BOTTOM-LINE:
Pretty good story, could have been a contender.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Kinsey gets a blast from the past from her ex-husband, Mickey Magruder.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
Kinsey finds out that when she walked out of their marriage thinking he was guilty of murder/manslaughter, he actually had an alibi that he didn't reveal. He was never convicted, and in the years since, they've had no contact. It's interesting to see her work through a sense of guilt and a desire to know the real truth. Before she finds him, someone shoots him on the street and he's in a coma. Soon she's wearing his leather jacket and hunting down his shooter. The story is solid but does jump around quite a bit to get to the final bit.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The solution is a bit "out there" for pieces tying together, and like a couple of the previous books, feels a little unfair to the reader. Not as bad as previous, however.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Another mystery in the Sue Grafton series. Kinsey gets involved in clearing her ex-husband's name and finding out who shot him."
