Review: Q is for Quarry

Q is for QuarryBook Review

4 out of 5 stars to Q is for Quarry, the 17th book in the “Kinsey Millhone” mystery series, written in 2002 by Sue Grafton. An interesting fact about this books: it’s based on a real-life case and discovery. A body was discovered on the road side. Police couldn’t figure out who the woman was. No leads on the case. It sat dormant for nearly 20 years. Grafton hoped to shed some light on the case, as it happened in the 1960s. (Remember, her books take place in the 1980s). In Q is for Quarry, the cops who worked the case are older and unable to do any legwork, but they want to solve it before they die. They hire Kinsey to do the work. She needs money and it sounds intriguing. So she goes for it. In real-life, Grafton worked with artists on facial re-construction surgery and helped move the case forward. In the book, Kinsey always gets her (wo)man. Another fun ride along a murder case, readers are in for a treat when they see some of the ways Kinsey goes about solving this case, as well as her relationship with the cops. I enjoyed this one and would recommend it to series fans and as a new read for someone interested in this type of mystery.
