"F" is for Fugitive. (Kinsey Millhone, #6) (G.k. hall large print book)

by Sue Grafton

My name is Kinsey Millhone. I'm thirty-two years old, twice married, no kids, currently unattached and likely to remain so given my disposition, which is cautious at best . . .

Seventeen years had passed since Jean Timberlake's body had been found at the foot of the sea wall.

At the time, Bailey Fowler, an ex-boyfriend of hers, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter. Now he'd changed his tune.

Kinsey Millhone was called in to solve the case - then she stumbled on the dark secrets of a family's buried past . . .

I didn’t think this book was as good as the previous ones. There seemed to be a lot of emphasis on the setting, it was really slow going (I think I was over halfway through before there was a real clue), and the time line got confusing somewhere in the middle. They kept referring to things that that happened “this morning” or “last night” when I felt like there had been another day in between. I’m hoping Grafton gets back to “old form” in the next books.
