When Kinsey Millhone first arrives in Floral Beach, California, it's hard for her to picture the idyllic coastal town as the setting of a brutal murder. Seventeen years ago, the body of Jean Timberlake--a troubled teen who had a reputation with the boys--was found on the beach. Her boyfriend Bailey Fowler was convicted of her murder and imprisoned, but he escaped. After all this time, Bailey's finally been captured. Believing in his son's innocence, Bailey's father wants Kinsey to find Jean's real killer. But most of the residents in this tight-knit community are convinced Bailey strangled Jean. So why are they so reluctant to answer Kinsey's questions? If there's one thing Kinsey's got plenty of it's persistence. And that's exactly what it's going to take to crack the lid on this case. As Kinsey gets closer to solving Jean's murder, the more dirty little secrets she uncovers in a town where everyone has something to hide--and a killer will kill again to keep the past buried...

I've just started the series after putting it off for many years. I can understand why it's so popular - Kinsey is great!

Solid entry in the Kinsey Milhone, with an ending that while not completely predicable, is one you still see coming. But it is Kinsey that keeps you coming back for more. Her voice is like yours, her reaction to the actions of others is also completely like yours. This series is kind of awesome.

I appreciate the continuity in this series. Everyday events (i.e., repairs, construction, recovery from physical injuries) occur in real time.
