Bestselling Novelist Sue Grafton Dies

Crime novelist Sue Grafton, whose Kinsey Millhone Alphabet series became world-wide bestsellers, has died after a two-year battle with cancer, her daughter said on Friday.  Ms Grafton, 77, died in Santa Barbara on Thursday surrounded by her family, according to a note her daughter, Jamie Clark, posted on the author’s website. Ms Grafton was best known for a series of murder mystery novels that each begin with a different letter of the alphabet. The last was Y is for Yesterday, which was published in August.  Ms Grafton’s novels feature feisty female private investigator Kinsey Millhone who lives in the fictional California town of Santa Teresa. The first, A is for Alibi, was published in 1982. The books have been translated into 26 languages and regularly topped best seller lists in the US.
