When Dowan Purcell, a respected physician who operates a nursing home, disappears, his ex-wife hires PI Kinsey Millhone to look into it. Though Fiona Purcell is still seething over Dow's marriage to Crystal, a former stripper, the two have remained friends. While discovering that Dow is being investigated for Medicare fraud, Kinsey finds a new office to rent and becomes romantically involved with one of her landlords. Unfortunately, Mr. Right and his brother probably murdered their parents ten years ago, pinning the crime on someone who is now conveniently dead. Her effort to escape the relationship is overpowered by the urging of an insurance company investigating the missing family jewels. As always, Grafton mixes an intriguing plot with well-developed characters into an entertaining story.

Another Sue Grafton alphabet mystery featuring heroine P.I. Kinsey Millhone. The ex-wife of a prominent physician retains Kinsey to find out what has happened to her mussing, onetime mate. Medicare fraud, hidden agendas galore, intriguingly flawed characters and more than a whiff of violence make this mystery a fast-paced summer read. Grafton fans will see this, the 16th in the series, as proof positive that she is getting stronger as a writer and that "P" stand for her most Perfect Production Yet. (17 Sep 2001)
