This sixth adventure of Chicago private eye Victoria Iphenigia Warshawski begins with arson and proceeds to homicide. "While everyone else in this complicated, occasionally tedious plot urges her toward traditional female paths, V.I. resolutely forges her own trail, maintaining the spunk and humor that have earned her a large, devoted following," said PW.
