P Is for Peril – Sue Grafton

The Kinsey Millhone series continues apace in P Is for Peril, where Sue Grafton’s Californian PI finds herself in novel territory on several fronts whilst investigating the disappearance of a doctor/manager of a local nursing home, which is also under investigation for financial irregularities. The the novelty of finding new office space which in turn leads to the novelty of a charming young love interest (albeit one that turns out to be the Peril of the title). And the final, subtly delivered plot twist both surprised and pleased me – rather more “modern” than I’d expect from Sue Grafton in Kinsey Millhone mode.
