The nineteenth novel in Sue Grafton's ever popular 'alphabet' series featuring PI Kinsey Millhone.

Just after Independence Day in July 1953 Violet Sullivan, a local good time girl living in Serena Station Southern California, drives off in her brand new Chevy and is never seen again. Left behind is her young daughter, Daisy, and Violet's impetuous husband, Foley, who had been persuaded to buy his errant wife the car only days before . . .

Now, thirty-five years later, Daisy wants closure.

Reluctant to open such an old cold case Kinsey Millhone agrees to spend five days investigating, believing at first that Violet simply moved on to pastures new. But very soon it becomes clear that a lot of people shared a past with Violet, a past that some are still desperate to keep hidden. And in a town as close-knit as Serena there aren't many places to hide when things turn vicious . . .

Review:

' A cracking return to form' -- Argus Brighton

' tantalising... a gripping, elegant and satisfying story rooted in plausible characterisation.' -- The Herald

'Grafton displays a freshness of tempo and plotting that puts younger writers to shame.' -- The Guardian

'Grafton only gets better, and it helps that her sleuth Kinsey Millhone is so likeable and amusing.' -- Daily Mail

'Like her great predecessor Ross Macdonald, Grafton foregrounds characterisation at all times' -- Barry Forshaw, The Independent

'S is for Silence demonstrates why Grafton has such a dedicated following, with Millhone...trying to crack a particularly intractable mystery' -- Barry Forshaw, The Independent

'excellent' -- Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'like sitting down with an old friend.' -- Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph Seven

'some of the observation of small-town American life here has the acuity of Richard Ford.' -- Barry Forshaw, The Independent

'the novels [have] an intelligent, nostalgic atmosphere' -- Joan Smith, Sunday Times Culture

Book Description:
