Raymond is a really great horrible criminal. So far in the series, he is the top evil person in Kinsey's world. Reading what will he do next is the best thing about H. The only quibble is I can't believe he's a heroin addict instead of speed or meth. Another way this one is unusual is Kinsey is undercover and forced into submission to others throughout most of the book; however, she manages to maintain her dignity and professionalism. Her character is more in focus in this one, and you learn how wily and weirdly into violence and mayhem she is. She reacted to Raymond's wildness with distress, but often the kind of behaviors she herself indulges in makes you wonder if the only difference between her and the perps is that she loves law and order and the innocent, while the criminals do not. When it comes to saving people, she puts all of her fears aside and plunges in. Anything goes in the pursuit of justice. Not that I don't admire her a great deal or wish to born in my next life to be like her exactly. Just saying.

Tym Raymond really was the best character that Ms. Grafton created in this series, at least in my opinion.
