    SUE GRAFTON entered the mystery field in 1982 with the publication of 'A' IS
    FOR ALIBI, which introduced female hard-boiled private investigator, Kinsey
    Millhone, operating out of the fictional town of Santa Teresa, (a.k.a. Santa
    Barbara) California. 'B' IS FOR BURGLAR followed in l985 and since then,
    she has added 17 novels to the series, now referred to as 'the alphabet'
    mysteries. In addition, she's published eight Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, has written numerous movies for television, including "A Killer in the Family" (starring Robert Mitchum), "Love on the Run" (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist) and two Agatha Christie adaptations, "Sparkling Cyanide" and "Caribbean Mystery," which starred Helen Hayes.

    READ THE SENSATIONAL BLOCKBUSTER THAT STARTED IT ALL!

    Take it from the top in #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton’s knockout thriller that introduced detective Kinsey Millhone—and a hot new attitude—to crime fiction…

    A IS FOR AVENGER
    A tough-talking former cop, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has set up a modest detective agency in a quiet corner of Santa Teresa, California. A twice-divorced loner with few personal possessions and fewer personal attachments, she’s got a soft spot for underdogs and lost causes.

    A IS FOR ACCUSED
    That’s why she draws desperate clients like Nikki Fife. Eight years ago, she was convicted of killing her philandering husband. Now she’s out on parole and needs Kinsey’s help to find the real killer. But after all this time, clearing Nikki’s bad name won’t be easy.

    A IS FOR ALIBI
    If there’s one thing that makes Kinsey Millhone feel alive, it’s playing on the edge. When her investigation turns up a second corpse, more suspects, and a new reason to kill, Kinsey discovers that the edge is closer—and sharper—than she imagined.

    • Just in time for Christmas

      This came on Christmas Eve along with the second book of the series. I'm sure my wife would have loved them except I forgot to double check the shipping address.. they went to my old house from 4 years ago. But they were a great price and did land before Christmas, even with all the snow. Guess the people that bought my old house got a present from Santa after all.
