When Laurence Fife was murdered, few mourned his passing. A prominent divorce attorney with a reputation for single-minded ruthlessness on behalf of his clients, Fife was also rumored to be a dedicated philanderer. Plenty of people in the picturesque southern California town of Santa Teresa had a reason to want him dead. Including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, Nikki. With motive, access, and opportunity, Nikki was their number-one suspect. The jury thought so, too.

Eight years later and out on parole, Niki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed her late husband.

A trail that is eight years cold. A trail that reaches out to enfold a bitter, wealthy, and foul-mouthed old woman and a young boy, born deaf, whose memory cannot be trusted. A trail that leads to a lawyer defensively loyal to a dead partner--and disarmingly attractive to Millhone; to an ex-wife, brave, lucid, lovely--and still angry over Fife's betrayal of her; to a not-so-young secretary with too high a salary for too few skills--and too many debts left owing: The trail twists to include them all, with Millhone following every turn until it finally twists back on itself and she finds herself face-to-face with a killer cunning enough to get away with murder.

    Don't bother with this one, it's so boring that after awhile I skipped to the end.......through endless pages of unnecessary words. Yawn. Only $2.99 and not worth a penny of it.
  • Very captivating

    Well written and easy to read. I had a hard time putting it down even though it was way late and I worked really early! Suspenseful! Starting on "B".

  • 'A is for alibi'

    Sue Grafton is a most talented writer. Though alphabetical, I started with 'O is for outlaw' then continued through all letters to the current release, 'W is for wasted,'...and now I just read 'A is for alibi.' Ms. Grafton's story telling is brilliant. Enthralling...page turning anticipation.
  • Couldn't put it down

    Clever and hard to put down.
  • Good but not amazing

    By Dearnina
    Kinsley makes a great leading lady and the writing is engaging but I figured who the culprit was as soon as the person was introduced.
