#26 I is for Innocent by Sue Grafton

My Rating: 6 out of 10 stars

I found this story a bit of a disappointment after the previous two, because Kinsey was back to her previous detached and impersonal demeanor.

Kinsey has been assigned a case previously started by longtime friend and mentor, Morley Shrine, who dropped dead on Sunday after dinner. She’s asked to collect the required evidence, and serve subpoenas, for a wrongful death civil trial attempting to prove the guilt of David Barney, a man previously aquitted of the 6 year old murder of his ex-wife. But was Morley’s death really the result of his sloppy lifestyle and bad heart? Or was he getting a little too close to the truth?
