"Of #1 New York Times-bestselling author Sue Grafton, NPR's Maureen Corrigan said, "Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters." With only two letters left, Grafton's many devoted readers will share that sentiment. X: The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss. X: The shortest entry in Webster's Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: think xylophone. X: The twenty-fourth letter in the English alphabet. Sue Grafton's X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes.

Been holding off on reading X and Y since that will be the end of Kinsey. Finally decided it was time.
Enjoyable read, but a lot going on in this book , and for me, a bit too much at times. Still a good read I've got one left :( ( )

Too many story lines. It took a while to get it read. KIRKUS REVIEWWhat does X stand for? Xanakis, XLNT, maybe even Father Xavier, all features of Kinsey Millhone?s dense, meaty 24th case.The drought of 1989 is causing anxiety all over Santa Teresa, but money seems to have rained down on Kinsey?s latest client, Hallie Bettancourt, who?s seeking the current whereabouts of just-released robber Christian Satterfield, the son she had when she was only 15. Kinsey makes a few calls, rings a few bells, tracks down the address, and sends it on to the client, only to discover that everything Hallie told her, from her name to her relationship with Satterfield, was false. To add insult to injury, one of the $100 bills Hallie, or whoever she was, insisted on paying Kinsey is one of the same bills wealthy Ari Xanakis used two years ago to ransom a Turner painting back for $25,000 from his ex-wife, Teddy, who?d taken it upon herself to add it to the divorce settlement. Meanwhile, Kinsey?s gotten involved in another equally messy case, driven by her unwelcome suspicion that her late colleague Pete Wolinskyhired years ago by salesman Ned Lowe?s attorney, Arnold Ruffner, to dig up dirt that would impeach the testimony of Taryn Sizemore, who?d accused him of harassment and stalking¥had cast his net further and decided to blackmail either Lowe or someone else connected with the case. Showing as much initiative as Hallie or Pete and a lot more rectitude, Kinsey resolves to close the book on Pete?s shadowy game and to return a pair of sentimental religious keepsakes she?d found hidden in Pete?s files to their rightful owner. A droll drought-driven subplot revolving around Henry Pitts, Kinsey?s ancient landlord, is the icing on the cake.Grafton?s endless resourcefulness in varying her pitches in this landmark series (W Is for Wasted, 2013, etc.), graced by her trademark self-deprecating humor, is one of the seven wonders of the genre.

(2015) The only thread of this book that I truly enjoyed was Kinsey? landlord Henry's battle with his neighbors who have been stealing his water during the drought. They discover that they are criminals who have been squatting and refuse to leave. Kinsey does discover that there are outstanding warrants and they had skipped bail on an earlier arrest. Problem solved. KIRKUS REVIEWWhat does X stand for?

Other than a minor issue with the ending this was very, very satisfying. ( )
