The feisty, tough and shrewd heroine is back in her third adventure in the V I Warshawski series, beautifully repackaged for a new generation.
Years ago V I Warshawski's Aunt Rosa treated the detective's beloved mother in an unforgiveable way. Now, after she's accused of stealing $3 million from the Dominican priory where she works, Rosa calls upon the ties of blood to clear her name.
V I is not prepared to forgive so easily. She doesn't want the case. Until suddenly no one else the FBI, a threatening phone caller, and even Aunt Rosa herself - appears to want her on the case either. V I turns to an old friend for help. But the stakes are higher than she could have realised . . .
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
