Reading Challenges

My Kind of Mystery Reading Challenge 2017 February - January 2017-8


Comments for M is for Malice

M is for MaliceM is for Malice: 11/29/07

When the Nattie Challenge blog announced the "Baby Steps Challenge" of reading three books by the end of the year, I felt ready to tackle a few more of the alphabet series. I'm reading M, N and O for this challenge.

M is for Malice finds Kinsey Millhone tracking down a missing member of the wealthy Malek gravel family when the patriarch dies. Guy Malek left home in 1968 and hasn't been heard from in 18 years.

Unfortunately for Guy and Kinsey, a simple missing person case ends up being a murder investigation of an especially violent nature. Although I enjoyed the book, I figured out who had committed the murder. I did though have to read to the end to learn why the murderer did it.

I should join you on this. My Mom and I had this as our hobby. I honestly can't think of where we left off when she left me behind!"
