Sue Grafton's "H" is For Homicide is a thrilling adventure right from the get-go. The tale begins on a dark drive home at three in the morning. Kinsey Millhone had just finished one of her cases and was looking for a quiet weekend at home. Unfortunately she should have stayed at the hotel but her longing for home brought her back to Santa Teresa. Upon arrival, Kinsey finds her friend and co-worker, Parnell Perkins, dead in front of their work, California Fidelity. Besides trying to get on with her life, Kinsey is asked to check out an insurance claim that raises to the surface and smells like fraud. Bibianna Diaz was the one responsible for the claim. After tracking her down, Kinsey begins to gain Bibianna's trust as a possible buyer for her home. Unfortunately though Bibianna is running from someone worse than the police. She left her fiancé Raymond Maldonado, who doesn't like to be crossed. Raymond being the hostile, mob boss and head of the whole insurance fraud scandal has the inability to take no for an answer. Soon Kinsey finds herself in the middle of the problem when Bibianna is kidnapped and Kinsey comes along for the ride. Now Kinsey needs to find a way out and uncover Raymond's insurance scam without getting caught in the middle of Bibianna and Raymond's own love- hate war and before her true identity is discovered. This is a good book for those who like adventure and know how hard it can be in the middle of a love-hate relationship. Like every love affair this book has some complications that can lead you off into many different directions which may be confusing but in the end they all string together in the final chapter. If you want high pace excitement and thrills of high rolling stakes, this is the book for you.

When private investigator Kinsey Millhone returns home after doing a consumer investigation, she is saddened to learn that one of her friends from California Fidelity Insurance has been killed. Kinsey has office space in the C.F. building and the dead man was an employee there. In the meantime, she is checking on insurance fraud cases, and suddenly the murder and her investigation begin to merge. What follows is a book-long wild ride into the underworld in the company of a young hustler named Bibianna Diaz. She spends an evening in a bar named the Meat Locker and things get only worse after that. Kinsey's and Bibianna's lives are threatened as the facts of the insurance fraud becomes clear. This is another good read in a dependable series.

Someone once told me that Sue Grafton's book were for women only. Well, he could not have been any more wrong. The Alphabet series is a wonderful series of books and I have read A through H at this point and will continue until I get to the end.

This time, Kinsey gets involved in investigating claims to an insurance company that seem fraudulent and she ends up infiltrating an insurance fraud gang as a result. It is Kinsey Millhone and Sue Grafton at their best. Don't Miss it! I loved it.

Thoroughly enjoyable reading. This was a good story, though not much of a mystery per se. There was one big surprise at the end which I never expected. Grafton's descriptive talents are best put to use in this book ... you can really taste and feel Kinsey's surroundings and the danger she is in. Good summer reading.

If you have started the alphabet series, make sure you continue it! This is typical Grafton work with Kinsey getting personally affected by false insurance claims.
