Mystery writer Sue Grafton has died in Santa Barbara, California. She was 77.

Her daughter, Jamie Clark, posted news of her mother's death on Grafton's web page Friday.

She says her mother passed away Thursday night after a two-year battle with cancer and was surrounded by family, including Grafton's husband, Steve.

Grafton was the author of the so-called Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Series in which each book title begins with a letter from the alphabet. The last was "Y is for Yesterday."

Her daughter concluded her posting by saying, "the alphabet now ends at Y."

I haven't read any of Donna Leon's Brunetti series, but I thought of them when I watched these livecams of Venice.


Rialto Bridge, Venice It. LiveCam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPbQcM4k1Ys

Grand Canal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiiNSrDuECw

Here is one of St. Mark's too. I think that landmark featured in the stories. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9qjE1dm75A

Too bad I didn't think to check these out when I was reading the series. Not sure why I stopped.
