From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Tony award–winner Judy Kaye has been the voice of private eye Kinsey Millhone since the beginning, and 19 titles later, she's still an inspired choice, capturing the character's unique combination of femininity and ruggedness, intelligence, street savvy and self-confidence with just a hint of uncertainty. Trespass is possibly a series best. Both reader and sleuth are working at full tilt as Kinsey interacts with a large cast. Her foremost opponent is the devious and homicidal black widow who has spun a web around the detective's aged and infirmed next door neighbor. Grafton deviates from Kinsey's narration to delve into the killer's history and mind-set, underlining the seriousness of her threat. Kaye offers a crisp, chillingly cold aural portrait of a sociopath capable of anything. Kaye's spot-on interpretation of the two very different leading characters would be praiseworthy enough, but she's just as effective in capturing the elderly men and women, the screechy landladies, the drawling rednecks, the velvet-tongued smooth operators, the fast talking lawyers and all the inhabitants of Kinsey's world.

Audiofile

Judy Kaye simply is Kinsey Millhone. When Kinsey is on her daily run, Judy is short of breath. When Kinsey is being strangled by a 300-pound sociopath, Judy can barely force air through her throat. Kaye, who has narrated all of GraftonÕs Alphabet series, has the task nicely down pat. In addition to Kinsey, she creates many believable female characters, and her men are distinct (if a bit light-voiced). In this, the twentieth novel in the series, Kinsey is living in 1988. Yet the topics are thoroughly up-to-date: identity theft and abuse of the elderly. Fans of the series will be comforted to find that not much has changed in Santa Teresa.

Gentil polar mais longuet (nombreux détours totalement inutiles pour l'intrigue principale)
Quand on apprécie le suspense haletant à la Harlan Coben ou Michael Connelly, on s'endort très vite !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "T" Is For Terrific 4 décembre 2007
Par Tom S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The 20th novel in Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series is one of the best. In her last outing, "S" IS FOR SILENCE, Grafton altered her style a bit, actually entering other characters' points of view to tell parts of the story so that they shared the narrating duties with Kinsey herself. With this new novel, that device is used to chilling effect--between reports from Kinsey, we enter the mind of a woman who is possibly her most twisted adversary to date.

Solana Rojas is a caregiver, a home-help nurse's aide much like the thousands you'll find all over America. But the woman assigned to care for Kinsey's elderly friend is not your usual "angel of mercy." For one thing, she is not the real Solana Rojas--she has stolen that woman's identity. And she has plans. To tell you more of the plot would be--well, criminal.

The best aspect of Grafton's excellent series is her ability to keep up with current social and legal problems, despite the fact that Kinsey's stories are set somewhere in the 1980s. In this novel we have identity theft, the inherent problems of home care, and--perhaps most disturbing--the tendency of society in general to ignore and/or mistreat our most vulnerable citizens. At least this elderly victim has Kinsey Millhone as a champion. And what a champion she is! "T" IS FOR TRESPASS will captivate longtime Grafton fans, and it should make her a lot of new fans as well. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Continued excellence 14 décembre 2007
Par K. L. Cotugno - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The real genius in Sue Grafton's work is how she is able to continue to set her stories in the 80's and yet have them still be relevant to today. In an interview several years ago, she said she was lagging so that her heroine would not grow old before her time. Kinsey Milhone is her fantasy self, leading the life Grafton imagines she would if she were a PI in the 80's. Although it doesn't seem that long ago, it is 20 years after all. And the electronic gadgets that would make Kinsey's job easier are not available to her yet. This book is her best yet. Darker, and despite the 20 year lag, topical. She is able to juggle several story lines and keep them all fresh and interesting, satisfyingly complete.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wicked 16 juin 2008
Par Linda Pagliuco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
When Kinsey's crotchety octagenarian neighbor Gus takes a fall, the good hearted detective takes on the responsibility for seeing to his welfare. The nurse who is hired comes with glowing recommendations, but soon, a web of stolen identity, embezzlement, abuse, and murder swirls around her, and Kinsey's met her match. This plot is the best Grafton has produced in the last several years, with Kinsey juggling her personal life and her caseload, which, in addition to Gus's life threatening problems, include insurance fraud and a reclusive ex-con, best friend Henry's tangled romance, and a Mexican tarantula, just to name a few of stumbling blocks that pop up to trip her. Even when all seems resolved, trouble still lurks in the wings to disturb Kinsey's peace of mind. In addition to the engaging main characters, Grafton can be relied upon to produce a lively cast of courageous allies and menacing villains without resorting to types. T is for Trespass is more than a mystery, it's an adventure, a look into the dark recesses of some souls, and into the finer instincts of others.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid Millhone installment with a bit of a strange ending for me... 19 mars 2008
Par Thomas Duff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
It seems like it's been forever since I last read a Sue Grafton novel. I guess I'm getting spoiled with Nora Roberts' frequent In Death series. So once again I pick up the life of PI Kinsey Millhone in T is for Trespass. This is an interesting mix of Kinsey being Kinsey, as well as a look at identity theft and elder abuse.

One of Millhone's elderly neighbors falls in his home and eventually attracts the attention of her and Henry during a walk. After getting him to a hospital, she attempts to run down some living relative in order to get someone to take care of him during the rehab process. But the nearest relative is a niece on the east coast, and she really can't be bothered to help out much. Kinsey finally convinces her to fly out, take responsibility for the situation, and find someone. Kinsey does a quick background check on the nurse who applies, and all seems well for the first few days. But as time passes, the neighbor continues to deteriorate physically, and the nurse is cutting him off from all outside contact. Kinsey sees that the nurse is taking advantage of the situation to slowly collect everything of value that he owns. She tries to intervene, but the nurse is more than a match for Kinsey, and is able to spin the story such that Kinsey comes out the "bad guy". Once it's determined that the nurse may not be who she appears to be, it becomes a race to see if Kinsey and Henry can rescue the neighbor without ending up in jail (or before he's killed off).

That main plotline works pretty well, as you can see how someone in a caretaker role can take advantage of the very people they are hired to protect. The identity theft angle is also very plausible, and it doesn't even have to be a high-tech crime to be effective. The subplot involving an investigation of accident fraud was also interesting, but the ending angle on that was somewhat strange and unexpected. It didn't really sync with the rest of the story, in my opinion.

Overall, it's an enjoyable read, and Grafton fans will be happy that she's finally back with the next installment. If you're new to the series, you'll be missing some of the character background, but not nearly as bad as some of the episodes you could start with (if you don't feel up to going back to A is for Alibi).

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed Grafton fan 29 janvier 2008
Par Chronepsis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I have read all the ABC novels so far and think that they are some of the better mystery novels out there. I was looking forward to the latest installment and was very disappointed. It seems that some people think it is enough to write a novel about a "socially important" issue and that this one idea will carry a whole book. That is unfortunately not the case, but seems to become more popular with mystery novel writers. Just write a good mystery novel and leave the social critique to the sociologists!
The book is boring, going on and on about the unpleasant abuse of an elderly person. And, as terrible as it is, this doesn't make for a good mystery novel. I hope that she will get back to writing good mystery novels with her next book - or has she finally run out of ideas? Ihope not.
