    One thought on “T is for Trespass”

    1. Book Review4 of 5 stars to T is for Trespass, the 20th book in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet mystery series, written in 2007 by Sue Grafton A great addition to the thriller series with this release And a few things begin to change Grafton introduces some updates to the format, including a different perspective and point of view by introducing the thoughts of the villain A very timely book too, focusing on elder care and the abuse that happens once people start to need assistance in order to live [...]

    2. I have been reading this series since the early nineties because I love female detective mysteries and I especially enjoy this character I continue to read it despite my disappointment, as the series has become and thin and tedious S was the most disappointing with a confusing and improbable ending.However, T has redeemed the series for me It offers a fresh perspective viewing from the villain s point of view as well and two separate mysteries to keep the reader engaged Grafton s overuse of de [...]

    3. T is for Trespass is most likely Grafton s best work to date I have been enad with this series since A is for Alibi, and consider her books easy and enjoyable reads Ms Grafton creates a diverse assortment of colorful characters surrounding her main protagonist private investigator Kinsey Millhone However, this novel grapples with issues far serious than the dangers of a quarter pounder or falling in love with the wrong man Grafton plunges the reader into the dark world of identity theft, insura [...]

    4. Kinsey Millhone is back It seems a long time since I ve last seen her I looked up the pub date of S is for Silence, and found it was released in December 2005, so I guess I was right.It s 1987, and Kinsey s elderly neighbour Gus Vronsky has had a fall and been hospitalized Kinsey manages to track down his great great niece who lives in New York She flies out to Santa Teresa and hires a home aide, charging Kinsey with the responsibility of checking her references, telling her that only a basic ch [...]

    5. I think that I mostly enjoy this series because I love the character of Henry Pitts so much He s never got as big a part as I d like, but he s in each book enough that I get my Henry fix He turns 88 in this book This book felt a bit darker than most in the series, with topics such as identity theft, elder abuse, etc But I always find this series and its characters a comforting read Maybe this one slightly less comforting, but it was interesting and I really liked it Intend to read the entire ser [...]

    6. This is your average Kinsey It s rather long For me the pace was a bit plodding Every third or fourth chapter was done in the mind narrator of the perp who with identity theft entry was also taking a housebound Senior s wealth and property Crabby and mean Gus, who lives next door to Henry Quite quickly were the profits moving out, at that On a whole, the ending portions went over the top, IMHO There was an accident case quite separate as well, and lots of nosy neighbor work by Kinsey amid invest [...]

    7. I really enjoy all the Kinsey Millhone stories, but I think this one is definitely one of the better ones at least for a while In T is for Trespass, Kinsey gets caught up in a case of Elder Abuse when her crabby old neighbour No, not the amazing Henry takes a fall is in need of an in home carer we meet Solana Rojas or that s who Kinsey thinks she is, even after doing a light background check on her Not your usual criminal bad guy but certainly evil Will Kinsey be able to prove her suspicions or [...]

    8. T is for Tiresome T is for Tedious T is for Tried to finish it, but just couldn t I have read all of Sue Grafton s mysteries and, while I can t remember all of them, I ve always had a general feeling of satisfaction upon completing her books I hated this one One third of the way through, no discernible action had yet occurred I skipped the entire middle, read the last part of the book, and didn t feel like I d missed a thing The book was loaded with unnecessary detail Do we really need to know e [...]

    9. Favorite quote In my experience, the urge to rescue generates aggravation for the poor would be heroine without any discernable effect on the person in need of help You can t save others from themselves because those who make a perpetual muddle of their lives don t appreciate your interfering with the drama they ve created They want your poor sweet baby sympathy, but don t want to change AMEN Sue Grafton is in my standard cannon of authors I enjoy her books but not so much that I have to buy the [...]

    10. I am really loving the Kinsey Millhone alphabet series I love mysteries in general, and I was fortunate enough to stumble across Sue Grafton s amazing contract deal seriously, 26 books guaranteed at about L or M I zoomed through A to there, and now I m with the rest of the world, waiting painfully for each new installment I had trouble with S in that I couldn t jump right back into that world I kept confusing Kinsey s life with elements from other mysteries I d read, and I worried that would hap [...]

    11. Perhaps the only thing that disturbed me about this book is that I read too many reviews before starting that warned that I would be reading Grafton s most disturbing novel to date I therefore kept waiting, worriedly, for something to horrible and awful to happen Many bad things happen, but nothing quite to the magnitude I thought perhaps I ve read worse But that s certainly not Grafton s fault This book departs from Grafton s usual style of letting her protagonist, Kinsey, tell the entire story [...]

    12. This book has a hidden message about preying on the elderly using the court system It is not limited to individuals but extends to government agencies It also highlights the need to monitor caregivers and to watch for isolation.

    13. WOW How does Sue Grafton do it I am in love with the character Kinsey Millhone all over again The Millhone series begins with A is for Alibi and each book thereafter is titled after a letter of the alphabet T is for Trespass is definitely one of the best of the series.Once again we are reading about Kinsey s 1987 life in Santa Teresa, 95 miles north of Los Angeles, California She is a 37 year old private detective, living in a building behind her landlord, 87 year old Henry Pitt Her parents died [...]

    14. Originally I was going to give it two stars,but let s be honest I didn t like this book at ALL.The only other Grafton book I ve tried was A is for Alibi, so I am not a fan And I think you have to be a fan to forgive all the silliness that went on in this book I was not charmed by Kinsey She seems to want to be alone in the world except for her two almost ninety year old friends, even though she s only 37 And although she s all of 37, she still only likes to eat quarter pounders with cheese or ar [...]

    15. 4.5 stars Yes, there are some dark themes here, ranging from elder abuse and identity theft to a bit of pedophilia Thankfully, because it s Kinsey, there is also plenty of well placed comic relief I d resisted reading this one for years, but I m glad I finally pressed through, as I found this one of the best in the series so far By the way, if you re looking for a fast paced mystery series in which the PI is someone most any reader can identify with, slightly than slightly badass who prefers pe [...]

    16. I loved this book in Sue Grafton s alphabet mysteries It s like visiting with a good friend who has all sorts of crazy things happening to her and getting a full rundown Kinsey Millhone is such a great character and I adore her neighbor landlord Henry who is in his late 80 s and full of excitement himself In this story, Kinsey and Henry s grumpy neighbor Gus has a fall that injures him and he is going to need in home care His only is Melanie, his great niece in New York She only reluctantly come [...]

    17. The 20th book in the Alphabet series featuring the intrepid Kinsey Millhone, is a very nice addition to the set It s also another example of the author taking a slightly different approach to telling the story this time around We see this right off the bat when the story begins from the third person perspective of a character named Solana The comfort zone that was Kinsey s first person narrative was not to be at least until the second chapter when things get back to normal.Solana is the big bad [...]

    18. I thought this was a good addition to the series an interesting topic and sufficiently suspenseful I also liked that there were other situations Kinsey was dealing with, so it wasn t just a one note mystery The ending was too sensational, but it was brief so I was fine with it.That said, I m becoming a little weary that Kinsey is stuck in the 80s A cell phone and the Internet would seriously help this girl out Elder abuse, identity theft and pedophilia are complex issues, and they could have bee [...]

    19. There are few villians I despise than those who prey on the innocent, the young or the elderly I guess that kind of defines all villains This story made me think a lot about what it could mean to age and not have good health Reading a Kinsey Millhone novel is a bit like going home to your smart aleck sister Really enjoyable and very comfortable.

    20. In the main, I liked this one much than many others in the series It jumped back forth in terms of POV between Ms Millhone a thoroughly dislikable antagonist I felt deeply sorry for the elderly next door neighbor NOT Henry, who is also one of the most likable characters in the series I wonder what I will be like in my dotage The ending was MUCH in keeping with hard boiled detective fiction, so perhaps hope springs eternal Only four 4 novels before I am totally caught up

    21. This will probably be my last Kinsey Millhone for a while, even though it was well written and absorbing Throughout the three days morning and evenings it took me to read T Is for Trespass, I found myself with low level anxiety that I finally figured out was worry over Gus Grafton created a convincing sociopath in the fake Solana Rojas, and then doubled the horror with the creepy son and unloaded these twin forces of evil on Kinsey s next door neighbor Whom I don t think we ve met before it s am [...]

    22. I ve been a fan of Sue Grafton since A is for Alibi, but I hadn t read any of her books LATELY until this past week, when I gulped down two see my review of S is for Silence Ordinarily, I like to spread out mystery reads, but sometimes you gotta just live dangerously.T is for Trespass is a different kind of mystery We actually know throughout the story who the bad guy is and what they re doing The question is how Kinsey Millhone will stop the bad stuff going on In fact, there s than one bad guy [...]

    23. Grafton departs from her usual style, switching between chapters narrated by Kinsey, and chapters narrated by the villain in this story, an identity thief who insinuates herself into a neighbor s life An interesting concept, but I finished the book feeling like I hadn t spent enough time with Kinsey, so I think I prefer the usual format where Kinsey narrates it all I also noticed that, as we get further in time from the setting of these stories, Grafton can t seem to resist tossing in these not [...]

    24. I hadn t read one of Grafton s alphabet books for nearly 10 years, and decided to pick up where I d left off with T Funny, I initially was thinking T was for tedious, because presumably in the spirit of authenticity, she describes every meal, every hour, every ordinary encounter with such detail But then as the plot picked up and particularly in the very satisfying ending, I found myself reminded why Grafton novels are so compelling I know I m in the hands of a master, who knows what she s doing [...]

    25. The Kinsey material is top notch A few new things added to tne myriad of details you already knew about her, thrown in there to keep you interested The third person perspective lent by the creepy Solana is a nice little interjection Where Grafton really shines, and I think this has always been one of her strong points, are the periphery characters she develops In this book there are a couple of side stories that get just a standard fleshing out treatment, and became almost important to me than [...]

    26. While I had slight problems with some aspects of Kinsey s character in this book, I have to admit, it worked This is the best of the series A note of personal trivia this book was written in 2007, which is coincidentally same year I discovered the series, and read the first two or three books Since then, I ve read three or four books, in order, each year If I knew what I was missing, I wouldn t have taken 9 years to get to it.

    27. I am again rating this book two stars only because I find the writing style absorbing However, I do have my complains on some paragraphs with too many details of Kinsey s daily routine I wasn t interested about those details so I skimmed the paragraphs.I find Kinsey very emotionless She is thirty seven years old and her life is just a mess, there s nothing special, or unique about her, and I wasn t any bit curious in figuring her out.

    28. In dit boek volgt Sue Grafton een andere methode, dan in de eerdere negentien boeken van de serie Kinsey Millhone is nog steeds hoofdpersoon Ze werkt ook nog steeds als priv detective en ook in dit deel probeert ze bewijzen te leveren voor misdaden en overtredingen, vaak op het gebied van bedrog bij verzekeringen en huurachterstanden.Maar in vorige boeken werd er meestal een moord gepleegd, die Kinsey moest oplossen De benodigde spanning wordt hier niet geleverd door een gepleegde misdaad, maar [...]
