Synopsis

S is for silence: the silence of the lost, the silence of the grave, the silence of oblivion.

Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband. But for the not-quite-seven-year-old daughter Daisy that she left behind, her absence has never been explained or forgotten.

Now, thirty-four years later, she wants the solace of closure.

In S IS FOR SILENCE, Kinsey Millhone's nineteenth excursion into the world of suspense and misadventure, S is for surprises as Sue Grafton takes a whole new approach to telling the tale. And S is for superb: Kinsey and Grafton at their best.

About the Author

A contemporary American author of detective novels, Sue Taylor Grafton, was born in Louisville, Kentucky as the daughter of another detective novelist, C. W. Grafton. Even though her father had an influence, she has commented that her biggest influence came from author Ross MacDonald.

Sue received her bachelor's degree from University of Louisville in English literature, humanities, and fine art. Upon graduation, Sue worked as a hospital admissions clerk, cashier, and medical secretary. She wrote several novels that were not successful.

After moving into writing screenplays for television, Sue became interested in novels that carried a central theme through each title. She saw a book that alphabetized methods of murder, and immediately started writing what became her best-known works, "the alphabet novels". Each story is set around a fictional California town based on Santa Barbara. The novels are written from the perspective of a female investigator. After her G novel, Grafton was able to devote all of her time to writing her novels. She has given many refusals to those who wanted to buy her novels from which to make movies. She has no desire to work with Hollywood.

I loved s is for silence by sue grafton. This is another one of the Kinsey books, and I feel like they just get better and better! True, we don't get much about Kinsey and her life in this book… it's focused on the disapearance of a woman named Violet, back in 1953, which is 33 or so years before the present time of this novel it's set in the late 80s. I love Cold Case on tv, and this was just like one. Kinsey is going back to the town to try to dig up clues on this really old mystery, and mixed in are stories from the point of view of various characters, happening back in the days leading up to her dissapearance way back then. I love seeing how people were then and now. She builds the characters so well, I got right into the story. And, the whole time, you're wondering, which of these people whose heads I've been in may be a killer… and you're hoping that Violet just ran away. Do read this book, which works fine as a stand-alone book if you haven't read the rest of the series.
