‘My name is Kinsey Millhone. I’m a licensed private investigator…thirty two, twice divorced. I like being alone and I suspect that my independence suits me better than it should…’
Kinsey met Bobby Callahan in the gym on Monday morning.
His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon 400 feet below, his Porsche a ruin, his best friend dead, and his memory severely impaired. He was convinced someone was trying to kill him.
By Thursday, he was dead.
But Kinsey wasn’t going back on a deal. She had been hired to prevent a murder. Now she was looking for the murderer…
Grafton never wanted her novels to be turned into movies or TV shows. According to her family she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name. Because of these things, and out of respect for Sue’s wishes, the family announced the alphabet now ends at “Y.” (Sue Grafton died on December 28, 2017)
Grafton was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, three Shamus Awards, and many other honors and awards.
Grafton had three children from previous marriages and several grandchildren, including a granddaughter named Kinsey. She and her husband lived in Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky.
