paced interesting twists and turns. Very enjoyable fast read!

"B" Is for Burglar was awarded the 1986 Anthony Award for Best Novel at Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, in Baltimore, Maryland. The novel also won the 1986 Shamus Award for Best Novel from the Private Eye Writers of America

I am so ashamed to admit this, but I have never read a book by this author. :( Shame on me.

You really should, it's very good!
But do start the alphabet from the beginning, that's what everyone told me although I would have done it anyways :)
I have many authors whom I wish to read for and never done so, so no problem we will get there one day ;)
