B is for Burglar - Kinsey Millhone #2 by Sue Grafton
I didn't expect to enjoy this mystery as much as I did. Kinsey is growing on me. She's a hands on kind of gal with a wry sense of humor that appeals to me. She's tenacious, but knows when to take a step back and let her target reveal himself or herself.
This is only the second book in a long series, though I suspect that at least a few of characters will make repeat appearances. I rather like Rosie, owner of her favourite diner. I can imagine trying to order a meal there and being told by Rosie that she will bring me what I need to be eating, that I don't get any say.
I listened to the audio book as read by Mary Peiffer, 7 hours 42 minutes unabridged. Ms. Peiffer does a good job of reading both the male and female characters. She really brings out Kinsey's blunt nature and sets a good pace without rushing.
I look forward to reading more of Kinsey's investigations.
