Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Learning the ABC's has never been so fun

The Kinsey Milhone Alphabet Mystery Series:  A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton
Adult Mystery

This book is the first one is a series of 26 the author is writing about featured detective Kinsey Milhone.  While Gfaton is nearing the end of the alphabet, I thought it was high time I jumped into the excitement.

Kinsey is a no-nonsense chick. Part insurance claim detective and part private investigator, she lives in a pole barn garage and likes to drink beer.  She is a very masculine female detective and while these types usually turn me off, for some reason, I found I really liked her style.

A woman just out of prison hires Kinsey to find out who murdered her husband, a crime the woman was convicted of and imprisoned for.  While working the case, Kinsey soon encounters another murder and is on the case of a client whom she doesn't really know is guilty or not.  During her investigation, Kinsey gets involved with a man who just might turn into a suspect.  While it's against her moral code to mix business with pleasure, she can't seem to stop the attraction.

There is plenty of mystery and turns for any reader to sink his or her teeth into and it's easy to see why this series has prospered for so long.  On to the B's!
