"A" is for Alibi

When Laurence Fife was murdered, few mourned his passing. A prominent divorce attorney with a reputation for single-minded ruthlessness on behalf of his clients, Fife was also rumored to be a dedicated philanderer. Plenty of people in the picturesque southern California town of Santa Teresa had a reason to want him dead. Including, thought the cops, his young and beautiful wife, Nikki. With motive, access, and opportunity, Nikki was their number-one suspect. The jury thought so, too. Eight years later and out on parole, Niki Fife hires Kinsey Millhone to find out who really killed her late husband. A trail that is eight years cold. A trail that reaches out to enfold a bitter, wealthy, and foul-mouthed old woman and a young boy, born deaf, whose memory cannot be trusted. A trail that leads to a lawyer defensively loyal to a dead partner--and disarmingly attractive to Millhone; to an ex-wife, brave, lucid, lovely--and still angry over Fife's betrayal of her; to a not-so-young secretary with too high a salary for too few skills--and too many debts left owing: The trail twists to include them all, with Millhone following every turn until it finally twists back on itself and she finds herself face-to-face with a killer cunning enough to get away with murder.

I‘m not sure if this is a “didn‘t age well” situation or just not my cup of tea. I‘ve always wanted to give the series a try, now I know I don‘t need to. We listened on #audio during a road trip, otherwise I wouldn‘t have finished. #MountTBR #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks I've heard a lot of positive reviews for this series but haven't tried them myself. Sad to hear you didn't hit it off!! 2mo

Some of the sweet ladies who come into our little FOTL charity bookshop have been telling me how much they love these books. This first one came out in 1982 and it held up pretty well. It may have even been pretty racy in its day. I had to keep reminding myself of the technological differences of 40 years ago. Nifty little mystery to keep me busy whilst gardening this weekend. I‘ll certainly see if Libby has the others.

Ruthiella These books are fun. Grafton also kept them in the ‘80s as she continued to write, which worked well and gave the series a good continuity. 7mo
Suet624 I just started reading this one - have never read a Grafton and I figured it was about time. Plus it was available on Libby, so there's that. :) 4mo

My mom loved the Kinsey Millhone series and I inherited most of the set from her. I just finished “A” is for Alibi and enjoyed it. It was a quick, easy read and was not complicated. I enjoyed that it didn‘t have so many twists, which is more realistic to me. Now, on to “B” is for Burglar!

So for the #19822022 challenge I decided to finally read the A is for Alibi series! I am absolutely loving them! I love Kinsey‘s attitude and the cases she solves. It‘s a great series so far and I‘m so glad I‘ve started finally. My library does a tailored titles every weekand when I put this series on there, they suggested One for the Money, which I‘ve loved for years, so this series is a perfect fit! #1982 #1985 #1986 #1987

Librarybelle Hooray! I enjoyed A is for Alibi and need to get back to the series! 10mo

This was a trip down memory lane to some extent as I read this series when the books were published. Now Kinsey seems both a woman ahead if her time, yet very much of her time. Felt dated to me, so I am not going with my idea of rereading the series. It even put Emmy to sleep!. #19822022

The first half was compelling and there were some twists, but it was pretty obvious early on who the murderer was. So I spent the second half waiting for Kinsey to clue in. I skimmed the final chase scene which had been forecasted. 🐕‍🦺 Plus I never really worried about Kinsey, knowing she has 24 more letters in the alphabet to tackle. 😆 I liked Kinsey and her methodical approach, but the 1980s fatphobia was hard to take. A straight forward 👇

merelybookish mystery. Grafton had written for TV before she became a novelist. That visual scene-setting came through in her descriptions of a room or a character's appearance or behavior. I started to find it distracting, although I guess those details are what helps a reader (and Kinsey) solve the mystery. This is my second #CloakandDaggerChristmas prompt completed. 14mo

Unbelievable!!! This was posted by Sue Grafton‘s daughter on her Facebook page. Sue was vehemently against this.

“I will never sell [Kinsey] to Hollywood,” the outspoken Grafton said in a 1997 interview. “And, I have made my children promise not to sell her. We‘ve taken a blood oath, and if they do so I will come back from the grave: which they know I can do.👇🏻

sisilia They‘re going to have to pass the word on to my grandchildren: we do not sell out our grandma. I just will not let them touch her. I‘ve trashed other writers, I‘m not gonna let them have a crack at me.” (edited) 1y
sisilia Her daughter also acknowledged this after her death. And now they are doing this. Sue‘s husband is the executive producer! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Wow!!! 🤯 1y
vivastory I saw this & I had the same thought. It's pretty disheartening. She couldn't have possibly been any more adamant in her opposition to this. 1y

Bookzombie I‘m late to this convo, but I was disappointed to hear this, especially since she was so adamant about it. 1y
sisilia @Bookzombie Yeah, the fans are more protective of her wishes. I don‘t want to watch the TV series; I‘d like to preserve my imagination of Kinsey and the vintage set up of the alphabet series 1y

I'm not scared to bail on books, but this one surprised me. Every time I pick it up to read, I get so bored that my mind wanders and I scroll through my phone instead. I know so many people love this series, but the dialogue is making me roll my eyes and the main character doesn't feel like much of a bad ass when she cares about what happens to her pantyhose. It's a no from me.

Ruthiella Well, in the dark ages (ie the 1980s) pantyhose was pretty important! 😂 So glad that‘s over! 2y

Scochrane26 I read this series slowly over several years, sometimes physical & some audio. It‘s a good series. 2y

Doing some retail therapy today. I found out my local school district is not accepting student teachers due to Covid, and my current job doesn't count. I've already had to delay my degree by a semester, and may have to do it again if my college won't work with me. Pandemics are a bitch.

Anyway, this is just my Book Outlet order. Not pictured is my Thrift Books and BotM orders. I'll be fine. 😅

I identify a lot with Kinsey.

1. I did not play sports (not that coordinated), but went to my first hockey game at 3.5 years old. I am a Minnesota North Stars fan, but when they left I became a Philadelphia Flyers fan. Of course, I support the Wild now too.
2. I am thankful for my friends this week.

Thanks for the tag @Cosmos_Moon

Cosmos_Moon I used to go to hockey games when I was a kid, but we only had a semi-pro team... the Green Bay Gamblers. It was fun, but never really got into following hockey. Thanks for joining in this week! 2y
Mollyanna @Cosmos_Moon I grew up in MN, it‘s the national pastime there. Most kids can skate before they can walk. When I left it became hard to follow as it was very regionalized back then. It‘s got a bigger following now. 2y

I always picture the young Sue Grafton as Kinsey Millhone ?

***So opposed is Grafton to the idea of having her books' protagonist, private detective Kinsey Millhone, portrayed on screen, that she's made her children promise to never sell the rights after her death, threatening to haunt them if they do. "We've taken a blood oath, and if they do so I will come back from the grave, which they know I can do," she said.***

My maternal grandmother was a Constant Reader & an avid reader. Aside from King she loved mysteries. She didn't have a particularly large book collection, preferring to utilize the library collection. I didn't get my love of reading & libraries from my grandmother. I got those qualities from my mom. But I'm certain that my mom probably learned the invaluable art of how to entertain herself from her own mother. Having just finished the👇

vivastory initial entry of Grafton's Alphabet Series I wish I could spend the afternoon discussing it with my grandmother. I vaguely recall seeing the distinctive editions on her bookshelves. I know she would have appreciated Kinsey's sense of humor, independence & sense of fair play. 2y
IamIamIam I really enjoyed this series on audio but our library didn't have anything past K or L. Kinsey is a great character!! 💜 I love that you connect these with your grandma. Mine was an avid reader but we read very different stuff. That never stopped us from talking about books with each other, though! 2y
vivastory @IamIamIam I had the same experience. I always loved King's movie adaptations, but I didn't really read him then & I wasn't reading mysteries either. So when I was staying at her house we'd talk about our books, but they were different genres. 2y

lynneamch I enjoyed these very much. Because Grafton died before writing a book for Z, her daughter said something like "For us the alphabet will always end with Y." Touching and poignant. 2y
Hooked_on_books I have read every book in this series and can‘t believe SG is gone now. My mom always encouraged me to read and introduced me to this series a long time ago. We never quite read them together, but we were definitely reading these books during the same era. Pretty sure she‘s read them all, too. I miss Kinsey. 2y

Audiobooks have become a thing because I can listen to them during work. I would rather physically read a book but I don't have time to. So audiobooks it is! I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I'm not a huge mystery person but I am going to read the 2nd book in this series before I decide if I want to read more or not.

As I have said before, I first started this series back in the 1980s, and have finally gotten around to a re-read project. The storyline is thin here compared to later books which are more complex, but Kinsey Millhone is so endearingly bad-ass. Looking forward to getting reacquainted with her.

Front is the copy I got way back then. Back is one I found used and much easier for my eyes to read from 👵🏻. The first six I own are mass-markets.

batsy Love the cover on the front one! 3y
ValerieAndBooks @batsy Definitely an 80s cover 🙂 3y
cathipink Wow, I've never seen that cover before + thanks for sharing! 3y

I‘ve been meaning for years to do a complete re-read of the Kinsey Millhone mysteries. Now is good time to start that project, I think. I first read this one way back in the 1980s and have been a fan of Grafton‘s books ever since 💖

wen4blu Such a good idea! I left off somewhere in the middle of the alphabet and meant to pick them back up. 3y
Leftcoastzen Good for you ! I haven‘t read them but my friend just finished the series, she enjoyed them a lot! 3y
Suet624 Nicer read these. Look forward to hearing your thoughts. 3y

ValerieAndBooks @Leftcoastzen did she read all in a relatively short amount of time? 3y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 I‘m on B now — think I‘m definitely staying on this re-read train! It takes my mind off the news... 3y

so i‘ve been collecting this set, The Best Mysteries of All Time, for a very long time. i have almost all of them i think (88 so far with 6 more i know of that i still need) and i‘ve decided i should read some instead of just collecting them :) i‘m trying for one a month at least this year and this was the first.
