Read Y is for Yesterday (Kinsey Millhone, #25) Online Free - The darkest and most disturbing case report from the files of Kinsey Millhone, Y is for Yesterday begins in 1979, when four teenage boys from an elite private school sexually assault a fourteen-year-old classmate—and film the attack. Not long after, the tape goes missing and the suspected thief, a fellow classmate, is murdered. In the investigation that follows, one boy turns state’s evidence and two of his peers are convicted. But the ringleader escapes without a trace.
Now, it’s 1989 and one of the perpetrators, Fritz McCabe, has been released from prison. Moody, unrepentant, and angry, he is a virtual prisoner of his ever-watchful parents—until a copy of the missing tape arrives with a ransom demand. That’s when the McCabes call Kinsey Millhone for help. As she is drawn into their family drama, she keeps a watchful eye on Fritz. But he’s not the only one being haunted by the past. A vicious sociopath with a grudge against Millhone may be leaving traces of himself for her to find…

**Update, December 2017** The alphabet sadly ends at Y, with the news of much beloved writer Sue Grafton's death, after a 2 year battle with cancer. A loss for her family and her many, many devoted readers.
This, the penultimate book in Sue Grafton's series, reminds us that the 'respectfully submi...

I only gave this three stars out of respect for my long time relationship with Kinsey. I have been reading her books for a hundred years now since "B is for Burglar". We have a long and rich relationship and this book was a disappointment. There is no other word for it. It was a let down. There w...

Sorry, but when you wait two years for a book it should be pure perfection. Sadly this was far from it.
Clearly the author is out of touch with the 80s.
1) the teenage characters all sound like 30 yos. You can have one be so introspective, but not all of them.
2) Personal computers and car phones we...

My wife and I have been reading Sue Grafton's alphabet series for 25 years and have enjoyed every one, some more than others. This is her last book and there will be no Z, since she has passed.
The book opens in 1979, with high school students Iris and Poppy, who are friends. Poppy is havi...

If you'd asked me around the 30% mark how much I was enjoying this book, my answer would have been that it would make a great last entry into the author's celebrated trip through the alphabet - titled Z is for Zzzzzzz. But somewhere around the halfway point, things started to pick up noticeably;...

First off let me say I have read all the books in this series and loved them. But this particular book just bored me to tears. I usually go through them in a couple of days but I had to force myself to read this because I won my copy in a Goodreads Giveaway and knew I had to give a review. I woul...

Please note that there are spoilers for all previous events from prior books. Do not read if you have not read up to X by Sue Grafton.
You may recall my review for X and how frustrated I was with that book. I thought that the majority of that book was just filler. Kinsey felt off and Henry drove...

Ah, those old, comfy jeans are on their last legs, but I can eke out a couple more wash ‘n wears. Sue Grafton’s A is for Alibi was published some thirty-five years ago; now she is nearing the end of the alphabet, having recently published Y is for Yesterday. Sadly, even the most familiar, pleasur...

I've read all these books and am looking forward to ending this series in a big way. I want to see Kinsey find her HEA, come to terms with her parents and extended family and, of course, solve a mystery. This case is eerily similar to an actual case from the OC about 10 years ago. It will be inte...
