Sue Grafton: U is for Undertow

Author Sue Grafton is doing a simple meet-and-greet during her visit to Murder by the Book (no reading or discussion). But chances are fans of the A-B-C mystery series featuring Kinsey Millhone will be happy enough with a handshake and an autograph from their favorite storyteller. Grafton is at the 21st letter in the alphabet with her latest novel, U is for Undertow. The story of a 27-year-old man who asks Millhone to help him unravel the disappearance of a four-year-old girl two decades earlier, Undertow is another thrilling installment in a series that has yet to disappoint. 6:30 p.m. 2342 Bissonnet.
