Once Mickey Magruder was a cop with a wild streak. And Kinsey Millhone was a younger cop who adored and married him. Then Mickey was implicated in a fatal beating, and Kinsey walked out. Now, fourteen years later, she comes face-to-face with those tragic years and Mickey's harrowing downward spiral after he lost the job he loved--and the marriage he loved a little less.
Mickey lies dying in an L.A. hospital. Trying to find out how Mickey got there, Kinsey uncovers evidence that he was innocent of the beating charge. But as she searches through the lives that swirled around Mickey's--lives gone wrong and lives gone well--Kinsey must also search the blind spots of her own life, including one that hides a killer.
Sue Grafton is the New York Times bestselling author of the Kinsey Millhone mysteries. She has won the Anthony and Shamus awards and lives in Santa Barbara, California.
"EVERYTHING THAT HAS ALWAYS WORKED FOR THIS FIRST-CLASS SERIES WORKS BETTER HERE. . . . O Is for Outlaw comes across with a freshness that suggests [Sue Grafton] has been taking stock of her skills, sharpening them up for the long haul."
--The New York Times Book Review
"EXTREMELY GOOD--OUTSTANDING, IN FACT. . . . As always Millhone is an engaging detective--a bit lighthearted, a bit sarcastic, always resourceful, and frequently funny."
--San Francisco Chronicle
