Praise for Indemnity Only: V.I. Warshawski Bk 1: V.I. Warshawski 1

  • '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
