A Kinsey Millhone mystery. A wealthy woman needs to find her sister to settle a will. It looks routine, boring. Still, business is slow and even a private investigator has bills to pay, so Kinsey Millhone takes the case. But this is not routine and the deeper Kinsey digs the trickier things get. The client tries to call Kinsey off, an accusing husband surfaces and a double murder turns the case sinister. Kinsey feels adrift in a fog of distortion, where nothing - except danger - is quite what it seems. "B" is for burgler is the second in the series which began with "A" is for alibi.… (més)

This book is still early in the series, but I am enjoying it. "B" is for Burglar is certainly a product of the 1980s. Kinsey Millhone jogs, eats out at prices that I vaguely remember, and has no cell phone. She is her own woman, though, and I love it.

This is a standard mystery, with the author playing fair with the reader. I had thoughts about what was going on, but then I have a suspicious mind when reading mysteries. I thoroughly enjoyed the "reveal" when Kinsey figured it out.

Most of all, reading this during the Covid-19 pandemic, I envied the freedom to travel and interact with people. In this much simpler time, before 9/11, it was easy to hop on a plane and fly across the country. People had no masks, no real worries about various diseases. Of course, having no cell phones or portable computers certainly made it more necessary to travel and have "boots on the ground."

This book will stand alone but gains from being read in series order. Highly recommended for fans of PI mysteries. ( )

The second book in Grafton's series takes place about two weeks after A is for Alibi concluded and though Kinsey is still reeling from the psychological affects sustained while solving that case
she is now called upon to find Elaine Boldt the missing sister of Beverly Danzinger. Beverly has been unable to reach Ms. Boldt and suspects she may be staying in one of her two homes in California or Florida or......perhaps she's dead. Around the same time, a fire next door to Boldt's condo has claimed the life of Boldt's friend, Marty Grice. Could these two incidents be related?
A characteristically shifty group of neighbors and relatives make this another intriguing and entertaining read.
More 1980's jargon include "hose" worn by women, smokers and smoking in public buildings, carbon paper and microfiche, "white out", pay phones and a cheeseburger, fries and a coke all for $1.65. ( )

These books aren't capital-L Literature, but they're fun enough to read. Grafton makes neat little descriptive observations that jump out at me pleasantly (though they're apparently not memorable, as I can call none to mind). I don't love how she builds the story and builds the story only to give you kind of a little half-ending. ( )

I like Kinsey, mainly because she lives unapologetically on her own terms. This mystery slowly reveals itself, and you really feel like you are living it in the same timeframe that Kinsey is. ( )

There's nothing like listening to old favourite books when one is sick. :) ( )
