D is for Deadbeat - Review

D is for Deadbeat by Sue Grafton is one of The Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries series.  Kinsey Millhone is a thiry two year old single private investigator that has been given a $25,000 cashier’s check to be handed to a fifteen year old by the name of Tony Gahan.  The check that she was given as a retainer bounces and this put Kinsey in a series of interesting twists to solve this mystery.  Can she find the rightful owner of the cashier’s check and return it in a timely manner? Can she solve this mystery before she winds up dead?

This was my first Sue Grafton mystery.  I actually listened to this as an audiobook from the library.  Sue’s description of her characters were easy to follow and the book was very easy to follow.  I wasn’t really impressed with the language but I do understand that she was telling it from the characters point of view.  Would I read the others?  For the mystery, yes, and hope that all of them would not be full of the language that this one was.
