Excerpt from Sue Grafton’s X

Nanowrimo is coming up! I’ll be starting on a new book in the Between the Cracks series on November 1.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am reading Sue Grafton’s X, book 24 of the Kinsey Millhone series. I was sorry to hear of Sue Grafton’s passing last year and that she wasn’t able to finish the series. Kinsey Millhone is a fun PI and I have always enjoyed reading the series.

As for the banker’s box, I’d put a big black X not he lid and shoved it under the desk in my studio apartment, so the task would have to wait unit I got home.
Sue Grafton, X

X:  The number ten. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss…

Perhaps Sue Grafton’s darkest and most chilling novel, X features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this deadly sociopath. The test is whether private investigator Kinsey Millhone can prove her case against him—before she becomes his next victim.

Tell me what you think!
