Like another reviewer whose comments I read, I sense that Paretsky has moved away from simply writing good mysteries and has started using the books as a platform for her politics. I don't really care if it's liberal or conservative, it's starting to get old. The first few books were great, but now it seems like EVERY book is closely tied to politically-motivated crime. I didn't finish this one, and probably won't read any others in the series. That's a shame - the series started so well.
Another great read by this author. I felt sorry for this young boy in the story.
Another great and exciting VI Warshawski book. Not only is Paretsky a terrific writer, but she has expanded her themes to include historical and modern political injustice. I have to admit that there were points when I had trouble following the tangled web of the story, so I just sat back and went along for the ride, which was exciting, wild, and fulfilling as always.
