Description

Of #1 New York Times–bestselling author Sue Grafton, NPR’s Maureen Corrigan said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.” With only two letters left, Grafton’s many devoted readers will share that sentiment.

X:  The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss.

X:  The shortest entry in Webster’s Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: think xylophone.

X:  The twenty-fourth letter in the English alphabet.

Sue Grafton’s X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this sociopath. The test is whether Kinsey can prove her case against him before she becomes his next victim.

    I've read every one of Sue Grafton's books. They are always entertaining; I can't wait for the two remaining books..."Y" and "Z"!
  • Wasn't ready for it to end.

    Kinsey is your neighbor next door that has found her professional niche, investigating. Over the years she has sought to improve her skills as well as utilize them to bring issues brought to her attention to a successful closure. In this book, there are three issues. One where she is hired to perform a simple task for her skill set that turns into something else. Second where a new neighbor is a cause for concern. And lastly, doing a favor for a friend on behalf of the friend's deceased husband uncovers something entirely different. Like life, not everything has a desirable outcome.
  • Not my favorite

    It took me about a month and a half to make it through this book, because it never SUCKED ME IN until the last three chapters. Perhaps there are people who enjoy mountains of unnecessary details, but I learned, throughout the reading of this novel, that I am not one of those people. It was a decent storyline, and I enjoyed the characters. But, I am not compelled to read any other novels by this author. It's just not my cup of tea, but I am guessing others might love this.
  • Xcellent as usual

    I drool when I know a Sue Grafton book will becoming out. I feel as if Kinsey is an acquaintance of mine and her story's are her and I acting away. I dread the end of the series. Thank you for the older full reads over the years. Sue always gives such humanity to the characters. Can't wait for the next one. Of course I will read this one over again because I so joyed it.
  • One of her best

    This is one of Sue Grafton's best so far. Full of twists.

    These books are going downhill. Much as I love the writer she should give up while ahead.
