Q is for Quarry by Sue Grafton

Q is for QuarryReading a book that was published over a decade ago, but that takes place nearly 3 decades ago, can really stretch one’s patience. Pay phones? Records searches? I can’t imagine what Kinsey Millhone would do in the world of cell phones and the Internet. But the author has said she wants to move through time in a linear fashion, so will never catch up with real time, and I respect that. So, pretend that you’re just reading a cold case murder mystery and appreciate how painful information gathering was pre-Internet. All of the alphabet books make for good reading; just be aware that technology will be frozen in the dim past (but motives and evil remain current…)
