Feisty Chicago private eye Vic 'V.I.' Warshawski is used to getting mixed up in complicated cases. But when three million dollars in share certificates are stolen from a Dominican priory, she really doesn't want to get involved. Because agreeing to investigate would mean doing a favour for Aunt Rosa, the priory's treasurer, and Vic has never forgiven Rosa for something she did a long time ago. Against her better judgement, Vic gets drawn in, only to be suddenly called off the case. But she doesn't give up easily and, despite a campaign of intimidation against her, starts to uncover a massive conspiracy involving the Mafia and the Catholic church... .

Starring Kathleen Turner as V.I. Warshawski and with a star cast including Martin Shaw, Adjoa Andoh, and Lorelei King, this gripping drama will appeal to all fans of Sara Paretsky's hard-boiled heroine.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Somyajeet | 2/14/2014

    " A well paced detective novel to read with a female character in the lead. "

    " I didn't think of it before, but Wasrshawski is a proto-Buffy. She is, after all, a private detective who loves fancy shoes, but is tough enough for her job. Further musing suggests that the crime genre has always been accepting of women who were both tough and feminine. There is, after all, Nancy Drew, (Kick-Ass) Girl Detective [the Kick-Ass is silent]. "

    " Another familiar character, problems, complications, and no easy fixes. V.I. muddles through better than most but her world is not perfect. However, her outcomes are reasonable and realistic. Mystery readers should enjoy this older one of Sara Paretsky's books. "

    " I have read some of this several times over the years. It's a great series. "
