What is a determined dame detective to do when her client is murdered before the case is solved? If the private eye is Kinsey Millhone, you set out with a vengeance to find the killer.
In the third book in Sue Grafton's popular series, C Is For Corpse, Kinsey is hired to prevent a murder and suddenly finds herself embroiled in a wild, 'whodunit' of a mystery. 20 year old Bobby Callahan believes that the 'accident' which left him disfigured and with memory lapses that are, unfortunately, as wide as the Grand Canyon, was a deliberate attempt on his life. No one, it seems, will listen to him, and that's where our reluctant heroine, Kinsey, comes in.
Callahan hires Kinsey to find out who was trying to kill him. However, as in all of Kinsey's cases, nothing goes according to plan. Three days after she takes the case, Bobby Callahan is dead and Kinsey cannot rest until she finds out who the killer is and brings him, or her, to justice
