Product Description

Review

How enjoyable to settle down with a new book by Sara Paretsky. (Sunday Telegraph)

With the creation of V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky did more than anyone to change the face of contemporary women's fiction. (Express on Sunday)

Warshawski's darkest outing, with no sign that her creator is flagging. Paretsky has written a novel in which a great deal is stripped bare, including Warshawski's innermost anxieties about herself, producing a narrative as gripping as it is emotionally wrenching. (JOAN SMITH, Sunday Times)

Book Description

The second novel in the acclaimed V.I. Warshawski series from one of America's greatest female crime writers.

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!!

Having loaned my copys of this author's works and never getting them back this was great to purchase them secondhand as they are great to re-read. The plots are so fast moving one time is not enough to take in every nuance.

Bought this as personally recommended. Also liked the idea of a female protagonist. Unfortunately found it a little disappointing. Found the characters rather two-dimensional, and also difficult to relate to V I Warshowski. Definitely not a character-driven book, but even the plot flagged at times. I found myself able to predict certain developments - not because I read a lot of thrillers (which I don't) but because it all seemed rather familiar (maybe due to too many hours spent watching US tv series). Will not be buying any more by this author.
