3 of 5 stars to F is for Fugitive, the 6th book in the “Kinsey Millhone” mystery series written in 1988 by Sue Grafton. In between a cozy mystery and a traditional mystery, this series toes the line with its strong and serious private investigator, Kinsey, based in California during the 1980s. In this one, she takes on a case close to 20 years old, trying to collect as many details as she can from the family who has hired her. But they won’t tell her everything… and it’s about their son who murdered his girlfriend, but really says “I didn’t do it.” Of course he didn’t, and that’s why Kinsey agreed to search for the truth. But when she falls prey to some lies, she has to decide how much money is worth her own frustration. A good book in the series, not one of the best ones, but certainly not one of the less fun ones. Has some shock factor. Takes Kinsey out of her normal Santa Teresa homestead. The family she deal with are a bunch of loons, which of course makes for a few very funny pages.
