Winter Reading Challenge: T is For Trespass

T is For Tresspass bySue Grafton

I have to say - I LOVE these Kinsey Milhone books!!!  I came across A at a garage sale a few years back, and started reading this series until I caught up with Sue Grafton.  Now I wait patiently for the next book to come out.  I cannot believe she is almost finished with the alphabet!

T is for Tresspass, just like the others in the series, was a page turner.  I stayed up way past my bedtime reading. 

Here is an the write up she has on her site, I don't want to say much more than this, and spoil it for anyone, but, you know how Kinsey is.

tres•pass \'tresp?s\ n: a transgression of law involving one’s obligations to God or to one’s neighbor; a violation of moral law; an offense; a sin
Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition, Unabridged

In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton’s T is for Trespass is also her 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, introducing readers to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs. The true horror of the novel builds with excruciating tension as the reader foresees the awfulness that lies ahead. The suspense lies in whether Millhone will realize what is happening in time to intervene.
Though set in the late eighties, T is for Trespass could not be more topical: identity theft; elder abuse; betrayal of trust; the breakdown in the institutions charged with caring for the weak and the dependent. It reveals a terrifying but all-too-real rip in the social fabric.

Once again, Grafton opens up new territory with startling results.
