The novel follows Warshawski through her investigations, but the pace is slow, the incedents dull and few. Her portrayal of many of the events seem unreal and as a reader you feel distant from them.

This review is from: Bitter Medicine (Hardcover)

5.0 out of 5 stars Go girl!, 24 Sep 2011
These detective stories set in Chicago are engrossing. Ok, so I don't now anything about Chicago and the main character doesn't even have a mobile phone - these books predate the cell and other techno stuff - but the plots are good, the characters engaging and the language vibrant. I'm working my way through them all.

The pace is kept similar all the way through without changing pace even at the threatening events. We get a sence of her proud self and strength, but less of her feelings and emotions, which makes for a less than intriguing novel.
