H Is for Homicide (Kinsey Millhone Series #8) by Sue Grafton

"THE LADY CAN WRITE . . .

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

I just started reading the Kinsey Millhone series last year and am really enjoying them. There's humor in with the mystery and it's interesting to see the progression of time - in the first books she's using a typewriter and there are no cell phones. They are easy, fun reads.

Although not my most favorite Kinsey Millhone book, this harrowing story does not disappoint fans of the series. A good read and definitely recommended.

Highly recommend this series. Fast paced and entertaining. Another great story by one of my favorite authors. Recommend you read this series starting with A is for Alibi and working your way through the alphabet.

Would give this five stars but the author has a knack for not tying up loose ends in her epilogue, having the reader wonder what happened to other important characters that won't be seen in future books, left up in the air. Denouement not good.

after i read the first book in this series i felt a connection to the character and i wanted to know more about her. as i continued through the series i have experienced love and lust and heartache with new loves, old loves, friendships and foes. I look forward to reading the rest of the series but when it ends I will miss my friend Kinsey.

I absolutely love reading about Kinsey Milhone! Sue Grafton does a wonderful job with Kinsey's character. I have read all the books so far from A to H and I absolutely loved "H is for Homicide! I cannot wait to read the next book.
