Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

California PI Kinsey Millhone, hired to investigate the disappearance of a client's eccentric, elderly mother, must also evade a vengeful criminal whom she helped put away four years earlier. "Grafton creates . . . a twist in the complex plot to tease Bronte fans, and a new, vulnerable side to the still-sardonic Kinsey," said PW. "The only complaint is that it ends abruptly." Author tour.

From School Library Journal

Feisty private investigator Kinsey Millhone continues to solve mysteries, in this case finding and taking an elderly woman to a nursing home near her daughter. But the lady mysteriously disappears within hours of her arrival. Painfully aware of the fact that a contract has been arranged for her own murder, Kinsey unravels the events of the past clue by clue, narrating the action-filled story in a realistic, easy-to-read, informal style. Less motivated students are sure to appreciate a character with a respectable, exciting job without having had a college education; although Kinsey had police training, her bodyguard freely admits he left high school but later took an equivalency test. This light mystery maintains interest to the end; everything happens quickly. --Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

Les idées de la série sont variées et l'héroïne a une nette tendance à parler de manière inconsidérée pour se mettre en situation périlleuse et résoudre ses affaires accidentellement. C'est sympa à lire, sans prétention et bon pour la détente. Et je veux un garde du corps comme le sien...

HASH(0x9066ee34) étoiles sur 5 G is for Gumshoe is a fine addition to the alphabet series of mysteries featuring Kinsey Millhone by Sue Grafton 10 mars 2011
Par C. M Mills - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
G is for Gumshoe is another in the series of Kinsey Millhone Private Investigator mysteries by Sue Grafton prolific New York Times bestselling author. The novel is narrated by Kinsey Millhone. Kinsey is in her early 30s, twice divorced and is a private investigator in the a small California city.
The Plot: Frail Irene Gersh employs Kinsey to find her elderly mother Agnes. Agnes is in poor health living in a desert town in California. Kinsey locates the old woman after being nearly run off the road by a would be hit man. Kinsey is targeted for death by Tyrone Patty who has bent sent up the river due to Kinsey's good detective work. Kinsey finds protection in the arms of PI Robert Dietz. There are several close calls and a surprise ending to this tale.
The book moves along at a jaunty pace with several twists and unexpected turns before the nettlesome case is solved. I found this novel to be interesting in its depiction of how a PI investigates happenings from 70 or more years ago by studying microfilm and newspaper records in the public library. A good quick read to make the hours and pages fly on an otherwise boring day. Grafton is good!

HASH(0x921d2ad0) étoiles sur 5 Really terrific 16 avril 2000
Par Shannon Byrd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Plowing ahead with the series, I found 'G' to be engrossing and chilling. I enjoyed the double plots and also very much liked how Grafton brought in many of the characters from past novels and fleshed them out a little. Bringing back Dietz was a stroke of genius as it allows Kinsey to play off of a male version of herself. I see from other reviews that he will be in future books - can't wait. Overall the plot and suspense of the story were one of the best...it's definitely a don't-miss in the Kinsey series.

HASH(0x90718078) étoiles sur 5 An excellent introduction to Kinsey 23 décembre 1999
Par Christina P. Branson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I am usually a stickler for reading series books in chronological order. An exception is in order for this book. I'm up to M in this series, and I'd say that G IS FOR GUMSHOE is probably my favorite so far. It is an excellent introduction to Kinsey Millhone, and it is far better than A IS FOR ALIBI. So if you haven't read any and are looking for a good place to start, this is it!

HASH(0x9041b990) étoiles sur 5 Excellent, Best book yet ! 16 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This book is excellent. I couldn't put it down. Don't take it on vacation with you, you would never leave the hotel. My hair stylist asked me to PLEASE put the book away while she finishes my hair, once she was done she promptly walked over to the book store and purchased it and said " It must be good, the way your head was buried in it "

HASH(0x9033b978) étoiles sur 5 Takes serious liberties with logic, common sense, and the role of law 10 août 2012
Par Jake Hoehl - Publié sur Amazon.com
This Kinsey Millhone is a serious letdown after reading A-F in the series. In it, Kinsey is revealed to be nothing more than softboiled at best. Not too swift or brave, somewhat weaker than any of the previous books, but not really clear why?

I had problems with with several logical aspects of the primary antagonist, as she never makes it clear why someone that is known to have killed a police officer and other people (among other known crimes) is walking around after spending some very short period in jail - did he escape or was freed multiple times on technicalities (extremely unlikely considering the information known to the police about the guy). Also, people that are fugitives or known cop killers never ever get awarded any amount of custody or visitation rights to their minor children unless they have 10's of millions of dollars and live in certain other countries - neither of which applies here. The custody aspect was in there as a writer kludge to setup a scene where they have to help the mother 'kidnap' the son back (because he has some level of legal custody - not that he's a cold blooded killer that is wanted for numerous crimes - that should be motivation enough).

Kinsey or her trained bodyguard never seem the least interested in involving the cops, the way the characters act, it's like the police wouldn't be that interested (really - in the book, the police documents on the guy note that if he's seen they should contact the police chief right away). She's portrayed in this book as extremely weak, except to confront a 70+ year old man about murders - why wouldn't she call the police in the first place - because he's old and weak enough for her to bully? It's like they figure the police wouldn't be that interested in tracking down a cop killer - yeah, maybe in bizarro world, but not in any universe that vaguely resembles reality.

Yes, it was interesting enough trying to figure out what was going on with the other half of the story, but the hitman aspect was completely ridiculous with too many obvious questions left glossed over (he was in jail after the cop killing and now he's out?!?). Not worth reading twice, probably only worth it once if it was free or nearly so.
