About this deal

Divorced and eager to help solve crimes for the underdog, even if she doesn't go to those cases intentionally, her thorough skills show a mystery where the clues are solved by actual logical work and not just nifty clue falling into her lap like most mysteries do. A slick divorce attorney with a reputation for ruthlessness, Fife was also rumoured to be a slippery ladies’ man. And despite the fact that Kinsey drives around in her '68 VW 'Bug' and has terrible dietary habits (or maybe BECAUSE of those things), I find that I still really like her character.

In this, Kinsey Millhone's first case, she is visited at her office by a woman named Nikki Fife who has just been paroled after serving an 8-year prison sentence for the murder of her divorce attorney-husband Laurence Fife.The book also includes a preface, introductions to the two separate story collections, and a previously published essay on hard-boiled private investigators. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. She then goes to Las Vegas to interview Fife's former secretary, Sharon Napier, who is killed minutes before Kinsey arrives.

The motor oil was real enough but it wasn’t theirs; just some Sears thirty-weight with new labels pasted on. A slick divorce attorney with a reputation for ruthlessness, Fife was also rumoured to be a slippery ladies’ man.Millhone takes the case and begins to track down all of the people who were a part of Fife’s life at the time of the murder. I haven’t learned enough about her character to really give a definitive answer, but she does exhibit signs she might be a praying mantis or a tarantula.
