It's no surprise that Grafton has taken on new territory in her 16th book of the alphabet series, this time entering the world of noir. It's a world cast in shades of black amid shafts of steel and silver, a shadow land in which the disappearance of a prominent physician leads Kinsey Millhone into a danger-filled maze of duplicity as she taps into a cunning Medicare fraud.

BOTTOM-LINE:
Decent mystery, too much other noise.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Kinsey is hired for a missing persons case, a retired family doctor, running a nursing home.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
The mystery opens with a nice quirk -- it's the ex-wife who hires Kinsey, not the current wife. Like all Kinsey's cases, it gets complicated really fast -- cheating wives, messy divorced families, a search for new office space, Medicare fraud, kids who murdered their parents, etc.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The sub-story about kids murdering their parents and the convenience of some evidence that comes to her from Henry by coincidence really detracts from the story.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

Excellent book - except I borrowed the Kindle version and I noticed there was no Epilogue, as in her other books. Edited out on the eBook version or was there none in this (print) book, either? There were a few loose "strings".

What happened to chapters 22, 23 and 24?????! I got all the way to the last 3 chapters and could not read how it turned out as only the first page of each of the last three chapters would show

Enjoyed the plot and the "twists" at the end.
