    Book Description

    Any reader who needs a smart and sassy P.I. would do well to hire Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone. . . . H' is for Homicide continues to show the author in strong storytelling form. . . . [It] finds Kinsey Millhone working on a case involving the death of a claims adjuster for a California insurance company. The story takes her into the Los Angeles barrio in pursuit of a violent criminal, into jails and hospitals, and into a grungy bar named the Meat Locker. . . . Count on Millhone not only to corner the murderer but also to make a statement against the foibles of the insurance game."
    --The New York Times

    "The eighth in Grafton's bestselling series is perhaps the wildest ride yet. . . . Grafton's skill with dialogue, her vivid characterizations and California scenery are priceless. . . . There are moments when the tension becomes so unbearable that you are tempted to skip paragraphs out of self-preservation."
    --USA Today

    "One of the best . . . A vivid, funny portrait of life in an ethnic underworld, viewed without judgment. Suspense there is, plentifully, and a final suggestion that Kinsey will be exploring different mischiefs next time. Outstanding."
    --Los Angeles Times

    Reader Reviews
    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: Not Too Bad-Could Have Been A Little More Interesting, September 25, 2003 Reviewer: Jennifer Kirkman from St. Petersburg, FL United States In this book, Kinsey Millhone plays a cover-up investigator so she can see for herself, this deranged killer who not only kills but commits insurance fraud as well. He is after money and this is how he tags his victims. The story takes Kinsey through bars, hospitals, and all else to try and nail this deranged man to put him away for good. The book is full of violent chases and Kinsey goes to jail at one point for trying to help Bibianna, the victim at the killer's hands. I thought the book was okay, but not the very best.Good enough to stick with it and see what happens.
