Overview

The first victim was a local PI of suspect reputation who’d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. The other body was found on the beach six weeks later—a homeless man with Kinsey Millhone’s name and number written on a slip of paper in his pants pocket.

Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.

But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some very strange linkages begin to emerge. Not just between the two victims, but also to Kinsey’s past. And before long Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised…

Praise

“A realistic female detective, a woman of her times, independent and self-reliant and smart…W is for Wasted finds Kinsey in perfect form.”—The Star-Ledger (Newark, NJ)
 
“The story is new, but the familiar Kinsey Millhone is in charge, not afraid to ask questions, take thrilling small risks or challenge the secretary guarding the office tower. She’s funny and quick-thinking, street-smart and kind to stray kittens…a fast-moving, readable novel that bears the mark of a master storyteller.”—Deseret  Morning News  (Salt Lake City, UT)

“Perhaps America’s premier writer of crime fiction…Grafton, as always, combines a gripping story line with further development of one of the most intriguing protagonists in the genre [in] prose that often startles with grace and rich detail.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
