Sue Grafton regrettably passed away December 28 in Santa Barbara, California after a two-year battle with cancer. She was 77. Her famed mystery series, starring lead protagonist Kinsey Millhone, attracted fans far and wide.
Following her passing, fans flooded her Twitter page with praise and attribution, heaping kind words on the author. Not only her fiction, but her character as well, has left a lasting impression on the literary world.
“She was surrounded by family, including her devoted and adoring husband Steve,” wrote Jamie Clark, Grafton’s daughter on her Facebook page Friday. “Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast.”
Clark concluded her post by saying that “the alphabet now ends at Y,” a reference to Grafton’s murder mystery series, of which each title started with a letter in the alphabet. Grafton’s last title was “Y is for Yesterday.”
