A tough-talking former cop, private investigator Kinsey Millhone has set up a modest detective agency in a quiet corner of Santa Teresa, California. A twice-divorced loner with few personal possessions and fewer personal attachments, she’s were given a soft spot for underdogs and lost causes.
Eight years ago, Nikki Fife was once convicted of killing her philandering husband. Now she’s out on parole and needs Kinsey’s assist to search out the actual killer.
If there is one thing that makes Kinsey feel alive, it is playing at the edge. When her investigation turns up a second corpse, more suspects, and a new reason why to kill, Kinsey discovers that the brink is closer―and sharper―than she imagined.SOAP Fault: (faultcode: aws:Client.RequestThrottled, faultstring: AWS Access Key ID: AKIAIRO3FYFFRH7BELUQ.
