*** W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton

W is for Wasted is the latest installment in the Kinsey Millhone series (only 3 more to go!) and is also the one to delve most deeply into the detective heroine’s personal history. We knew about her failed relationships but she always presented herself as an orphan with no one left in her family of origin. In this book the death of a homeless man introduces her to a family she thought was lost — not always with friendly results, but it is family. The murder of another man is eventually connected, in a lengthy but I thought satisfying way, to the other death for a medical mystery on top of the family connection. I enjoyed the story both for the personal aspects and the lack of hard-to-believe twists that seem to clutter the last few books.
