Format: Paperback
This book is VI Warshawski doing what she does best, getting in way over her head and loving every minute of it. She's smart, sassy, innovative and like a dog with a bone she just won't let go. When her cousin Boom Boom falls to his death at the docks where he works VI just can't accept that it was an 'accident' as the police would have her believe. No sooner does she start digging a little deeper into the business dealings of the shipping company for whom Boom Boom worked does she get results. As she moves ever closer towards the reason why her cousin ended up at the bottom of Lake Michigan, she finds herself face to face with a dead body in Boom Boom's apartment and then almost winds up dead when her car is tampered with. Someone doesn't want her getting any closer to the reason behind his death, but who? As the story unfolds we learn more about the people in Boom Boom's life and the action is non stop, VI is our tour guide and she does not fail to deliver.
Reading about VI so enjoyable because she is such a determined, capable but essentially flawed character. Along with all the action we are allowed to peek into VI's unconventional lifestyle and her chequered past. She is a herioc, albeit gun toting, female detective of whom I look forward to reading more about in the future.

I love Sara Paretskys books. I read them in a couple of days so it makes sense to buy them used if possible. This is an excellent way to get the books you like for a reasonable price. I stock up with them for holidays. I also like that you can choose the condition of the books, so you know roughly what to expect. I intend to go for as good a condition as possible and haven't been disappointed yet! However, if it is a book I really want and it is in short supply, any condition will do!!

Ok number 2 down ... on to number 3.
What to say about the book that hasn't been said in other reviews ...A good read. A bit clunky in places especially if you don't recognise (American) fashion brands ..... It gets a little far fetched around the action scenes at times but the quality of the writing is such that I stayed involved with the story to the last page
