T Is For Trespass book. Then we would talk about how much better every other POV than Kinsey's is, and how I liked the psychopath's POV more than Kinsey, and we would laugh and laugh. Then, we'd probably be drunk enough to sing "Bohemian Rhapsody" during Karaoke and we would totally kill it.

Books in her alphabet series, begun in 1982, are international bestsellers with readership in the millions. And like Raymond Chandler, Ross Macdonald, Robert Parker, and John D. MacDonald-the best of her breed-Sue Grafton has earned new respect for the mystery form. Her readers appreciate her buoyant style, her eye for detail, her deft hand with character, her acute social observances, and her abundant storytelling talents.

The daughter of detective novelist C. W. Grafton, she said the strongest influence on her crime novels was author Ross Macdonald. Before her success with this series, she wrote screenplays for television movies.

Sue Grafton's series improves with each book, but I felt that this one missed the mark. Not sure why. Maybe I've just gone a different direction in my reading for awhile. I'll certainly be back. оставлен wickedwitch229. T is for The Best So Far!

My only issue with Sue Grafton's books is her interminable descriptions. T is for Trespass is a different kind of mystery. We actually know throughout the story who the bad guy is and what they're doing.

My only issue with Sue Grafton's books is her interminable descriptions. If she reduced the descriptions by half, and provide good content in place of, I would enjoy them much more. She as a rule doesn't have any sexual content, but a good deal of wondering by her protagonist. The question is how Kinsey Millhone will stop the bad stuff going on.

A #1 New York Times Bestseller -- Once again, Grafton opens up new territory with startling results. Possibly her most unsettling novel to date, T Is for Trespass is also Sue Grafton's most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, a chilling sociopath who has gained access to private caregiving jobs through a stolen identity.

I have just re-read this book while waiting for "Y". I thought it was good in that so many topics were covered. Identity theft, elder abuse and insurance fraud. It is easier to assume someone's identity than I imagined. The woman who does it is very clever. The treatment of an elderly man with no close relatives is scary and probably more common than we know. I like how it is neatly tied up at the end as these books usually are.

It might be that I read this book after reading 3 - 4 Jane Whitefield books by Thomas Perry. I like Grafton's writing style better - she has a more natural narrative voice and a better sense of humor but Perry has her all beat to hell when it comes to thrills and chills.
I thought "T is for Trespass" was slow to get off the ground. My iPad keeps track of these things for me so I noticed that I was 25% - 30% into the book and it felt like the stage was still being set. At some point I got hooked though, and by the end I was ready to download another book in the series. Of course you always know that the heroine is going to win in the end so it takes a lot of skill to convince the reader that she is in real jeopardy. I think Grafton pulled it off. My one complaint, and this goes for lots of writers, is that it annoys me when the heroine gets all angsty about killing someone in self defense. Grafton did a good job of showing that a person isn't necessary sorry about doing what had to be done, but that even "righteous" violent behavior has a profound impact on a person's psyche.

Kinsey had her hands full this time. She was working more than two cases at the same time when another dropped on lap. She was responsible for serving court orders she took statements and located witness. A elderly neighbor had fallen when she and her landlord assisted him by calling the ambulance. Later they straightened his unkempt place so when he was released from the hospital he could come home to a reasonably clean house. She contacted his only living relative, she arrives earlier than stated she was stuck with a house guest overnight. Later asked to do very basic background check on the hired private nurse by the relative. She was so busy with the other cases she didn't do a full check. This story had so many different twists and turns. I loved this book you know immediately who the criminals were normally Kinsey would have ferreted them. The characters in this story were in cases extremely cunning and ruthless. I enjoyed this book all the way until the very end.

She as a rule doesn't have any sexual content, but a good deal of wondering by her protagonist. Its generally in passing, and does add to the story.

This was one of my favorite books of this series. It was quite different in that we not only have Kinsey narrating the story, we also have Solana Rojas narrating. Going back and forth between the two of them is what creates suspense for the reader. Would Solana catch Kinsey breaking into her house? Would Solana kill Kinsey's neighbor? Would Kinsey figure out in time to prevent more deaths?

I am reading and rereading all the books in the series as I put them on my Kindle, so it's pretty clear that I like Grafton as an author. But this book has a tension in it that is far more elevated than in many of her novels. It's far more than a 'whodunnit', as the villain surfaces early. Grafton mixes the mundane of Kinsey's assignments and life (familiar to her readers) with the escalating plot. If a movie were to be made - I think that I would choose this specific book. The last of the book, when the gloves are off between the characters, will keep you up to finish it.

I've been a fan of Sue Grafton since A is for Alibi, but I hadn't read any of her books LATELY until this past week, when I gulped down two (see my review of S is for Silence). Ordinarily, I like to spread out mystery reads, but sometimes you gotta just live dangerously.

T is for Trespass is a different kind of mystery. We actually know throughout the story who the bad guy is and what they're doing. The question is how Kinsey Millhone will stop the bad stuff going on. In fact, there's more than one bad guy and more than one kind of trespass.

Sue Grafteon has always had a lot of minutiae in her books; it's not only a facet of her writing, it's how Kinsey's mind works, but sometimes it can begin to feel like a lot of filler. It sometimes did, here.

However, the issues in the story - about neglect & abuse of the elderly, child molestation, and identity theft - are current, real, and pretty frightening, so I was very intrigued with the story line and the themes throughout. I'm not all that much into mysteries, but I enjoy them more when real values issues are part of the mix. The only downside - and this is true of several of the books in the series - is that Ms. Grafton doesn't really allow Kinsey to grow much. I don't want her to change drastically, but I haven't seen her grow or change in a while. Even with the slow dating of the series, I find myself wishing she'd change somewhat as a result of the cases she goes through.
