I always enjoy a Kinsey Millhone story and this one had a couple of neat twists in its 'tale'!
Kinsey has to baby sit a spoilt brat, Reba Lafferty, whose rich and doting father couldn't keep her out of prison. She was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institution for Women. Now she's released and Kinsey has to keep her away from trouble or she'll be back in prison.
It should be simple, if only Reba was genuinely contrite and determined to be a good girl and follow all the rules of her parole. Alas, poor Kinsey soon finds out there's real mayhem afoot.
Another well written and enjoyable story in the series.
