      I really enjoyed this story The characters were darker and complicated than her earlier ones There was a nice twist at the end I hope Ms Grafton has plans to continue the series after Z.

      I had been sad that this series is ending, but after reading this book I feel like it s time for it to go I ve read all the others and was looking forward to the latest installment I did not, however, enjoy this book It was dreary and repetitious The flashback chapters added nothing and I was particularly unhappy that Sue Grafton chose to repeat over and over the graphic content of a tape of sexual abuse Every time a new person views the tape it gets described, in addition to detailing the actua [...]
