u003cpu003eReaders of Sue Grafton's fiction know she never writes the same book twice, and u003ciu003e"I" Is For Innocentu003c/iu003e is no exception. Her most intricately plotted novel to date, it is layered in enough complexity to baffle even the cleverest among us.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eLonnie Kingman is in a bind. He's smack in the middle of assembling a civil suit, and the private investigator who was doing his pretrial legwork has just dropped dead of a heart attack. In a matter of weeks the court's statute of limitations will put paid to his case. Five years ago David Barney walked when a jury acquitted him of the murder of his rich wife, Isabelle. Now Kingman, acting as attorney for the dead woman's ex-husband and their child (and sure that the jury made a serious mistake), is trying to divest David Barney of the profits of that murder. But time is running out, and David Barney still swears he's innocent.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003ePatterned along the lines of a legal case, u003ciu003e"I" Is For Innocentu003c/iu003e is seamlessly divided into thirds: one-third of the novel is devoted to the prosecution, one-third to the defense, and a final third to cross-examination and rebuttal. The result is a trial novel without a trial and a crime novel that resists solution right to the end.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eWhen Kinsey Millhone agrees to take over Morley Shine's investigation, she thinks it is a simple matter of tying up the loose ends. Morley might have been careless about his health, but he was an old pro at the business. So it comes as a real shock when she finds his files in disarray, his key informant less than credible, and his witnesses denying ever having spoken with him. It comes as a bigger shock when she finds that every claim David Barney has made checks out. But if Barney didn't murder his wife, who did? It would seem the list of candidates is a long one. In life, Isabelle Barney had stepped on a lot of toes.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eIn u003ciu003e"I" Is For Innocentu003c/iu003e, Sue Grafton once again demonstrates her mastery of those telling details that reveal our most intimate and conflicted relationships. As Kinsey comments on the give-and-take by which we humans deal with each other, for better and sometimes for worse, the reader is struck yet again by how acute a social observer Ms. Grafton can be. Frequently funny and sometimes caustic, she is also surprisingly compassionate-- understanding how little in life is purely black and white. Except for murder.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eSomewhere out there, a killer waits to see just what Kinsey will find out. Somewhere out there, someone's been getting away with murder, and this time it just might turn out to be Kinsey's.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eu003ciu003e"I" Is For Innocentu003c/iu003e is Sue Grafton in peak form. Fast-paced. Funny. And very, very devious.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003e"A" Is for Alibiu003cbru003e"B" Is for Burglaru003cbru003e"C" Is for Corpseu003cbru003e"D" Is for Deadbeatu003cbru003e"E" Is for Evidenceu003cbru003e"F" Is for Fugitiveu003cbru003e"G" Is for Gumshoeu003cbru003e"H" Is for Homicideu003cbru003e"I" Is for Innocentu003cbru003e"J" Is for Judgmentu003cbru003e"K" Is for Killeru003cbru003e"L" is for Lawlessu003cbru003e"M" Is for Maliceu003cbru003e"N" Is for Nooseu003cbru003e"O" Is for Outlawu003cbru003e"P" Is for Peril u003cbru003e"Q" Is for Quarryu003cbru003e"R" Is for Ricochet u003cbru003e"S" Is for Silence u003cbru003e"T" Is for Trespassu003cbru003e"U" Is for Undertow u003cbru003e"V" Is for Vengeance u003cbru003e"W" Is for Wasted u003cbru003e"X"u003c/pu003e
