I loved s is for silence by sue grafton. This is another one of the Kinsey books, and I feel like they just get better and better! True, we don't get much about Kinsey and her life in this book… it's focused on the disapearance of a woman named Violet, back in 1953, which is 33 or so years before the present time of this novel it's set in the late 80s. I love Cold Case on tv, and this was just like one. Kinsey is going back to the town to try to dig up clues on this really old mystery, and mixed in are stories from the point of view of various characters, happening back in the days leading up to her dissapearance way back then. I love seeing how people were then and now. She builds the characters so well, I got right into the story. And, the whole time, you're wondering, which of these people whose heads I've been in may be a killer… and you're hoping that Violet just ran away. Do read this book, which works fine as a stand-alone book if you haven't read the rest of the series.
