V. I. Warshawski is a tough yet caring detective, willing to do anything it takes to solve the case. I've read all the Warshawski novels, and I thought this was one of the best.

I enjoy V.I., her saviness, her persistance and her descriptions of the world around her. In this addition, she struggles to solve a murder that the police aren't convinced was a murder. It leads her down a historical path of the 1930s Federal Negro Theater Project and the McCarthy era blacklisting. The mystery remains mostly unsolvable until the very end. While I enjoy Paretsky's novels, this one felt like a forum to express her politics.

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.
