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.
