Review: C is for Corpse by Sue Grafton



How do you go about solving an attempted murder when the victim has lost a good part of his memory? It’s one of Kinsey’s toughest cases yet, but she never backs down from a challenge. Twenty-three-year-old Bobby Callahan is lucky to be alive after a car forced his Porsche over a bridge and into a canyon. The crash left Bobby with a clouded memory. But he can’t shake the feeling it was no random accident and that he’s still in danger…

The only clues Kinsey has to go on are a little red address book and the name “Blackman.” Bobby can’t remember who he gave the address book to for safekeeping. And any chances of Bobby regaining his memory are dashed when he’s killed in another automobile accident just three days after he hires Kinsey. 

As Kinsey digs deeper into her investigation, she discovers Bobby had a secret worth killing for–and unearthing that secret could send Kinsey to her own early death…


So, I’m still learning how WordPress works and I haven’t had much time to learn so I will probably make this review short and sweet.  I’ve always enjoyed reading mysteries and have only recently started reading the Kinsey mysteries by Sue Grafton.  They were recommended to me by my father and so far there hasn’t been any disappointment.

I like how I never seem to know “who done it” and once the action picks up I can’t wait to find out who was behind the caper.  I do have to say of the three of the mysteries that I have read,the beginnings always seem to be a bit slow and repetitive.  I’m guessing that is so you could read them as standalone novels if you choose to do so.

Overall, I liked the novel and plan to continue the series.

3 out of 5 stars
