Sue Grafton does it again. I'm always amazed at her ability to write an exciting mystery that takes place in the 80s, that doesn't feel dated. My one quibble with this book is that one character near the end of the book, Cappi, doesn't kill Kinsey and Pinky at Pinky's house. He has shown throughout the book that he has no qualms about killing people in order to protect secrets (or even just because), so I felt his departure from that a little convenient.
With only 4 more books in the series (unless she finds a way to name them beyond the end of the alphabet), she has so much more to explore, and I hope to see a little more of Kinsey's family in them.
