Y Is for Paperback | Good-bye, Sue Grafton

Mystery fans mourning the passing of Sue Grafton, whose Alphabet mysteries opened in 1982 with A Is for Alibi, will always wonder what “Z” might have brought. Grafton’s final offering, Y Is for Yesterday, appeared last August to reviews soaked in nostalgia for the entire series and anticipation of the end. Reading groups and those who have not yet read Yesterday will be pleased to learn that the paperback edition will appear this July (Putnam. ISBN 9780525536703. $16).
