Description

"An inventive plot and incisive character studies elevate MWA Grand Master Grafton's twenty-fourth Kinsey Millhone novel....This superior outing will remind readers why this much-loved series will be missed as the end of the alphabet approaches."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

X: The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss... Perhaps Sue Grafton's darkest and most chilling novel, X 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 deadly sociopath. The test is whether private investigator Kinsey Millhone can prove her case against him--before she becomes his next victim.

Review quote

Praise for Sue Grafton "Lesser authors churn out books. Grafton continues to knock them out of the park." --Scott Coffman, Louisville Courier-Journal "Just beneath the extroverted mask she presents at bookstore appearances is the deeply contemplative writer still determined to stretch her chops and chart territory that removes any semblance of a comfort zone." --Sarah Weinman, Los Angeles Times

About Sue Grafton

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton first introduced Kinsey Millhone in the Alphabet Series in 1982. Soon after, both writer and heroine became icons and international bestsellers. Ms. Grafton was a writer who consistently broke the bonds of genre while never writing the same book twice. Named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, her awards and honors included the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award from Britain's Crime Writers' Association, the Lifetime Achievement Award from Malice Domestic, a Lifetime Achievement Award from Bouchercon, three Shamus Awards, and three Anthony Awards--including the first two ever awarded. She passed away in December 2017.
