Overview

New York Times Bestseller: A Chicago PI trying to help her elderly neighbors ends up tangled in politics and a murder in this “fast-paced, complicated mystery” (New York Daily News).
 
V.I. “Vic” Warshawski and her neighbor share responsibility for a currently pregnant dog—but Mr. Contreras complains that her detective work keeps her too busy to help with little Peppy. Still, that doesn’t stop him from adding more to her plate by asking her to investigate the disappearance of his friend, a fellow retiree. At the same time, Vic’s trying to look out for a vulnerable eighty-year-old down the street whose property is considered an eyesore by the newcomers gentrifying the neighborhood.
 
When Mr. Contreras’s friend turns up dead in a canal, and the old lady on the block winds up in the hospital, Vic is swept into a world of organized labor, money, and politics—and discovers a distressing personal connection to the case. Vic may not always succeed as a guardian angel—but when things go wrong, she can chase down the demons—in this suspenseful novel from the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master and “crime-fiction pro” (People).
 
“Paretsky’s emphasis on character comes at no expense of action: Vic’s investigation is as physical as it is mental, taking her inside Chicago’s industrial world and up against bad guys who use everything from bats to heavy machinery to thwart her. Among today’s PIs, nobody comes close to Warshawski.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“The richest and most engaging yet of Ms. Paretsky’s thrillers.” —The New York Times
 
“Densely textured, adroitly plotted.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“One monster of a plot.” —Booklist
