Good "basic" detective story
Kinsey's personal life continues to evolve in M Is For Malice. Set in 1986, the total lack of laptop computers, internet & cell phones are a bit jarring and will probably confuse younger readers (why doesn't she just google this person?) who don't pick up on the clues, do the math and figure out what year it is.
I am an occasional reader of the Kinsey Millhone series rather than a hardcore fan, but it seems to me that they have a tendency to get better, rather than weaker like most series.
I rate this novel 4 stars out of 5. It can be found on Amazon.com here: M Is for Malice by Sue Grafton.
