Publication Date: September 15, 1995
Kinsey's skills are about to be sorely tested. She is about to meet her duplicitous match in a couple of world-class prevaricators who quite literally take her for the ride of her life.
""L" Is for Lawless" Call it Kinsey Millhone in bad company. Call it a mystery without a murder, a treasure hunt without a map, a quest novel with truly mixed-up motives. Call it the return of Kinsey as bad girl-- quick-witted and quicksilvery, smart-mouthed and smart-alecky-- poking her nose into everyone's dirty laundry as she joins up with a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde in an "Our Gang" comedy that will take her halfway across the country and leave her with a major headache and an empty bank balance.
America's favorite borderline delinquent is back with her one-liners on tap and her energy level on high, romping through her fastest and funniest adventure in this, her twelfth foray into the alphabet of crime.

About the Author
Praise For "L" Is for Lawless: A Kinsey Millhone Novel…
"Some of the scenes Ms. Grafton most enjoys writing are about the imperfections of her heroine. 'I work to keep her flawed and inconsistent,' she says. The flaws are, for many readers, a major part of Kinsey's charm. After all, who can resist a character who sometimes lies 'just to keep up my skills'?"--Enid Nemy, The New York Times
"Grafton exhibits a sharp ear for dialogue and a quarter-horse pace. Her characters are as real as any this side of Elmore Leonard. "K" Is for Killer offers further proof of Grafton's growth as a writer. This is one mystery series that gains strength with passing letter."--Lorenzo Carcaterra, People
"Unlike many detective series, Grafton's seems only to get better each time out."--Gene Lyons, Entertainment Weekly
