I always enjoy Kinsey Millhone stories, some better than others. This one was middle of the pack for me. There isn't much mystery involved since Kinsey is to find out if someone is alive or not and we know that answer to that in the first few pages. The rest of the story is the consequences of knowing that. Kinsey doesn't do as much of the day-to-day detective work that I enjoy reading about. She does do a lot of talking to the people involved in the whole affair and so our answers come mainly from those conversations. I enjoy this entry into Kinsey's world but it's not as gripping as some of the others.Other reviews, mainly negative, mention that there is an excessive amount of detail and that is probably true but it doesn't change my enjoyment of the book. I find her turn-by-turn driving descriptions a little tedious at times but never enough to make me want to put the book down.If you've just getting to know Kinsey, start with A is for Alibi. If you're already a fan, you'll enjoy this one.
