F is for Fugitive - Sue Grafton This time Kinsey Millhone is asked to find out who really killed Jean Timberlake 17 years ago in a little berg called Floral Beach. She is stonewalled by just about everybody and the ones talking aren't being honest so how is Kinsey to uncover the truth. Well in typical Kinsey fashion, she messes the clues until something actually makes sense. This isn't my favorite of the series. In fact I almost gave up on it as all of the characters are unlikable and irritating. I'm glad I stuck it out because the killer was definitely a surprise.

Truth to tell, I found this earlier Kinsey book to be rather boring. The later books in the series are much better written with the intent to keep the readers interest. It's okay to have an annoying character but when it's every single one of them, it makes reading difficult.
