Sue Grafton, RIP -- December 30, 2017

I was sad to learn that Sue Grafton has died.  We were at Bay Books in Half Moon Bay many years ago and the owner recommended the first book of a new series, A is for Alibi.  I bought it for my wife.  We wondered what would happen when the author got Z.  I suggested AA is for Aardvark.  I bought her each volume as Grafton published it.  This year I bought my wife Y is for Yesterday.  Grafton did not finish Z is for Zero.

Grafton refused to sell film and television rights, and told her kids, and I presume her husband, that she would haunt them if they sold the rights after she died.
