Book Review
4 of 5 stars to H is for Homicide, the 8th book in the "Kinsey Millhone" mystery series, written in 1991 by Sue Grafton. Grafton hits another home run in the series with this installment, focusing on the death of one of Kinsey's friends. It kicks off an investigation into insurance fraud claims, where Kinsey goes undercover to determine if a woman tricked Kinsey's friend Paul into the insurance game, ultimately leading to his own death. But Kinsey's in for a shock when she's arrested herself, unable to clear her name as part of the investigation because she's undercover. But this is when she realizes a crime kingpin is working with his girlfriend, and Kinsey doesn't know who to trust. This was a good edition in the series, as it pushed Kinsey out of her comfort zone, showed some emotions and helped us relate to her better. Her skills as a detective grew, especially because she had to lie about her real identify. And the mystery has lots of good twists and turns. Fans of the series will enjoy this one... so far, the series has stayed in good shape and holds up well.
