{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} "A" Is for Alibi is crime writer Sue Grafton's debut mystery novel in the Kinsey Millhone "Alphabet mystery" series, first published in 1982.<ref name="aas940513"/> The novel is set in the fictional southern California city of Santa Teresa, based on Santa Barbara. Grafton admits she conceived the story on her own "fantasies" of murdering her then husband while going through a divorce.<ref name="sbi080701"/> The choice of murder by substituting the contents of an antihistamine tablet with crushed oleander meant that an alibi held no value because the contents of the tablet could have been switched a considerable time earlier than the victim actually swallowed the tablet.

The first printing of "A" Is for Alibi was 7,500 copies,<ref name="kcs920511"/> with sales of about 6,000.
