X by Sue Grafton
X: The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss.
X: The shortest entry in Webster’s Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: think xylophone.
X: The twenty-fourth letter in the English alphabet.
Sue Grafton’s X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this sociopath. The test is whether Kinsey can prove her case against him before she becomes his next victim.
My Review: 5 out of 5 stars. I will be really sad when this series is over. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the main characters in this series. And I’ve loved that Grafton kept Kinsey in the past and didn’t fast forward too far in the future with all of the tools/gadgets that are available these days for Private Investigators (cough:internet:cough). 🙂 If you haven’t read any of Grafton’s books before (specifically in the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet Series), then you must. The books can stand alone by themselves, but who wants to start in the middle of a series when you can just start with A for Alibi. 🙂
