Description

Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. Even more so when Kinsey Millhone's only lead is a grown man dredging up a repressed childhood memory-of something that may never have happened...

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 12, 2009 – False memory syndrome provides the core of bestseller Grafton's intriguing 21st crime novel featuring wry PI Kinsey Millhone (after T Is for Trespass). In 1988, Kinsey takes on client Michael Sutton, who claims to have recovered a childhood memory of men burying a suspicious bundle shortly after the unsolved disappearance of four-year-old Mary Claire Fitzhugh in 1972. But Sutton has a track record of unreliability, and Kinsey must untangle and reconfigure his disjointed recountings to learn if they are truth or fiction. Chapters told from the point of view of other characters in other time periods add texture, allowing the reader to assemble pieces of the case as Kinsey works on other aspects. A subplot involves Kinsey wrestling with conflicting information about her estranged family. Though whodunit purists may be a bit disappointed that the culprit is revealed well before book's end, both loyal Kinsey fans and those new to the canon will find much to like. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

U is for Undertow

Good plot and good character development. A nice light read for murder mystery fans.

Guess they can't all be extraordinary

This is the first time the reader gets 'whodunnit' before Kinsey. The story was transparent almost from the beginning. And as a result boring and a bit tedious to finish. Perhaps it was the new format undertaken by jumping back and forth in timeline that caused what could have been the usual "on the edge of your seat to the end" turn out disappointing. I am a fan though and one disappointing read won't keep me from grabbing the next one when it hits the shelf.

Another great read. I have read them all now. Can't wait for the next one... 'V'.
