I really like V.I. she always seems to be able to get herself into and out of trouble. I can see how this book would be a good start for other women slueths and women writers as well. It must be the gut feelings they always seem to have.

Chicago PI V.I. Warshowski gets involved in medical malpractice, murder and conspiracy--as usual! There is a little romance mixed in, and it's a great novel--one you'll enjoy listening to.

This was probably the best V.I. Warshawski book that I have read. She falls in love with a doctor but she soon starts to think he may have been the reason for the death of a young soon-to-be mother. She has to go through a lot of emotional defeats with her friends before she finds out if she can trust her doctor or not.

Early writing from this author. Books are much more enjoyable when the author can refrain from sharing their political views however.

Paretsky at her best. Love the twists and turns, though I could definitely see one of them coming with the romance. I also enjoyed meeting one of the long running characters for the first time.

This is the fourth in the series about VI Warshawski, a tough Chicago based female detective. She has baggage of her own, growing up with a father who was a cop, and losing her beloved mother too soon. VI is a brash, assertive detective.

From the book cover:
"Private eye V.I. Warshawski has reluctantly agreed to drive her young friend Consuelo Alvarado, sixteen and pregnant, and Consuelo's punk husband, Fabiano, to a job interview. Withough the escort, Fabiano probably wouldn't go.
Then Consuelo goes into premature labor and V.I. must rush her to a nearby hospital. Consuelo and her baby do not survive. V.I. observed how slowly the emergency room staff went to Consuelo's aid. Is it malpractice?
The question has no sooner occurred to her than she learns that Consuelo's doctor has been brutally murdered. So V.I. finds herself on an investigation that will leave her with her apartment ransacked, her face slashed, and her sympathies pulled in too many directions. At least her shrewd instincts are still intact."
Good, fast-paced read.

The plot is fast moving. The dialogue snappy, the premise for murder persuasive. The novel hasn't a single snag.

Another superior detective novel from Sara Paretsky. V. I., doing what she does best, lets nothing stop her quest for truth.
