This is a great book. Easy to read and is the same quality that you expect from Paretsky. The wise and forever funny Warshawski comes thru in this book as a real person who always has her feet in trouble. Hard to put this book down as I was wanting to read what the final outcome was.

V.I. is up to her usual, fast-paced investigative mode here, even ending up in a land fill! Paretsky braids together several interlocking plot lines before revealing the truth!

Vic Warshawski left behind her tough southside Chicago neighborhood over a quarter of a century ago but a new case brings her back to the sad, broken down area where she grew up. This is the most recent installment in the series by acclaimed author Sara Paretsky.

My first introduction to V.I. Warshawski novels and I found this one to be extremely engaging and well written. I will definitely read more of Sara Paretsky's novels.

I just recently discovered Sara Paretsky & V.I. Warshawski. I love mysteries with female sleuths, so I was happy to stumble onto another author. What makes this particular author and this book stand out to me is that workers rights and the labor movement have such a presence. All too often, unions & union workers are only mentioned in passing, often the butt of a joke. It's refreshing to see an author incorporate such an important part of our society into a well-written story. I, for one, will continue to read books written by Paretsky.
