Private investigator Kinsey Millhone confronts her darkest and most disturbing case in this #1 New York Times bestseller from Sue Grafton.

In 1979, four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate—and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns state’s evidence and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace.
Now, it’s 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents—until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That’s when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he’s not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find...

  • Y is for yesterday

    By Toto Lee Lunes
    I read this after learning of Grafton’s death. Objectively, it was not, in my opinion, one of her best. But I was so sad about the end of the series that I devoured every word like it was a last meal. We will never have closure. We will never know any more about the cast of characters Grafton created.
  • Y why did you have to leave all of us

    By LeezerKlein
    You were great started with A. Thank you for years of great writing you will be missed. Hope someone will finish Z for you
  • Not my favorite, but a good read

    By Rouvibing
    I’ve read all of this series in order. Some of them are great, a couple are so-so, this one is alright, but not the best. The main story is good, but the backstory is a bit repetitive. Still worth reading if you are a fan, just not among my favorites from Sue Grafton.
  • Best Yet

    By Alailima
    I would rate this as her best yet. Like a master magician, she constantly shifts the focus from one suspect to another, until the reader is hopelessly entangled in a kaleidoscope of theories. One thing she does which she has never done before: she neatly concludes every tale she started. That leaves the reader satisfied, but horrified that this might be her last...
  • The series ended many books ago

    By Boopany
    This is sad. I was really looking forward to this book. I literally skipped hundreds of pages and it still made sense. I ended up not finishing. She can’t possibly wrap up Kinsey in Z and didn’t try here to begin. Kinsey’s life’s questions will have to remain unanswered because this was the last book for me. I will read them over up until about the mid alphabet when they were still something. So sad.

    I was disappointed. Had a hard time keeping up with the characters and jumping back and forth in time. Found myself speed-reading to get done. Not her usual quality.
  • Outstanding

    By Vermontbeth
    Love this series. Sad we are getting close to the end of the alphabet. Highly recommend.
  • Y is for Yesterday

    By Momchar/oma
    Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone never fails to engage readers as she meanders through Santa Teresa to solve her mysteries. The only negative about Y is that it is right before Z...and that is a sad thing for fans.
  • Ghost Writer?

    By melodyve
    "A-X" I've loved Sue Grafton novels. Then their was "Y". Boring, repetitive, mean spirited even. Opinion: There is no way Sue Grafton wrote this book. I always smile as our hero weaves her way through daily life. "Y"? No humor. Skip this one .& find another heroine!
  • NOT her best

    By Tom*sTilly
    Confusion abounds; names and descriptions of characters blend together - you'll need a scorecard to keep up with this twisty plot. This is the only one of Nevada Barr's books i really can't recommend but I'm sure her loyal fans (me included) will just have to read it.
