Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Since her debut in Paretsky's Indemnity Only, Chicago private eye V. (Victoria) I. Warshawski has been attracting both enthusiastic readers and critical acclaim. This fourth story narrated by the spiky detective is the series' most suspenseful so far. V. I. brings a teenager about to give premature birth to a private hospital where the mother and her baby die. Since the poor girl's own obstetrician is unavailable, Warshawski's friend, Dr. Tregiere, arrives from his inner-city hospital to check procedures; he's found murdered later. So is the supposedly bereaved husband, member of a street gang that atacks Warshawski during her tenacious investigation of the related cases. There are other appalling deaths as tough V. I. gets to the facts behind a tawdry coverup. The cast of the earlier mysteries again adds flavor here, and the big city's ethnic mix, as enlived by Paretsky, does too.

Review

"No one, male or female, writes better P.I. books than Paretsky."
--The Denver Post

"Paretsky's books are beautifully paced and plotted, and the dialogue is fresh and smart.... V.I. Warshawski is the most engaging woman in detective fiction."
--Newsweek

"The plot [is] fast moving, the dialogue snappy, the premise for murder persuasive.  This novel hasn't a single snag in its springs."
--Chicago Sun-Times

"Paretsky is still the best...she doesn't pull punches."  
--The Washington Post Book World --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read all of the Sara Paretsky mysteries, and think this is the weakest of the group. She maintains her writerly skill, but the plot in this novel feels like it was devised to make a political point about women's access to health care and particularly to abortion. In the process, she takes pot shots at her political opponents by making the characters of those who disagree with her unidimensional, manipulative, and unlikeable. The novel does have suspenseful elements, but not enough, and I just didn't buy the story. If you want to read all the books in the series, this is readable. If you're picking the best, go with Hard Time or Tunnel Vision.

I read this book back in 1988 when it was first published. Having forgotten this, I purchased this newly reissued edition. I really wish publishers would make it clear right up front (on the cover) that these books have been previously published. This is a good story, but not worth reading a second time.

Almost interesting, but finally wraps up with stock villians and an implausable resolution. The fact that this is set entirely in the world of doctors and hospitals, healthcare economics, which Ms Paretsky obviously does not understand, dooms the story.

A complicated story that keeps the reader rivetted, and of course, a surprise ending.
