Hired to assist the police in a cold case investigation, Kinsey must first figure out who the Jane Doe was. She works with a couple of cops looking to retire, both of them with health problems, leaving her babysitting while trying to gather whatever clues she can.
As usual her plot elements are strong. Grafton has put together a great storyline based on an actual murder involving a yet to be identified Jane Doe. I did find that her characters were a little bit weak and the clues just came a little bit too easily. The ending was pretty good, as I only saw part of it coming. I did like the fact that it was based on an actual murder and yet she did not try to do a non-fiction work, as I find non-fiction investigations a little tedious at times.
I would recommend this novel to mystery fans and Sue Grafton fans.
