X By Sue Grafton, Putnam $28.95

As Sue Grafton nears the end of the alphabet, unable to find an appropriate title beginning with the letter X, she simply gives several characters names beginning with X such as a priest, Father Xavier and a married couple with the last name, Xanakis. There are, as usual, several situations vying for her ace sleuth Kinsey Millhone’s attention, beginning with a call from the wife of a former detective friend who’s being harassed with calls from the IRS. Then, just next door, her neighbor and landlord, Henry, is being taken advantage of by his neighbors on the other side, elderly and seemingly unable to care for themselves. A call from a woman searching for the son she gave up at birth and who has just been released from prison opens a large can of worms. Kinsey usually finds herself in mortal danger, but it didn’t come to almost the book’s end. Of course, she survived. There are two letters yet to go.
