#54 D is for Deadbeat by Sue Grafton

Date Started: Saturday, August 13, 2005
Date Finished: Tuesday, August 16, 2005
My BookCrossing Rating: 6 stars
There were some things I liked better about this one and some things I didn't like as much. For starters, like I mentioned for the B book, I noticed Grafton getting a bit too overly detailed sometimes about things I really didn't care too much about. Like spending 2 pages to detail the layout of an attic??! I found my mind wandering and had to go back and reread these sections to make sure I didn't miss anything important... which I didn't, but still, by the 3rd or 4th time I ran into this, I was groaning inwardly.

Beyond that, the story itself was good, and as in previous stories, the ending was a surprise. I also like that Kinsey's character is beginning to show a few more female characteristics, and I like that she finally gave in to some of her temptations with regards to Jonah. I'm hoping she continues in this direction in later books.
