H is for Homicide (Kinsey Millhone #8)

H is for Homicide (Kinsey Millhone, #8)H is for Homicide by Sue Grafton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Rereading the next letter in Grafton's alphabet series, Kinsey finds herself with a new case--looking into insurance fraud--and goes undercover to find the truth. This one was fast-paced and had little of the characters we have come to love: no Henry, Rosie, with limited Vera and Con Doyle. Step back into the eighties where we wore mini-skirts, ratted our hair, and didn't run around with cell phones and internet. It adds a layer of complexity to her investigations that we wouldn't find with our technologically-advanced PIs of today.

Kinsey's always fun to read, and "H" doesn't disappoint, but doesn't necessarily delight, either. Having read them when they were new releases, though, they have stood the test of time for me. Still one of my favorite detective series.
