BOTTOM-LINE:
The worst of the series so far.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
A mother attending a support group for grief-stricken parents in Kinsey's building hires her to look into the death of her daughter who died at home with no known cause of death.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
Cheney is involved as the original investigating officer, and it's fun to see a bit of a dance between them. There's lots of different characters running around, and lots of possible plots. It's definitely not a quick case for her.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
There is a giant plot hole in the case, namely a messed up timeline for a recording device, as well as a ton of interesting elements that go NOWHERE. Their purpose in the story is so obvious, they fall into the story very bluntly.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

One of my favorite in the alphabet series so far. This book had a darker tone, and Kinsey exhibits flaws of a serious nature, bringing an otherwise missing element to the nature of the series. I appreciate the more serious aspects and nature of this title.

Not my favorite Sue Grafton mystery. I did not care for the ending.
