It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the niceties of her parole. Maybe a week's work. Nothing untoward the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good.
But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than twenty-four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling round.
R is for Ricochet. And R is for romance: love gone right, love gone wrong, and matters somewhere in between.
"Grafton’s alphabet thrillers just keep getting better." USA Today
"Should a contest be held to name the most credible private eye in mystery fiction, Kinsey Millhone would certainly rank at or near the top. The central figure in Sue Grafton’s long-running series conveys a verisimilitude, in both her professional and private lives, that makes most of her competitors seem like cartoons." The San Diego Union-Tribune
"Grafton, as usual, creates believable and enduring characters and a strong sense of place in her town of Santa Teresa circa 1987." Publishers Weekly
"Sue Grafton is brillant. We'd follow Kinsey Millhone anywhere." Newsday
"A tale of love gone right and wrong and every which way in between. R is for Ricochet will have fans purring contentedly." Kirkus Review
