R is for Ricochet: Sue Grafton
Comments: Private Investigator Kinsey Millhone is hired to pick-up a wealthy businessman's wayward daughter, Reba, who has just been released from jail and deliver her safely home. Reba is beautiful and intelligent but ultimately unstable and self-destructive. Kinsey sees much of herself in this troubled girl and the pair strike up an unlikely friendship. She soon discovers that Reba has taken a fall for her boss and lover. When Reba learns she has been used, she is determined to take revenge, whatever the cost.
Not Grafton's best book, but very readable. I'm fed up though with the fact that Kinsey has to be physically assaulted near the end of every investigation.
