We're up to "Q" in Sue Grafton's alphabet mystery series, and the bestselling author continues to build momentum as Kinsey Millhone gets caught up in a case already two decades old.
The core tale, based on fact, is as unsettling as it is gripping: Eighteen years ago, the unidentified body of a young girl was discovered decomposing in Grayson Quarry of Santa Teresa, California. Detective Stacey Oliphant and Lt. Con Dolan, two driven cops who've hung with the case for most of their careers, have never been able to learn who the woman was or catch her killer. Battling age and health issues, they ask Kinsey to take a crack at solving the "Jane Doe" mystery. Although all leads are long-cold by now, Kinsey follows every one of them up, interviewing witnesses whose memories of events have either dwindled or become wholly fictitious with time. One of her only clues is the woman's prominent teeth, which she hopes will spark someone's recollection. At the center of the puzzle lies not only a killer but also a link to Kinsey's own troubled past.
Q Is for Quarry eases you into its plot with Grafton's smooth writing style and swift plotting. Grafton knows her characters and their situations and explores them thoroughly -- it's those relationships that become the cornerstone of the novel as the mystery grows more intriguing and the investigation progresses. This is an author who understands how to let police procedure form the gist of the story while never allowing it to overshadow the humanity of her cast. The result is another impossible-to-put-down Grafton mystery. Tom Piccirilli

Read information about the authorSue Grafton was a #1 New York Times bestselling author. She is best known for her “alphabet series” featuring private investigator Kinsey Millhone in the fictional city of Santa Teresa, California. Prior to success with this series, she wrote screenplays for television movies. Her earlier novels include Keziah Dane (1967) and The Lolly-Madonna War (1969), both out of print. In the book Kinsey and Me she gave us stories that revealed Kinsey's origins and Sue's past.
Grafton never wanted her novels to be turned into movies or TV shows. According to her family she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name. Because of these things, and out of respect for Sue’s wishes, the family announced the alphabet now ends at “Y.”
Grafton was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, three Shamus Awards, and many other honors and awards.
Grafton had three children from previous marriages and several grandchildren, including a granddaughter named Kinsey. She and her husband lived in Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky.
