Book Description


See all titles by Sue Grafton.

Floral Beach wasn't much of a town: six streets long and three deep, its only notable feature a strip of sand fronting the Pacific. It was on that sandy beach seventeen years ago that the strangled body of Jean Timberlake had been found.

The people of floral Beach didn't pay a whole lot of mind to past history, especially when Bailey Fowler, the self-confessed killer, had been properly processed and convicted. They weren't even unduly concerned when, a year after the murder, Fowler walked away from the men's prison at San Luis Obispo, never to be seen again. After all, everyone knew Jean had been a wild kid. "Like mother, like daughter," some said--though never within hearing of Shana Timberlake, who, whatever her faults, still mourned her murdered child.

And then, by sheer fluke, the cops stumbled on Bailey Fowler. And a case seventeen years dead came murderously to life again.

For Royce Fowler, old and sick with not much time left, his son's reappearance was the chance to heal an old wound. For Kinsey Millhone, the case was a long shot, but she agreed to take it on. She couldn't know then it would lead her to probe the passions buried just below the surface of family relations, where old wounds fester and the most cherished emotions become warped until they fuse into deadly, soul-destroying time bombs.

5 of 5 F is for Fugitive / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
This is a Kinsey Millhone, Private Investigator mystery. Jean Timberlake was murdered 17 years ago and Bailey Fowler was found guilty and sent to prison. Only a year after entering prison Bailey
walks and hasn't surfaced in 17 years.
Royce Fowler is Bailey's father and near-death. He wants Kinsey to prove that Bailey didn't murder Jean, even though there was a confession. Who did muder Jean Timberlake?
