‘V is For Vengeance,’ the latest installment in mystery writer Sue Grafton’s alphabet series, comes out in paperback this month.
Like all the books in the series, it features detective Kinsey Millhone. While investigating a shoplifting ring, Millhone uncovers numerous family secrets including murder.
Kinsey shares many traits with her creator, as Sue Grafton told Here & Now’s Robin Young last November.
“She is my alter-ego. Younger, thinner, and braver of course, but I get to live a whole separate life through her,” Grafton said.
Jeremy Hobson joins Robin Young as co-host of Here & Now in its new 2-hour format, from WBUR and NPR.
