Inhaltsangabe: A Kinsey Millhone mystery. . .
She was a "Jane Doe," an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff's Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were mulitple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the case remained unsolved.
That was eighteen years ago. Now, the two men who found the body, both nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement, want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to do the legwork for them, and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. They will, they tell her, find closure if they can just identify the victim. Kinsey is intrigued by the challenge and agrees to work with them.
But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what beings with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.
Rezension: Based on a homicide that took place in 1969 and was never solved, Sue Grafton has produced another of her long list of 'alphabet' crime novels featuring Kinsey Millhone, private eye. An unidentified young white woman's body is discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1. Eighteen years have passed since the original investigation and the two men who found the body are now approaching retirement, and want one last try at solving the case. They call in Kinsey, whose career is going through a lean patch. It makes an exciting and suspense-filled story with the added thought that this could spark off a solution to a real crime. In the final pages is a photograph of a facial reconstruction of a young woman, which is hoped may lead to her being identified.
