Publisher's Summary

1979: four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a classmate - and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing, and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns in evidence for the state, and two of his peers are convicted.

1989: one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Unrepentant and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his parents - until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That's when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help.

Narrator far too old

Narrator sounds 50 or even sixty something - far, far too old! Kinsey is only 39!

Very entertaining detective

I like Sue Grafton. This is not her best but still enjoyable. Characters are well described and plausible.
My only negative point is that the narrator sounds too old. The detective is younger and described more energetic

Sue Grafton will be missed

Not one of her very best, a little repetitive in places but still head and shoulders above the rest. The imaginary Santa Barbara now seems as real to me as places I've actually been to, and her detective, Kinsey Milhone is still a fresh, likeable character. Setting her books in the 1980s is genius. Plenty of dry wit in the mix too.
One negative, the reader was good but sounded way older than Kinsey and I found that a bit distracting

Who picked this narrator!?

Ok, who's brilliant idea was it to hire a 75 year old woman (she was born in 1941) with a poor fitting upper denture (hissing S's) to portray a 39 year...?? I had a hard time believing this septuagenarian was anything but her age. It was a major distraction from the story line. Poor choice, Audible.

Weak

Not enough plot for a full length book. Too much unnecessary detail. Struggled to finish it.
