In " 'J' Is for Judgment," last year's installment of Sue Grafton's alphabetical mystery series, private eye Kinsey Millhone got the surprise of her life when she discovered a whole slew of relatives she never knew existed. Readers expecting a family reunion in the new book may be disappointed -- orphaned loner Kinsey is still mulling her options regarding her newfound kinfolk. Aside from that loose end, though, there's hardly a dissatisfying moment to be found in " 'K' Is for Killer," Ms. Grafton's darkest and most haunting book yet."

S Is For Silence Sue Grafton Marin Wood/Putnam / 375 pages It's difficult to think of Sue Grafton without one specific word embedding itself in the brain: endurance. As soon as she published her first alphabetical mystery, in 1982, one could see how arduous a task it might be to continue all the way to the letter Z while keeping each book separate and reasonably fresh. Twenty-three years on the end is a lot closer in sight, but unfortunately it's proving to be more of a limp than a sprint to the finish line.
