About the Author

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton (1940-2017) entered the mystery field in 1982 with the publication of 'A' Is for Alibi, which introduced female hard-boiled private investigator, Kinsey Millhone, operating out of the fictional town of Santa Teresa, (aka Santa Barbara) California, and launched the bestselling Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries. In addition to her books, she'd published several Kinsey Millhone short stories, and with her husband, Steven Humphrey, wrote numerous movies for television, including "A Killer in the Family" (starring Robert Mitchum), "Love on the Run" (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist) and two Agatha Christie adaptations, "Sparkling Cyanide" and "Caribbean Mystery," which starred Helen Hayes. Grafton is published in 28 countries and in 26 languages.


"Some of the scenes Ms. Grafton most enjoys writing are about the imperfections of her heroine. 'I work to keep her flawed and inconsistent, ' she says. The flaws are, for many readers, a major part of Kinsey's charm. After all, who can resist a character who sometimes lies 'just to keep up my skills'?" --Enid Nemy, The New York Times

"Grafton exhibits a sharp ear for dialogue and a quarter-horse pace. Her characters are as real as any this side of Elmore Leonard. "K" Is for Killer offers further proof of Grafton's growth as a writer. This is one mystery series that gains strength with passing letter." --Lorenzo Carcaterra, People on "K" Is for Killer

"Unlike many detective series, Grafton's seems only to get better each time out." --Gene Lyons, Entertainment Weekly
