About the Author

Sue Grafton is one of the most popular female writers in the UK and US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before the Kinsey Millhone novels became international bestsellers. In 2008 she was awarded the Crime Writers' Association's Cartier Diamond Dagger for her outstanding contribution to the genre. Sue wrote twenty-five novels in her alphabet series featuring Private Investigator Kinsey Millhone, most recently Y is for Yesterday, before her death in California in December 2017.

Reviews

Grafton once again proves herself a superb storyteller * Publishers Weekly *
This will leave readers both relishing another masterful entry and ruing the near-end of this series. Prime Grafton * Booklist *
Grafton constructs an intricate plot following two time lines with at least a dozen characters in play while rarely slowing the pace * Library Journal *
I'm going to miss Kinsey Millhone. Ever since the first of Sue Grafton's Alphabet mysteries, A Is For Alibi, came out in 1982, Kinsey has been a good friend and the very model of an independent woman, a gutsy Californian P.I. rocking a traditional man's job . . . It's Kinsey herself who keeps this series so warm and welcoming. She's smart, she's resourceful, and she's tough enough to be sensitive on the right occasions * New York Times *
Y Is for Yesterday is one of the strongest novels in the series as the beloved lady sleuth Kinsey Millhone, the perennial main character, is hired to investigate the aftermath of a ten-year-old murder involving high-school students. The milieu - wealth and privilege in a beautiful California setting - is enticing, as are the cast of colourful regulars. This story of teenagers gone bad runs in parallel with a deadly threat to Kinsey's life, and the ending is truly satisfying, in more ways than one. * The Times *
