Review

"As this master of suspense continues to demonstrate in superb mystery after mystery, there are more ugly twists in the human heart than there are letters in the alphabet."
-"Entertainment Weekly"

"It's as if Grafton purposely begins with a standard situation-and then gleefully sets about breaking every cardinal rule of the mystery novel."
-"Los Angeles Times Book Review"

Praise for U is for Undertow

"Has this reliable series lost its addictive appeal? Not at all."--Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"Arresting prose...[a] brilliantly inventive novel."--Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Makes me wish there were more than twenty-six letters at her disposal."--Maureen Corrian, NPR.org

"Her most structurally complex, psychologically potent book to date."--Los Angeles Times

More Praise for Sue Grafton and the Alphabet Series

"I'm going to miss Kinsey Millhone. Ever since the first of Sue Grafton's Alphabet mysteries, A Is For Alibi, came out in 1982, Kinsey has been a good friend and the very model of an independent woman, a gutsy Californian P.I. rocking a traditional man's job...it's Kinsey herself who keeps this series so warm and welcoming. She's smart, she's resourceful, and she's tough enough to be sensitive on the right occasions."--New York Times Book Review

"The consistent quality and skillful innovations in this alphabet series justify all the praise these books have received over the past 35 years."--Wall Street Journal

"A superb storyteller."--Publishers Weekly

"Grafton's endless resourcefulness in varying her pitches in this landmark series, graced by her trademark self-deprecating humor, is one of the seven wonders of the genre."--Kirkus Reviews

"Grafton is a writer of many strengths--crisp characterizations, deft plotting, and eloquent dialogue among them--and she has kept her long-running alphabet mystery series fresh and each new release more welcome than the last."--Louisville Courier-Journal

"[Grafton's] ability to give equal weight to the story of the detective and the detective story sets her apart in the world of crime fiction."--Richmond Times-Dispatch --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
