There are a few plot elements running loose.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
A dying father hires Kinsey to look into a 17-year-old murder case when his fugitive son is arrested after being on the lam since the original case.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
The story is far from linear, and Kinsey has to do her normal knocking and stumbling around to find the answer in a small town world. She is also staying at a motel that a bunch of the characters live in, so it has a bit of a cozy feel at times.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
There's a strange sub-story that crops up twice, refuted at the end, and left unanswered as to the original lies. Equally, there are a few too many nutjobs running around, as well as just too many people in general.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

The first half of the book was boring because nobody gave Kinsey any information. Then it hit the fan when Ori died.

I've just started the series after putting it off for many years. I can understand why it's so popular - Kinsey is great!

Solid entry in the Kinsey Milhone, with an ending that while not completely predicable, is one you still see coming. But it is Kinsey that keeps you coming back for more. Her voice is like yours, her reaction to the actions of others is also completely like yours. This series is kind of awesome.

I appreciate the continuity in this series. Everyday events (i.e., repairs, construction, recovery from physical injuries) occur in real time.
