Kinsey Millhone Mystery
It was a Thursday in November, the week before Thanksgiving, when Californian PI Kinsey Millhone first heard the sad story of Johnny Lee. The World War II fighter pilot had died a few months before and his grandson Bucky was trying to claim military funeral benefits. Except none of the authorities have any record of Fighter J. Lee. A case of mistaken identity? Or, as his son Chester argues, was the old man once a US spy? Perhaps Kinsey could make a few calls, straighten things out?
Kinsey has little to go on - until she hears Johnny's apartment has been broken into and ransacked. In the debris Chester and Bucky have uncovered a hidden safe. And in that safe is a mysterious key marked LAWLESS...
That night, Kinsey pops out for some milk - and ends up on a plane to Dallas, on the trail of the dark stranger she sees leaving Lee's empty apartment. With little money, no clean clothes, and a suspicious hotel supervisor on her back, she's living on her wits. Then she finds herself pursued by a fire-raising psychopath bearing a forty-year-old grudge...
And on top of that she's got to get home fast for a very important wedding...
With L is for Lawless Sue Grafton nears the halfway point of her dazzling alphabet of crime. The twelfth mystery in a compulsively addictive series is a thrilling roller coaster ride through Texas and Kentucky on the trail of long-buried treasure and desperate hard men.
