Carmilla, Queen of the Night, is a shape-shifting raven whose fictional exploits thrill girls all over the world. When tweens in Chicago's Carmilla Club hold an initiation ritual in an abandoned cemetery, they stumble on an actual corpse, a man stabbed through the heart in a vampire-style slaying.

The girls include daughters of some of Chicago's most powerful families: the grandfather of one, Chaim Salanter, is among the world's wealthiest men; the mother of another, Sophy Durango, is running for the United States Senate.

For V. I. Warshawski, the questions multiply faster than the answers. Is the killing linked to a hostile media campaign against Sophy Durango? Or to Chaim Salanter's childhood in Nazi-occupied Lithuania? As V.I. struggles to answer these questions, she finds herself fighting enemies who are no less terrifying for being all too human.

    " Another page turner from Paretsky. This one gives us conservative talk show hosts, holocaust escape narratives, schizophrenia, as well as the whole host of regulars I have come to expect. I appreciate a complicated mystery, but this one tries to hard to be contemporary and topical, to the extent that it seems forced at times. "

    " There were many things I liked about this book - V.I.'s character has grown and deepened over time, and Paretsky's social commentary is always relevant and incisive. I did have a problem, however, with the interweaving of various plot lines as the mystery unraveled - it really strained the book's credibility and distracted me from enjoying the book. Overall, a good read but not her best. "

    " Okay but not memorable. "

    " The latest in the V I Warshawski series. Fabulously gripping. Warshawski is an intelligent private investigator who, in this novel, gets drawn into a complex murder investigation with political overtones. Characters are well drawn and, sadly in some cases, all too human. Great story. "
