V I Warshawski made her stunning debut twenty-five years ago in Indemnity Only - this is the second V I novel, newly available from Hodder paperbacks.
'Who're you working for then, Warshawski?' 'My cousin.' 'Boom Boom? He's dead.' 'I know. That's why I'm working for him.' Boom Boom's body was found floating near the docks, chewed up and spat out by a ship's propeller. More like brother and sister than cousins, Vic and Boom Boom looked out for each other. Boom Boom grew up to be an ice hockey hero, and Vic a private eye. And now V I Warshawski would like to know how, exactly, her cousin died . . .
How enjoyable to settle down with a new book by Sara Paretsky. - Sunday Telegraph
With the creation of V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky did more than anyone to change the face of contemporary women's fiction. - Express on Sunday
Warshawski's darkest outing, with no sign that her creator is flagging. Paretsky has written a novel in which a great deal is stripped bare, including Warshawski's innermost anxieties about herself, producing a narrative as gripping as it is emotionally wrenching. - JOAN SMITH, Sunday Times
