O is for Outlaw Hardcover - 1999

by Sue Grafton

Delving more deeply into P.I. Kinsey Millhone's past than any of Grafton's previous 14 novels, ""O" Is for Outlaw" finds Kinsey dealing with a man who has purchased the contents of a defaulted storage unit--for 30 bucks, he'll sell her the lot. A letter she finds amid childhood memorabilia forces her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of her first marriage--and about an old unsolved murder.

From the jacket flap

The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. The weekend before, he'd bought a stack of cardboard boxes. In one, there was a collection of childhood memorabilia with Kinsey's name all over it. For thirty bucks, he was offering Kinsey the lot.

Though she's never been one for personal possessions, curiosity is a powerful force. She agrees to meet the guy, then hands over a twenty (she may be curious, but she's also cheap and she loves a bargain).

What she finds among the items is an old undelivered letter to her that will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of her first marriage . . . about the honor of her first husband...and about an old unsolved murder.

It will put her life in the gravest peril. "O" Is for Outlaw: Kinsey's fifteenth excursion into the dark side of human nature.

Through fourteen books, readers have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past: a morsel here, a dollop there. We know about the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one has remained a blip on the screen. Until now. "O" Is for Outlaw: a revealing excursion into Kinsey's past.
