U is for Undertow – Sue Grafton

A young man remembers meeting two “pirates” in the woods behind his childhood home, and begins to wonder whether they really were looking for buried treasure…. Detective Cheney Phillips points him in Kinsey’s direction.

The scenario and setting seemed so familiar I thought I might have already read U is for Undertow. But no – it must have been a Bosch.

Along with the main murder mystery, we also learn more about Kinsey’s recently reappeared family and events surrounding her early years as an orphan.
