"The Chicago writer whose name always makes the top of the list when people talk about the new female operatives." -- Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review.
Meeting an anonymous client late on a sizzling summer night is asking for trouble. But trouble is Chicago private eye V.I. Warshwski's specialty. Her client says he's the prominent banker, John Thayer. Turns out he's not. He says his son's girlfriend, Anita Hill, is missing. Turns out that's not her real name. V.I.'s search turns up someone soon enough -- the real John Thayer's son, and he's dead. Who's V.I.'s client? Why has she been set up and sent out on a wild-goose chase? By the time she's got it figured, things are hotter -- and deadlier -- than Chicago in July. V.I.'s in a desperate race against time. At stake: a young woman's life.

A great series, that actually starts off strong. Some of her next novels fall short, some are better. Read morePublished on July 7 2002 by Daniel Byrd
V.I. Warshawski is one of the best P.I.s ever! This is a series you can't put down. Once I read one, I had to read all the rest in the series. Sara Paretsky is great!Published on Jan. 25 2002 by Lisa Kupec
