F is for Fugitive by Sue Grafton (1989) – BR00132 (2019) – 🐸🐸🐸⚪⚪
Plot or Premise
A dying father hires Kinsey to look into a 17-year-old murder case when his fugitive son is arrested after being on the lam since the original case.
What I Liked
The story is far from linear, and Kinsey has to do her normal knocking and stumbling around to find the answer in a small town world. She is also staying at a motel that a bunch of the characters live in, so it has a bit of a cozy feel at times.
What I Didn’t Like
There’s a strange sub-story that crops up twice, refuted at the end, and left unanswered as to the original lies. Equally, there are a few too many nutjobs running around, as well as just too many people in general.
The Bottom Line
There are a few plot elements running loose.
