Sue Grafton has become one of the most popular female writers, both in the UK and in the US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before Kinsey Millhone and the 'alphabet' series took off. She plans to take Kinsey all the way through the alphabet to Z. Sue lives and writes in Montecito, California and Louisville, Kentucky.
Sue Grafton's Alphabet series of novels, featuring clever, feisty and funny Californian private eye Kinsey Millhone, in order from A to X.
Sue Grafton, author of the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet series, tells us her all-time favourite fictional detectives.
"In many ways, hospitals, like court rooms, are the venue of those teetering on the edge."

With Y IS FOR YESTERDAY on the near horizon, I’ve been wondering what you do in preparation for reading the new book. Do you go back and read the earlier books to refresh your memories or do you plunge into the latest with carefree abandon? There’s obviously no right answer here. Just curious about your process. Fill me in if you would. For my part, I often go back and read the earlier books, which helps not only in terms of details, but with regard to tone and mood. I usually read in random order unless I’ve left a thread hanging from one book to the next. The character of Ned Lowe, for instance, is introduced in W IS FOR WASTED and pursued in X. I needed to remember what I’d laid in so I wouldn’t be contradicting or repeating myself. Might have done that anyway inadvertently, but you know what I mean.
This giveaway will certainly provide the complete panorama, for one lucky winner. Enter below with Criminal Element, now through 6/30.
Limited time offer! The ebook of X is available for $1.99. Snatch a copy for your e-reader before it's too late!
