When Chicago Black Hawks hockey legend Boom Boom Warshawski slips off a wharf and drowns in Lake Michigan, his private-eye cousin questions the accidental death report and rumors of suicide. Armed with a bottle of Black Label and a Smith & Weson, V.I. follows a trail of violence and corruption to the center of the Windy City's powerful shipping industry. Dodging elaborate attempts on her life with characteristic grit and humor, the one-of-a-kind detective wends her way through a maze of grain elevators and thousand-ton freighters, ruthless businessmen and gorgeous ballerinas, to ferret out Boom Boom's killers before they phase her out of the picture-permanently.

Pressestimmen

Praise for Sara Paretsky and Her Detective Series Featuring V. I. Warshawski

The best on the beat? V.I. Warshawski [is] the top of the line. Chicago Tribune

Who is America s most convincing and engaging professional female private eye? V.I. Warshawski, the star of Sara Paretsky s series about white-collar crime and wall-to-wall corruption in Chicago, now clearly leads the growing field. Entertainment Weekly

What really continues to amaze and impress about this series is V.I. herself, undoubtedly one of the best-written characters in mystery fiction. The Baltimore Sun

Parentsky s work does more than turn a genre upside down: Her books are beautifully paced and plotted. . . . The dialogue is fresh and smart. Newsweek
