She was a "Jane Doe," an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff's Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were multiple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the murder remained unsolved... That was eighteen years ago. Now the two men who found the body are nearing the end of their careers in law enforcement—and they want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to help with their legwork and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. Kinsey is intrigued by the cold case and agrees to take the job. But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what begins with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.

Privatdetektivin Kinsey Millhone wird von 2 ehemaligen Kollegen der Mordkommission Los Angeles gebeten, einen 18 Jahre zurückliegenden unaufgeklärten Mordfall noch einmal aufzurollen. Damals wurde die Leiche einer jungen Frau, deren Identität trotz ihrer auffallend schlechten Zähne nicht geklärt werden konnte, in einem Steinbruch gefunden. Zusammen mit den alten Polizisten geht Kinsey allen noch vorhandenen Spuren nach. Graftons Krimi, der auf einem wahren Fall beruht, setzt weniger auf Action, sondern beschreibt akribisch genau die manchmal langwierige Ermittlungsarbeit der Polizei sowie die Entwicklung der Charaktere. Das fördert die Spannung nicht gerade, trotzdem dürfte der Krimi die Fans der Kinsey-Millhone-Serie fesseln.

Kinseys Reue kommt beinahe zu spät: Ihr Exmann wird lebensgefährlich verletzt, und die Detektivin gerät selbst unter Verdacht. Kinsey Millhone, Privatdetektivin mit Mut und Intuition, bleibt nichts anderes übrig, als sich selbst auf die Suche nach dem wahren Täter zu machen – nicht immer mit ganz legalen Mitteln ...

You haven't read a thriller until you read #1 New York Times bestselling author Sue Grafton's novels with her unforgettable P.I. Kinsey Millhone... "C" is for Corpse He was young-maybe twenty or so-and he must once have been a good-looking kid. Kinsey could see that. But now his body was covered in scars, his face half-collapsed. It saddened Kinsey and made her curious. She could see he was in a lot of pain. But for three weeks, as Kinsey'd watched him doggedly working out at the local gym, putting himself through a grueling exercise routine, he never spoke. Then one Monday morning when there was no one else in the gym, Bobby Callahan approached her. His story was hard to credit: a murderous assault by a tailgating car on a lonely rural road, a roadside smash into a canyon 400 feet below, his Porsche a bare ruin, his best friend dead. The doctors had managed to put his body back together again-sort of. His mother's money had seen to that. What they couldn't fix was his mind, couldn't restore the huge chunks of memory wiped out by the crash. Bobby knew someone had tried to kill him, but he didn't know why. He knew he had the key to something that made him dangerous to the killer, but he didn't know what it was. And he sensed that someone was still out there, ready to pounce at the first sign his memory was coming back. He'd been to the cops, but they'd shrugged off his story. His family thought he had a screw loose. But he was scared-scared to death. He wanted to hire Kinsey. His case didn't have a whole lot going for it, but he was hard to resist: young, brave, hurt. She took him on. And three days later, Bobby Callahan was dead. Kinsey Millhone never welshed a deal. She'd been hired to stop a killing. Now she'd find the killer.
