Overview

Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Nord Lafferty was already in his fifties when Reba was born, and he could deny her nothing. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn’t there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institution for Women. Now, at thirty-two, she is about to be paroled, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers.” “It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the rules of her parole. Maybe all of 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.

Praise

“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
