book was a little slow to get going, but once it did, it was non stop! I esp. love how she wrote a scene where a ship blew up as she was on it. Great writting.

I'd seen Paretsky's titles on the shelves for some time, but had not read any of her novels. That changed about five pages into DEADLOCK. A murder victim with the unlikely name Boom-Boom has met an untimely death---untimely, but convenient for a number of people. Odd and colorful characters abound, and they behave in all too human fashion.
Now I've made a list of the other V.I. Warshawski titles, and I plan to read them all.

From back cover: When Chicago Black Hawks hockey legend Boom Boom Warshawski slips off a wharf and drowns in Lake Michigan, his private-eye cousin questions the accidental death report and rumors of suicide. Armed with a bottle of Black Label and a Smith and Wesson, V.I. follows a trail of violence and corruption to the center of the Windy City's powerful shipping industry. Dodging elaborate attempts on her life with characteristic grit and humor, the one-of-a-kind detective wends her way through a maze of grain elevators and thousand-ton freighters, ruthless businessmen and gorgeous ballerinas to ferret out Boom Boom's killers... before they phase her out of the picture---permanently.

This is the first book I've read by this author. Since I'm a native of Chicago the streets the author mentioned in the book were familiar. So I enjoyed the book in that aspect. The story was different with a few characters to keep track of. I will read more books by this author.

Can't comment...I'm not a Warshawski fan. If you are and haven't read this one, you already know what to expect.
