T is for Trespass by Sue Grafton (2007) – BR00146 (2019) – 🐸🐸⚪⚪⚪
Plot or Premise
Kinsey and Henry’s neighbour falls, and Kinsey helps his niece arrange a nurse to look after him. Not an easy task when he’s as grumpy as all get out.
What I Liked
Kinsey’s background check doesn’t turn up any red flags, but Kinsey’s not entirely sure about the person, and how Gus is doing, particularly after the nurse moves in. Nor should she be, since the story also gives the woman’s side of the story, and she’s a sociopath. With a very large son. Meanwhile, Kinsey has a lovely car accident to over-investigate.
What I Didn’t Like
I found the storyline a bit repetitive from previous ones — a scammer on the one hand, a fake accident situation on another. And the general elder abuse is depressing. Plus at the end, the finale is way over the top, reading more like an action movie than a Kinsey story.
The Bottom Line
A generally depressing descent from beginning to end.
