New or Used: 3 copies from $8.50
Death, conspiracy and burning buildings - coming home wasn't meant to be like this. A dangerous, depressed place reeking of bad memories, South Chicago is a neighbourhood private investigator V.I. Warshawski left a long time ago. But now she's back, drawn to the streets of her childhood once again to do a favour for a friend. It was never going to be easy - and when the mother of a local girl asks her to look into claims of sabotage at the factory where she works, V.I. quickly finds herself caught up in something far more sinister. They say home is where the heart is, but now, as she lies by the roadside with a piece of hot, twisted metal embedded in her shoulder, looking up at the factory's smouldering remains, Warshawski is beginning to wonder whether a trip down memory lane was such a good idea after all . . .

Reviews

'In many ways, in fact, this is 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 'You always know what to expect when you pick up a VI Warshawski novel: intrepid investigating, feisty characters, and a plot that gathers pace and heat as the novel progresses' -- You Magazine, South Africa '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
