O is for Outlaw - Sue Grafton

Product Description(
Through fourteen books, fans have been fed short rations when it comes to Kinsey Millhone's past: a morsel here, a dollop there. We know of the aunt who raised her, the second husband who left her, the long-lost family up the California coast. But husband number one remained a blip on the screen until now.
The call comes on a Monday morning from a guy who scavenges defaulted storage units at auction. Last week he bought a stack. They had stuff in them--Kinsey stuff. For thirty bucks, he'll sell her the lot. Kinsey's never been one for personal possessions, but curiosity wins out and she hands over a twenty (she may be curious but she loves a bargain). What she finds amid childhood memorabilia is an old undelivered letter.
It will force her to reexamine her beliefs about the breakup of that first marriage, about the honor of that first husband, about an old unsolved murder. It will put her life in the gravest peril."O" Is for Outlaw: Kinsey's fifteenth adventure into the dark side of human nature.

MY THOUGHTS:  We finally learn more about Kinsey.  Her first husband, Micky, has been shot and is in a coma.  The cops come calling at Kinsey's place, asking questions.  Kinsey hasn't heard from Mickey for 15 years.  Kinsey's interest is up and she's not doing anything at the moment, so Kinsey starts an investigation.  Her investigation leads her to Los Angels, CA and Lexington, KY.  Where something links all the players.  It all revolves around a moment in time in Viet Nam, when 4 of the players were all together.  With this info Kinsey's life is at stake.  I give this book 5.....
