D Is For Deadbeat  - Sue Grafton

Again, Sue Grafton has written a completely different type book from the 3 that precede it in the series. She always manages to come up with something new for Kinsey Millhone. The only flaw I find in the books is that Kinsey, at times, seems so patronizing about the normal things that regular people do in their day-to-day lives. I get that she's independent with no family ties and feels no need to do the socially acceptable things but she really seems to look down on those who do have family ties and like doing the socially acceptable things. That is the only thing that mars my enjoyment of an excellent set of mysteries. I'll keep reading them as long as Sue Grafton keeps writing them.
