Entertaining as all of Grafton's books are

  • Jul 6, 2010
U is for Undertow is one of the many Sue Grafton mystery novels. I love all of Sue Grafton’s books, and find her writing to be quite humorous. She has an edgy, sarcastic bite to her writing, which I quite enjoy. Grafton’s main character, Kinsey Millhone is extremely likeable, and someone that I personally could see myself being friendly in. Like all of her other mysteries, Grafton crafts another interesting tale about a long ago missing child case, and weaves in sub plots that keep everything very interesting. I liked everything about this story and Grafton’s writing. All of the characters add another level of complexity to the story, and as in all the other books, you have your standard characters that make reading a Kinsey Millhone novel similar to coming home. There’s something comforting about reading one of her books, if you are a fan of her writing. The book jumps back and forth between the 60’s and the 80’s, and definitely keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. There’s always an interesting surprise in store for you, and she keeps it fresh and real.  If you enjoy really knowing your characters and buying into them, this would be a great read for you.
