L is for Lawless (Kinsey Millhone #12)

L is for Lawless (Kinsey Millhone, #12)L is for Lawless by Sue Grafton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Oh Kinsey. You are a glutton for punishment. You let your love of dear sweet Henry Pitts drag you into a pro bono case with no upside at all for you. And you continue to allow your family issues to cloud your judgment.

This time around, Kinsey is pressed into service by Henry to help one of their neighbors, and both of them have no idea what she is actually walking into. Kinsey, impulsive to the last, ends up hopping a plane to Texas where she goes undercover (naturally) and stumbles into a series of life-threatening situations. And she gets home in time to play bridesmaid for Rosie and William.

It's fun to take a walk back to the 80s with Kinsey. This time, I found myself chuckling at the lack of airport security. She basically walks into the airport with no luggage, no tickets, and stalks someone right onto the plane without arousing any suspicion. That would never happen in this day and age. But the plane ticket was roughly what one would pay now, so the more things change, the more they stay the same. And I still maintain that Kinsey would be the world's best PI with today's technology. Give that girl a smart phone and she could solve any crime, any time. Another good installment in the alphabet series. Enjoy!
