Someone knocking on the door at 3 A.M. is never good news. For V.I. Warshawski, the bad news arrives in the form of her wacky, unwelcome aunt Elena. The fire that has just burned down a sleazy SRO hotel has brought Elena to V.I.'s doorstep. Uncovering an arsonist - and the secrets hidden behind Elena's boozy smile - will send V.I. into the seedy world of Chicago's homeless...into the Windy City's backroom deals and bedroom politics, where new schemers and old cronies team up to get VV.I. off the case - by hook, by crook, or by homicide.

This is the first I've read of this author. The private eye Victoria Warshawski is very convincing character as she investigates the arson of an SRO where her aut Elena was living.

I enjoyed this book in the series by Sara Paretsky about her detective in Chicago, VI Warshawski. You might remember a movie made in the late 80s featuring this character. Don't let that stop you from reading the books which of course are so much better than any movie. Good character development, realistic cases to solve and a female protagonist who sometimes doesn't learn from her mistakes.

From the book cover: "Someone knocking on the door at 3 A.M. is never good news. For V.I. Warshawski, the bad news arrives in the form of her wacky, unwelcome Aunt Elena. The fire that has just burned down a sleazy SRO hotel has brought Elena to V.I.'s doorstep. Uncovering an arsonist - and the secrets hidden behind Elena's boozy smile - will send V.I. into the seedy world of Chicago's homeless ... into the Windy City's backroom deals and bedroom politics, where new schemers and old cronies team up to get V.I. off the case - be hook, by crook, or by homicide." A good, fast-paced read. Is there a more stubborn fictional female detective out there? W.I.'s got guts!
