    " That description of the plot above is completely wrong! - at least, it's not VI's dog and puppies but her neighbour's who are put to sleep, while the latter is in hospital. Tut. "

    " Another excellent tome from Sara. She has a way of telling a story and building her character so that I can identify with despite that I'm neither a detective or live in an apartment in Chicago. I've read a number of her Vi series and enjoying everyone. "

    " I read this book while working out because I got it in large print at the library. It was okay--pretty standard detective fare from the 90's. Whatev. "

    " I'm working my way through my Dad's Sara Paretsky collection. We both love/d V.I. Warshawski. Starting over with Guardian Angel. "

    " V. I. Warshawski is a great character and Paretsky simply makes her richer and more complex all the time. Think of this book as a mid-life crisis involving suspicions, death, the elederly, dogs and corruption. "

    " P.I. V.I. Warshawski is intelligent, soft hearted, tough, and witty. Great role model as well as detective. "

    " Love this Chicago P.I. series. Fantastic characters and the city as an ever-present, gritty, realistic background. "

    " VI and company starting to feel like old friends, add the lumbering large dogs in the inner city, how does she cope. "

    " I'm reasonably sure this is the only V.I. Warshawski mystery I've read - she certainly seemed fresh and unexpected. I liked the obviously alert mind and the physical courage; I liked the strong sense of Chicago as a place. The tone was a bit flip sometimes. I'd read more. "

    " V. I. is as angry as ever, but she is justified in many of the cases she encounters; this would be one of them. Tracking down financial fraud shouldn't be so dangerous, but Vic manages to come close to serious injury during this case. "

    " Between a shoutout to the pension legislation that rules my working hours and a still-timely nod to gentrification's darker side, this might be my favorite outing for V.I. - Paretsky's a legend, and rightly so. "

    " Also suitable for light afternoon reading. The dialogue is often strained, with people handing out information to forward the plot left and right without sounding natural. Had some funny, enjoyable parts, but mostly I found myself yawning through the character interactions. "

    " One of the best of these so far. Good on intrigue, good on action, good on character. "

    " V.I. gets involved with crimes involving two elderly neighbors, financial misdealings, and corruption. Somehow not as compelling as her other fine mysteries. "

    " V.I. Warshawsky is one of my favorite detectives, having her adventures in Chicago. I enjoyed this story which pitted V.I. against yuppies, but it dragged a little.... "

    " I really enjoyed this book, it was a little slow getting started. I almost quite reading it. Glad I stuck with it though. It turned out to be real good. "

    " Tough girl, this Vic Warshawski. Again, she risks life and limb to uncover the underbelly of Chicago. I learned a little bit about how workers pensions are stolen. "
