Description

Of #1 New York Times-bestselling author Sue Grafton, NPR's Maureen Corrigan said, “Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters.” With only one letter left, Grafton's many devoted readers will share that sentiment.

The darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone, Y is for Yesterday begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old 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 state’s evidence and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace.
       
Now, it’s 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents—until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That’s when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he’s not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find…

  • Not my favorite, but a good read

    I’ve read all of this series in order. Some of them are great, a couple are so-so, this one is alright, but not the best. The main story is good, but the backstory is a bit repetitive. Still worth reading if you are a fan, just not among my favorites from Sue Grafton.
  • Best Yet

    I would rate this as her best yet. Like a master magician, she constantly shifts the focus from one suspect to another, until the reader is hopelessly entangled in a kaleidoscope of theories. One thing she does which she has never done before: she neatly concludes every tale she started. That leaves the reader satisfied, but horrified that this might be her last...
  • The series ended many books ago

    This is sad. I was really looking forward to this book. I literally skipped hundreds of pages and it still made sense. I ended up not finishing. She can’t possibly wrap up Kinsey in Z and didn’t try here to begin. Kinsey’s life’s questions will have to remain unanswered because this was the last book for me. I will read them over up until about the mid alphabet when they were still something. So sad.

    I was disappointed. Had a hard time keeping up with the characters and jumping back and forth in time. Found myself speed-reading to get done. Not her usual quality.

    Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone never fails to engage readers as she meanders through Santa Teresa to solve her mysteries. The only negative about Y is that it is right before Z...and that is a sad thing for fans.
  • Ghost Writer?

    "A-X" I've loved Sue Grafton novels. Then their was "Y". Boring, repetitive, mean spirited even. Opinion: There is no way Sue Grafton wrote this book. I always smile as our hero weaves her way through daily life. "Y"? No humor. Skip this one .& find another heroine!
  • NOT her best

    Confusion abounds; names and descriptions of characters blend together - you'll need a scorecard to keep up with this twisty plot. This is the only one of Nevada Barr's books i really can't recommend but I'm sure her loyal fans (me included) will just have to read it.
  • Not up to snuff

    I have always loved sue grafting books. I guess it is getting harder to remember 1989 and this book really seemed like she was lost in the weeds without a cellphone. While the ending was a little surprising, the whole long book was a constant rehash
