Publisher's Summary

A spiderweb of dangerous relationships is at the heart of this daring novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. 

Kinsey on Kinsey: "I know there are people who believe you should forgive and forget. For the record, I'd like to say I'm a big fan of forgiveness as long as I'm given the opportunity to get even first." 

A woman with a murky past who kills herself - or was it murder? A dying old man cared for by the son he pummeled mercilessly. A lovely woman whose life is about to splinter into a thousand fragments. A professional shoplifting ring racking up millions in stolen goods. A brutal and unscrupulous gangster. A wandering husband, rich and powerful. A spoiled kid awash in gambling debt thinking he can beat the system. A lonely widower mourning the death of his lover, desperate for answers that may be worse than the pain of his loss. An elegant but ruthless businessman whose dealings are definitely outside the law: the spider at the center of the web. 

And Kinsey Millhone, whose thirty-eighth-birthday gift is a punch in the face that leaves her with two black eyes and a busted nose. 

V: Victim. Violence. Vengeance.  

Please note: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Critic Reviews

"Sure to satisfy." (USA Today)

“The author has hit a high mark with her latest offering, a complex tale of love, betrayal, ambition, and, of course, murder…The only bad thing: There are just four letters left in the alphabet.” (The Associated Press)

“One of Kinsey Millhone’s best outings...must reading for Grafton fans.” (The Globe and Mail (Canada))

Sue Grafton has done it again!

If you could sum up V Is for Vengeance in three words, what would they be?

I just love what Kinsey gets into! Judy Kaye is a great reader - kind of like when you were a kid at story time.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kinsey, what she does and how she gets herself out of situations.

What about Judy Kaye’s performance did you like?

Judy Kaye makes you feel like you are right there.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It all does me!!

Any additional comments?

very enjoyable book

what I liked about this book was that it moved along at a pretty good pace. occasionally some books become far to descriptive and they tend to lag for pages on end. I have truly enjoyed most of Sue Grafton's books.

Excellent!

I own all of the alphabet mysteries and this was one of the best. Just Kaye does a fantastic job narrating this one and the story was well written and intriguing. definitely going to listen again one day.
