LOUISVILLE, Ky. - "B'' is most definitely for burglar.
Bestselling mystery writer Sue Grafton, famous for her series known as the "ABC mysteries," tells WHAS-TV that her Louisville home is one of several in her neighborhood that was burglarized.
Grafton, a Louisville native, says she went to put away some pieces of silver recently and noticed her set of forks, knives and miscellaneous serving pieces was missing.
Police say there's been a string of burglaries in the area during the past several weeks. They say the burglars are cutting glass to get into houses through the windows.
"We didn't even know they had been here and we were sleeping right upstairs," Grafton told the station.
"B is for Burglar" is the title of the second novel in the "ABC" series, also known as the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mysteries.
