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) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The feisty, tough and shrewd heroine appears in her third adventure in the V.I. Warshawski series, from one of America's greatest female crime writers. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This was a very good read, I just could not put the story down.. I always enjoy the V.I. tales and this was a good as all the rest of the books, fast action, a real female hero who can deal with the bad guys the way I would like to be able to. A really good read. I do hope there are some of her books that I have not read yet because she really keeps up her very high standard.

Working my through the cannon ... another worth reading book... even if the entire plot is outside my experience as a non-catholic non-Chicago resident Sara Paretsky managed to engage my interest from beginning to the end.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Sol on 4 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
V.I gets called in by her aunt (on her mother's side#, who wants her to clear her name from the suspicion of stealing from her workplace, a cloister, by swapping stock worth millions with fake ones.
V.I., at her best when driven by feelings of obligation and guilt - to family or friends who make demands on her loyalty, refuses to let go of the case even when Aunt Rosa tells her to back down.
Why does Rosa hate her mother - and thereby V.I. herself - so much? Why did Rosa suddenly change her mind about the case? Did someone pressure her #anyone who can pressure Rosa to do anything must have some powerful bargaining cards...)
And does the murder of an old friend of V.I. have anything to do with the case? The friend's grieving parents put additional pressure on V.I's fine-tuned sense of guilt.
And oh - Lotty's charming uncle Stefan shows up. And gets hurt. More guilt for V.I, more anger from Lotty, as V.I. unravels family secrets both her own and others.

Well plotted and kept me turning the pages. The plot would have seemed highly unlikely not so many years ago, but is remarkably perceptive and (sadly) doesn't seem at all far fetched today.

Just a great book... The plot, the characters and even the background are very well put together and most enjoyable... Will now search for a follow up book by same author!

Not quite as good as her usual books (in my opinion)
I am usually rivetted by her heroine's actions and motivations but just couldn't get into this one.
