A Kinsey Millhone mystery. . . 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 mulitple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the case remained unsolved.That was eighteen years ago. Now, the two men who found the body, both nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement, want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to do the legwork for them, and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. They will, they tell her, find closure if they can just identify the victim. Kinsey is intrigued by the challenge and agrees to work with them. But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what beings with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.

      • content: Grafton's seventeenth Kinsey Millhone adventure is based on an actual 1969 unsolved murder. Kinsey's old friend, retired police Lieutenant Con Dolan, and his ailing partner, Stacey Oliphant, have never solved the case of a Jane Doe found stabbed nearly twenty years ago. The two aging cops enlist Kinsey's assistance to investigate the ice-cold case. Kinsey begins an intense journey into the past, uncovering clues to the homicide and, in a strange twist, to her own lost childhood. Judy Kaye performs with a confidence that comes of knowing her characters well. Her rendition of Kinsey is smart-alecky as ever, locals are appropriately small-town, while the two old men's raspy voices sound tobacco- and whiskey-stained. Another knockout performance by Kaye makes for one of the most entertaining alphabet mysteries yet. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
