"T" is for Trespass by Sue Grafton

Published in 2007. 387 pages.
Twentieth novel in the Alphabet Series (Starring Kinsey Millhone).

I have been a fan of Kinsey Millhone for quite a long time, and I was eager to read "T" is for Trespass. This latest entry in the series did not disappoint!

Kinsey fans know that the books end with a note from the private investigator. I don't think I will giving anything away by quoting the final paragraph as my summary of the novel:

I don't want to think about predators. I know they exist, but I prefer to focus on the best in human nature: compassion, generosity, a willingness to come to the aid of those in need. The sentiment may seem absurd, given our daily ration of news stories detailing thievery, assault, rape, murder, and other treacheries. To the cynics among us, I must sound like an idiot, but I do hold to the good, working wherever possible to separate the wicked from that which profits them. There will always be someone poised to take advantage of the vulnerable: the very young, the very old, and the innocent of any age. Though I know this from long experience, I refuse to feel discouraged. In my own unassuming way, I know I can make a difference. You can as well.
              Respectfully submitted,
              Kinsey Millhone
