V.I. Warshawski isn't crazy about going back to her old south Chicago neighborhood, but a promise is something she always keeps. Caroline, a childhood friend, has a dying mother and a problem -- after twenty-five years she wants V.I. to find the father she never knew. But when V.I. starts probing into the past, she not only finds out where all the bodies are buried -- she stumbles onto a very new corpse. Now she's stirring up a deadly mix of big business and chemical corruption that may become a toxic shock to a snooper who knows too much. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Fantastic story, and it just keeps you guessing up until the very end. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 2/15/2014

    " Moving forward in time as I catch up with the series, I am struck by Vic's strength of character and stubbornness even more so in this installment. The story revealed more of the underbelly of Chicago than in some of the series; but greed knows no bounds, just don't get in the sights of V.I. or watch out! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 molly | 2/15/2014

    " the second-best book in the hostel book exchange. again, i am not kidding. not a fan of conventional mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Etzel | 2/8/2014

    " Held my attention but it was too predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken Rogerson | 2/5/2014

    " fun read, reminiscent of Sue Grafton. Doesn't get into relationships/character development too much. thanks for that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 2/4/2014

    " Paretsky entices the reader in and keeps the hold on till the end. Even though this book was written in the 1980's, it is still an excellent and gripping read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/17/2014

    " I don't like all the flip dialogue of the detective character, much of this book was over the top for me. A dying woman's daughter wants to find out who her father was, who got her mother pregnant. Lots of drama, lots of 'maybe' then the ending. Can't recommend this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jerry | 1/15/2014

    " We hate it when publishers do this -- this book is merely "Blood Shot", the fifth in the V.I. Warshawski series, re-titled. What a rip-off !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 1/12/2014

    " I thought VI got off to easy this time around, but it was a fun read. In terms of purely story it was tight and had strong characters, good and bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victor J. | 1/2/2014

    " Not Paretsky's best detective novel by far, but a pleasant evening's diversion nonetheless. Probably better suited to hardcore fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 12/25/2013

    " This was my first Paretsky book and her lead character is a P.I. much like Kinsey Milhone, the Sue Grafton character. Very good read. Set in Chicago of the late 80's. Will try some more books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/9/2013

    " One of my favorite things about this series is the way it shines light on crime with a financial element. To my economic-rationalist mind, it's a great relief to read a mystery where the motive isn't that the perp is crazy and/or sexually deranged. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 King Monkey | 12/4/2013

    " Top notch. How it's done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Rittenhouse | 12/3/2013

    " Good mystery book. Warshawski is an intelligent PI, independent but not too much a crazy lone wolf to be irritating. In this one she is asked to help find the natural father of a childhood friend. By the end she's taken on mobs, politicians and corporate tycoons. Fast paced and never silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Librarian2191 | 12/1/2013

    " As always Sara Paretsky delivers a fast paced well thought out plot that kept me up half the night to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra Battle | 11/19/2013

    " I saw Sara on the TODAY SHOW when she talk about her book becoming a movie. My mother and I went and i love the movie, that year she got me Blood Shot for the holidays and I've been reading her book ever since than. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 11/5/2013

    " A book from the V.I. Warshawski series. I've really enjoyed the books in this series that I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois Kanwischer | 9/23/2013

    " Good feel for Chicago and the politics. Interesting plots "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 5/21/2013

    " Not the best of the V.I. Warshawki novels, but certainly suspenseful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margie | 4/27/2013

    " Much better crime fiction than anything I've read by men. Believable characters, well-written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 3/19/2013

    " But didn't read them in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 3/11/2013

    " This was probably one of the first of her novels I read. I had read a lot of "Spenser" by this time, and it was fun to read the genre with a female heroine. The author's love for the city of Chicago shines through her writing, and the conflict between the old and new cities is very well-drawn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne Jay | 12/25/2012

    " Wonderful book from a wonderful author ..... Sara Paretsky once again hits a grand slam as we follow the exploits of V.I. Warshawski. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 10/12/2012

    " Paretsky's VI Warshawski is a character. It is worth following her through her dramas. Fun and entertaining mystery. "
