"F" is for Fugitive - Sue Grafton
When Kinsey Millhone first arrives in Floral Beach, California, it's
hard for her to picture the idyllic coastal town as the setting of a
brutal murder. Seventeen years ago, the body of Jean Timberlake―a
troubled teen who had a reputation with the boys―was found on the beach.
Her boyfriend Bailey Fowler was convicted of her murder and imprisoned,
but he escaped.
After all this time, Bailey's finally been
captured. Believing in his son's innocence, Bailey's father wants Kinsey
to find Jean's real killer. But most of the residents in this
tight-knit community are convinced Bailey strangled Jean. So why are
they so reluctant to answer Kinsey's questions? If there's one thing
Kinsey's got plenty of it's persistence. And that's exactly what it's
going to take to crack the lid on this case.
As Kinsey gets closer
to solving Jean's murder, the more dirty little secrets she uncovers in
a town where everyone has something to hide―and a killer will kill
again to keep the past buried...

MY THOUGHTS: Jean was a
troubles seventeen year old girl who was found dead on the beach after
being strangled to death. She was pregnant at the time of her murder.

Kinsey starts her investigation and soon finds out that no one wants to answer any of her questions. The more Kinsey digs into the crime, the more secrets come to light. There are two more persons
murdered. Along the way we learn of secret love affairs and a murderer
who is adept with a shotgun.
