"M" is for money. Lots of it. "M" is for Malek Construction, the $40 million company that grew out of modest soil to become one of the big three in California construction, one of the few still in family hands. "M" is for the Malek family: four sons now nearing middle age who stand to inherit a fortune - four men with very different outlooks, temperaments, and needs, linked only by blood and money. Eighteen years ago, one of them - angry, troubled, and in trouble - went missing. "M" is for Millhone, hired to trace that missing black sheep brother. "M" is for memories, none of them happy. The bitter memories of an embattled family. This prodigal son will find no welcome at his family's table. "M" is for malice. And in brutal consequence, "M" is for murder, the all-too-common outcome of familial hatreds.
From the Publisher:
At the request of the Malek family, owners of a multi-million-dollar construction company, private detective Kinsey Millhone is hired to trace the missing brother of the troubled and embattled clan, eighteen years after he had vanished without a trace
Author Bio
Sue Grafton
The daughter of lawyer and mystery writer C. W. Grafton, Sue Grafton attended the University of Louisville where she graduated with a B.A. in 1961. She published her first novel, "Keziah", in 1967. While working on the screen adaption of her second novel, "The Lolly-Madonna War", in 1973, Grafton began a 15-year career writing for television and film in Hollywood. In 1982 she wrote her first mystery to feature private investigator Kinsey Millhone, "'A' is for Alibi". Each successive installation in this popular series of novels has begun with the next letter of the alphabet. Millhone, twice-divorced and living on her own, is a tough, independent woman, one the first and most successful of a new breed of female detectives to branch off from the hard-boiled, male detectives who have dominated the genre. Grafton's biography, "'G' is for Grafton", goes further in describing Millhone than it does her creator, although it does illuminate the many similarities between the two. Grafton had three children in her two marriages previous to her third, to writing partner Steven Humphrey. For years, she has lived in Santa Barbara, which serves as a model for the fictional town of Santa Teresa, where Millhone is based.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Polished heartfelt work from Grafton..." 09/01/1996

Spectator
"She [Kinsey Millhone] is altogether a more rounded and presentable heroine for the reader to engage with, and "M is for Malice" delivers a nicely intricate plot." - Harriet Waugh 04/05/1997
