From the Publisher:
Of the #1 New York Times?bestselling Kinsey Millhone series, NPR said, ?Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.?

Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I?d never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue.

The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He?d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He?d been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone?s name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.

But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. And before long at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity. ?And just like that,? she says, ?the lid to Pandora?s box flew open. It would take me another day before I understood how many imps had been freed, but for the moment, I was inordinately pleased with myself.?

In this multilayered tale, the surfaces seem clear, but the underpinnings are full of betrayals, misunderstandings, and outright murderous fraud. And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised.

W is for . . . wanderer . . . worthless . . . wronged . . .

W is for wasted.
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.
