Had Windy City Blues been the first V.I. Warshawski volume I'd read, I may have been disappointed. As it was, the characters were familiar, and I enjoyed the new format (even though I hope Ms. Paretsky sticks to V.I. novels in the future). The author owes her readers nothing, and is entitled to experiment with her popular character. If this is the first time you've read a V.I. Warshawski mystery, by all means, read the others!

Note that this is the same book as "V.I. for Short2. Don't buy both as I just did.

The only clue on the front cover of this book that it is
not a V.I. Warshwski novel is a single line reading
"V.I. Warshawski Stories." Discovering that I'd paid $7.00
for short stories rather than a novel was a disappointment,
and as I started the book, I discovered that the publisher
had double spaced the text to make it appear that
this was a normal length book. However, the biggest
disappointments were the stories themselves.

In the story entitled "The Pietro Andromache," the author
stoops to gathering all of the suspects together in a room
and cleverly solving the mystery! Adult characters in this
awful story actually utter the lines "Yowie! Zowie! Powie!"
and "Pooper snooper, pooper snooper." This is one of the
most inane stories I've read in years!

I have been a fan of this author for a long time, and
have read all of the previous books in this series. This
time I feel ripped off. I will probably not buy more books
by this author.

Love this so much. If you don't know V.I you should, she is a gem.

A compelling read, as usual. Left me keen for more.
