Of number-one New York Times best-selling author Sue Grafton, NPR's Maureen Corrigan said, "Makes me wish there were more than 26 letters." With only two letters left, Grafton's many devoted listeners will share that sentiment.
X: the number 10. An unknown quantity. A mistake. A cross. A kiss.
X: the shortest entry in Webster's Unabridged. Derived from Greek and Latin and commonly found in science, medicine, and religion. The most graphically dramatic letter. Notoriously tricky to pronounce: Think xylophone.
X: the 24th letter in the English alphabet.
Sue Grafton's X: Perhaps her darkest and most chilling novel, it features a remorseless serial killer who leaves no trace of his crimes. Once again breaking the rules and establishing new paths, Grafton wastes little time identifying this sociopath. The test is whether Kinsey can prove her case against him before she becomes his next victim.

I Must Be Missing Something........
I found it pretty much a non-story. There were kind of three threads all at the same time - but the two main ones had non of the usual investigative detail this series usually has. All of the ideas were great - i just found them lacking.
Nothing particularly stands out.
Nope - but nothing to do with this book - I never go and see a film if I have read the book. I find that the films are always disappointing. I guess that when reading you form your own idea of how things look etc but then when you see the film things are nothing like you imagined. Details are always missed out or the focus is on another character as you are viewing someone elses vison of the book not your own.
Love most of the Sue Grafton Kinsey series - I just felt that this one was written to fill a contractual obligation rather than with heart. It certainly won't stop me reading her next book :-)
