Happy 33rd Birthday to Kinsey! Her apartment is ready, she gets hired to go check on someone’s mom, and she’s on a hit list.
WHAT I LIKED
As always, Grafton adds some local colour wherever Kinsey goes — Kinsey gets to a small trailer area, and the directions are to go on down to a corner where there’s a Rusted-Out Chevy and take the road next to it called, you guessed it, Rusted-Out Chevy Road. It is such a perfect example to set a mood for the place. More importantly though, Dietz is in the story, hired to protect her from the cheap hitman chasing her. And the book is rounded out by a cold case of a woman with signs of Alzheimer’s who is trying to hide a secret.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
Dietz is so hard-core professional with the security side, it feels almost like the Plum series where Ranger is awesome and Plum is a cupcake. It reduces Kinsey at times to passive acceptance and direction, and it doesn’t fit well with most of her character.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Decent book, worth celebrating her birthday.
