This Sara Paretsky book is a good beginning for what has become an awesome series. I hate to give up my copies of them but it is time to make room on my book shelves. Indemnity Only is the second of the VI Warshawski detective series and takes place during one of those sizzling humid Chicago summers. The heat isn't the only trouble VI runs into as she tries to solve a case that is based on a house of cards, one lie after another.

This is quite a classic PI story, with an interesting angle since the tough PI carrying a gun and getting into fights that end up in bruised eyes and broken bones is a chick. A great read for a vacation or just for fun, the story is maingly superficial but the author does capture (I think) the inner workings and contradictions of a tough chick. Interesting read for a woman, then, but also for a guy.

In Sara Paretsky's first novel, she lays the foundation for Chicago Private Detective V.I. Warshawski's character. Her writing here is not as polished as in her later books, but V.I. in all her imperfection feels real. If you're a V.I. fan, this is worth the read.
