No one writes a thriller like #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton. In E is for Evidence, PI Kinsey Millhone becomes the victim of a nasty frame-up…

E IS FOR EX

Being a twice-divorced, happily independent loner has worked like a charm for P.I. Kinsey Millhone—until holiday weekends like this one roll around. What she needs is a little diversion to ward off the blues. She gets her much-needed distraction with a case that places her career on the line. And if that isn't enough to keep her busy, her ex-husband, who walked out on her eight years ago, pops back on the radar...

E IS FOR ENEMY
It all begins with a $5,000 deposit made into Kinsey's bank account. Problem is she's not the one who deposited the money. But when she's accused of being on the take in an industrial arson case, Kinsey realizes someone is framing her…

E IS FOR EVIDENCE
Now Kinsey's working for herself. But with new evidence—and corpses—surfacing around her, she's going to have to act quickly to clear her name before she loses her career, her reputation—and quite possibly her life…

Reviews

Praise for "E" is for Evidence

“Exceptionally entertaining...an offbeat sense of humor and a feisty sense of justice.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Millhone is an engaging detective-for-hire...P.I. Kinsey Millhone and her creator...are arguably the best of [the] distaff invaders of the hitherto sacrosanct turf of gumshoes.” —The Buffalo News

“Once a fan reads one of Grafton's alphabetically titled detective novels, he or she will not rest until all the others are found.” —Los Angeles Herald Examiner

“Millhone is a refreshingly strong and resourceful female private eye.” —Library Journal

“Tough but compassionate...There is no one better than Kinsey Millhone.” —Best Sellers

“A woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner.” —Newsweek

“Lord, how I like this Kinsey Millhone...The best detective fiction I have read in years.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Smart, tough, and thorough...Kinsey Millhone is a pleasure.” —The Bloomsbury Review

“Kinsey is one of the most persuasive of the new female operatives...She's refreshingly free of gender clichés. Grafton, who is a very witty writer, has also given her sleuth a nice sense of humor--and a set of Wonder Woman sheets to prove it.” —Boston Herald

“What grandpa used to call a class act.” —Stanley Ellin

“Smart, sexual, likable and a very modern operator.” —Dorothy Salisbury Davis

“Kinsey's got brains and a sense of humor.” —Kirkus Reviews

About the author

Sue Grafton

Sue Grafton entered the mystery field in 1982 with the publication of 'A' Is for Alibi, which introduced female hard-boiled private investigator, Kinsey Millhone, operating out of the fictional town of Santa Teresa, (aka Santa Barbara) California. 'B' is for Burglar followed in 1985 and the series, now referred to as 'the alphabet' mysteries, is still going strong. In addition to her books, she’s published several Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, has written numerous movies for television, including “A Killer in the Family” (starring Robert Mitchum), “Love on the Run” (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist) and two Agatha Christie adaptations, “Sparkling Cyanide” and “Caribbean Mystery,” which starred Helen Hayes. Grafton is published in 28 countries and 26 languages. She loves cats, gardens, and good cuisine. Sue has a home in Montecito, California, and another in Louisville, the city in which she was born and raised.
