Reviews about J is for Judgment (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries) (7):

What can you say about Sue Grafton other than she is a great mystery writer. Kinsey Milhone is an ex-cop and has her own detective agency and never much of a sex life if that what your looking for, go elsewhere. This is a traditional gumshoe story with action and danger for our heroine. After some spotty success writing books, Grafton changed to writing screenplays for TV and movies. With the success of her first Alphabet series book ' A is for Alibi' in 1982 it has continued to date. I first discovered her books when I came across 'G is for Gumshoe' (pub 1990) in a recycle center in 2000, I proceeded to local bookstores and Amazon to acquire all of this series up until the current at the time 'O is For Outlaw'. It's always great when you come across a great series in progress as it's a joy just reading book after book from a great writer. Much like 'binge watching TV series on Netflix nowadays. Only problem with an ongoing series is waiting for the next book. Grafton has done only a couple of yearly books and mostly every other year since 'P is for Peril' in 2001. It is now up to just plain 'X' in 2015 and will end with 'Z is for Zero'. I'm hoping she has Y & Z completed as she is 75 now and I'm 70 and don't want to miss the conclusion of this great series.

I find some in this series very good; others to be so-so. This is one of the latter. No matter what alphabet letter, I like Kinsey Millhone. As a PI she's very real, not a superwoman. As a person, she's enjoyable.
In "J" she's hired by her former employer, an insurance company to find if a certain man is dead or alive. He's a tricky little sucker, having committed a Ponzi scheme, then vanishes. The company has paid out $500,00 to his wife. Is she really widowed or not? Along the way, we have one of their sons, who is in legal trouble, his ex-partner, a girlfriend, an older ex-cop. Some of the characters are developed, others not.

We also come across a good deal of dialogue involving Kinsey's lost cousin & family matters. All which have nothing to do with the story. I felt this entire section need not be in the book.

The story didn't really have punch for me. The beginning was fine, the middle bogged down to the point wherein I almost did not finish this one. The ending was fine & leaves the reader wondering, which can be fun. The character of Ms. Millhone helped this book to survive till the end more than the story

One of her best in the alphabet series!

I love the politically incorrect lady PI in this book. She is tough and she gets the job done. She is somewhat dysfunctional, which makes her all the more believable and likeable. After reading this series, I got my mother hooked on the series.

After my mother read all the "Kinsey Millhone" stories, she discovered the Joe Gunther Mystery Series, which she loved. The first book is: Open Season (Joe Gunther Mysteries)

If you are looking for exciting adventure books for kids / teenagers, my mother recommends Jake Johnson And The Half Bloods (Quest 1) (Jake Johnson And The Greek Gods) and its sequel Jake Johnson And The God Of War (Quest 2) (Jake Johnson And The Greek Gods).

All of Sue Grafton books put Kinsey without a gun. This one shows her getting a gun at least when she needed it.
She kills when necessary but to be a detective and have an aversion to guns seems weird to me. Is she just cheap or is it her mode of dress?
Andromathris
Bizarre story but worth it to get a glimpse of unfinished familial business on Kinsey. You can never go wrong with these books. I will be said to see the series end,but you can always go back and re read them!
Stonewing
Good book in this artful series of A-X with Z probably on its way. The J book was a little predictable. I am presently reading the K is for Killer book and it is making up for all that somehow was lacking in the J is for Judgement book. All in all I believe all of the books are well worth the time and I recommend everyone to complete the series.....also one after another works fine and in fact keeps the context flowing.

I enjoyed the story, and Kinsey comes through as usual. The ending was a little disappointing, perhaps a bit of a sell-out, and it paled in comparison to this new revelation in her life: She has cousins! Suddenly her identity as an independent, lone wolf becomes precarious. It seems that Kinsey-being-Kinsey is what has made her so good, and I am curious about Ms. Grafton's plan for the future. As good as this author is, and as much as she cares about Kinsey, I doubt this new revelation is simply incidental.
I enjoyed this book, and i am enjoying catching up with the series. The plot has sensible twists without being predictable, and the characters are interesting. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
