One of the most frightening forms of evil is that which preys on the defenseless. Such is the premise of Sue Grafton’s newest book, T is for Trespass. A chilling read even for those who aren’t established fans of the series, the story centers on Solana Rojas, a home health care worker who victimizes those she is hired to protect. Private detective Kinsey Millhone suspects the woman is not who she seems to be, uncovering a frightening pattern of abuse and identity theft. The narrative is divided, deftly twisting between the perspectives of hero and villain, which effectively heightens the suspense in what Publisher’s Weekly names “one of the series’ high points”.
Grafton’s books are easily enjoyed individually for their self-contained stories. Those interested in earlier installments will appreciate S is for Silence, Kinsey’s previous adventure, and A is for Alibi, her first case.
