Well, it depends on how you define "central to the series," I suppose. Both Lisa Holtzman (or whatever he name was--Scudder's ex-mistress) and Jim Faber, his AA sponsor, died violent deaths in that book. While Lisa wasn't an important character at that point in the series, there were certainly novels in which her presence was "central." And I'd argue that Jim Faber was probably the most important recurring character in the series besides the four you listed.
