Y IS FOR YESTERDAY  by Sue Grafton
Grafton reaches back into Kinsey’s past for this thriller so you know she will survive.  Two concurrent plots make up the story line.  Ned, a serial killer who wants Kinsey dead, is one, the other is the 10 year old death of a popular teen whose murder was solved – or was it?  The book bounces from one plot to the other, so for me the momentum was lost.  But I like Grafton’s heroine, so that was okay. 
Grafton shows that although the end of the series and the end of alphabet approach, there are still stories and plots to tell.  She has lost none of her story telling skill and the plots are still intriguing. So for Kinsey fans this one is win, win. 
What will be the “Z” title????? And how will the series conclude? Are the only questions remaining.

5 of 5 stars for longevity and continuing deft plotting
