  • Relevant and riveting!

    private-investigators, chicago, mystery, crime-fiction First, I find it absolutely amazing that V.I. remains totally relevant in spite of the passage of time since the first book came out in 1980! The writing and the story are just as impressive as well. V.I. is as tough as the mean streets of the Chicago neighborhoods and knows how to turn the tables on anyone who challenges her. She started out as a lawyer but has done much more since opting out of that profession. She never shows fear in the face of murderous non-local gangs or unscrupulous redevelopers, and goes wherever she needs to find and protect a missing homeless artist. There is a lot of action at a fast pace, plot twists, red herrings, and exposure of bad politics. I loved it! I won a soft cover copy in a LibraryThing Giveaway! Thanks!

  • So incredibly disappointing...

    I love the V. I. Warshawski series and anxiously awaited each new book. This one was so incredibly disappointing. I kept picking away at it but eventually just had to give up - I couldn't even finish it. I find Bernie Fouchard a caricature of a French Canadian and so unbelievable, especially in this book. Lots of political agenda in this book as well which is disappointing. If I want politics, I can read the news which I most y try to avoid. Overall, a huge disappointment and a huge waste of money. May never waste my time or money on another book in this series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good action book. Plot convoluted.

    Usually Vic gets beat up at least once per book. In this book, she doesn't actually get beat up but does end up bruised and broken just the same. The plot in this books seems a little convoluted. I can't explain what I mean without spoilers, so you'll have to read the book yourself to understand what I mean.

  • Deadland

    Enjoyed this immensely as I have enjoyed all of the Paretsky books. Hard to put down. Moves fast and holds your interest.
