Description

It is now nine weeks since Dr Dowan Purcell vanished without trace. The sixty-nine-year-old doctor had said goodnight to his colleagues at the Pacific Meadows nursing home, had climbed into his car and driven away -- never to be seen again. His embittered first wife Fiona is convinced he is still alive. His second wife, Crystal -- a former stripper forty years his junior -- is just as sure he is dead. Enter private investigator Kinsey Malone, hired by Fiona to find out just what has happened to the man they loved. Enter also Tommy Hevener, an attractive flame-haired twenty-something who has set his romantic sights on Kinsey. And Tommy is a man with a very interesting past ...'Grafton is a delight to read, her books being highly literatre, with believable plots and three-dimensionally drawn characters' Irish Times

Reviews

"Grafton has moved the private-eye story closer to real life than did either Hammett or Chandler." -"Los Angeles Times Book Review"

Author description

Sue Grafton has become one of the most popular female writers, both in the UK and in the US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before Kinsey Millhone and the 'alphabet' series took off. She plans to take Kinsey all the way through the alphabet to Z. Sue lives and writes in Montecito, California and Louisville, Kentucky.
