Book Description


See all titles by Sue Grafton.

Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, Abandoned by her rebellious mother when she was an infant, she was the only child of a rich man already in his mid-fifties when she was born, and her adoring father thoroughly spoiled her. Now, at thirty-two, having had many scrapes with the law, she is about to be released on probation from the California Institution for Women, having served twenty-two months of a four-year sentence for embezzlement. Though Nord Lafferty could deny his daughter nothing, he wasn't there for her when she was brought up on this charge. Now he wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from drugs, the booze, the gamblers. It seems a straightforward assignment for Kinsey: babysit Reba until she settles in, make sure she follows all the niceties of her parole. May a week's work. Nothing untoward - the woman seems remorseful and friendly. And the money is good. But life is never that simple, and Reba is out of prison less than twenty-four hours when one of her old crowd comes circling around.

5 of 5 R is for Ricochet / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
Kinsey Millhone, private investigator, agrees to take Nord Lafferty's case. He wants Kinsey to babysit his daughter, Reba who is about to be released from a California's Women's Prison. Reba was born when Nord was in his fifties and her Mom abandoned them when Reba was an infant. Though Reba had everything money could buy, she lacked her Father's attention and now he feels guilty and doesn't have long to live. Kinsey agrees to take this case as it should only take a week or so to get Reba back on track. However, her old boss shows up almost immediately and is friendly with Reba even though she was supposed to have embezzled $350,000 from him.  In fact, he promises Reba anything she wants except for a job.This novel is also about Romance. Both Kinsey and Henry have new romances and both have to think about how they feel about commitment.  This novel offers romance, action, and suspense.
A wonderful read.
