H is For Homicide. Finished audio 8-12-20, 3/5 stars, mystery, pub. 1991
It started with the murder of Kinsey Millhone’s sometime drinking buddy, an insurance claims adjuster. But before long Kinsey stumbles onto a massive insurance scam. Going undercover as a wisecracking vamp, Millhone descends into the Los Angeles nether world of machismo and gang hideouts. Her companion, terrified at having crossed the violent crook Raymond Maldonado, is Bibianna Diaz — no Girl Scout herself. from Goodreads
I love Kinsey and this one was okay, but she did seem to reach beyond her talents by going undercover, inadvertently really, for the police. I was worried for her, but also questioned why she didn’t just walk away from a very dangerous situation. I really like this series, even though some of it feels dated. Kinsey is ahead of her time so she remains just right for any time period.
