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…

This, the penultimate book in Sue Grafton's series, reminds us that the 'respectfully submitted' tales of Kinsey Millhone's 1980's adventures, have almost reached their alphabetic conclusion.
Reading Kinsey is a guilty pleasure, a visit with an old friend. "Y", a particularly dark instalment in th...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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;...

It's been awhile since I've read a Sue Grafton but it's like going to your book closet and picking out a favorite pair of comfortable shoes. Great storytelling. It's always fun to see phone booths and technology from 1979-1989.

Well it was fun to be back reading the series. I’m very eager to read Z. Its publication is still 2 years away.
This book felt more like 2017 (sans computers, voice mail, cell phones, etc. technology) than it does 1989 & 1979, the 2 years when the action takes place. Otherwise it felt too mode...

Sue Grafton has been a huge influence on me since a friend loaned me one of her books over 15 years ago. When I can't find an interesting audio book from the library, I return to my favorites, A, B and J and T.
I like Kinsey because she's normal, she doesn't have mind rocking intimate relations, d...

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...
