“I loved everything but the ending. The killer is implied but it still could have been another person. At the very least, that person knew what had happened. I felt just a bit "up in the air" when it ended. ”Fran wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Kinsey Millhone is hired by Fiona Purcell to find her ex-husband Dow Purcell. He's been missing for nine weeks. A retired doctor, he had starting working at a nursing home. Now remarried to young and beautiful Crystal with a son named Griffin it's hard to imagine he left on his own account. As Kinsey is working to find him, she finally meets a guy that she likes..... too bad he's hiding a huge secret. I liked this book. It was surprising. I would never have guessed the outcome. A perfect mystery. It made me laugh when Kinsey finally told Fiona that she was being rude and that she couldn't stand her attitude. :) I would recommend this book to teens who like mysteries.”Annalise wrote this review Saturday, September 28, 2013.

“Typical Kinsey mystery. At times she can be quite naive in this story.”Linda K wrote this review Friday, August 16, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This is another installment in the Kinsey Millhone series. The storyline was well thought out and the two main mysteries criss-crossed each other without getting in the way of each other. Sue Grafton did an excellent job with adding surprise elements at the end to keep you interested. The main mystery's solution was never solved in writing. You are given the opportunity to infer what happened. The teacher in me kinda liked that. ”jguidry wrote this review Wednesday, June 12, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Family dynamics takes on a big role in this case when Kinsey Milhone is hired to look into the disappearance of Dowan Purcell, a doctor specializing in geriatrics. What is strange is rather than being hired by his current wife Crystal, it is his ex-wife Fiona who calls her up. Kinsey finds herself being drawn into an awkward mix of interviews with many of Dow's relatives and co-workers at the nursing home he managed. The latter is even more bizarre as it becomes clear that the institution is being investigated for Medicare fraud.
Kinsey's personal life is also adding some interest to this volume. In the previous novel, Kinsey had learned that the lawyer from whom she had been renting some office space was going to be moving. She was not really sure that she wanted to follow him, and found herself looking for some a new space of her own. The place she finds herself most interested in is owned by a pair of brothers.
The apartment seems to come with an added benefit when she starts dating one of the brothers. The only problem is that after a while, she learns that their parents were murdered 10 years previously. Someone else was blamed for the murders, but he has turned up dead and all clues point back to her new beau and his brother. She has to get out of the relationship and her new office space. Can she do it before she becomes their next victim while also figuring out what happened to Dowan Purcell?
I thought this book seems to have captured the plot rhythm that has made this series so popular. The last few books before have struggled a bit with maintaining that. I am so glad that Kinsey is back to being as good as most of her earlier books.
I thought this was definitely a page turner.”
