Stubbornness has landed private eye V.I. Warshawski in big trouble at her Chicago office. With her grand old Loop building set to be razed, she’s become a hold-out tenant amid frayed wiring and scary, empty corridors. Then she finds a homeless woman with three kids in the basement, and before she can rescue them, they disappear. Worst of all, she’s been implicated in a murder—after the body of Deirdre Messenger, a prominent lawyer’s wife, turns up sprawled across her desk.

V.I., who had volunteered with Deirdre at a women’s shelter, suspects her death is linked to a case of upper-class domestic abuse so slickly concealed that the police refuse to believe it. Increasingly at odds with the cops, V.I. is blindly plunging ahead after the truth. And her path may lead to corruption at the highest levels or deep into the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago’s streets, where secrets are hiding in the dark like a child’s—or V.I.’s—worst nightmare.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gini | 2/10/2014

    " Not the best of the VI Warshawski books, but still a good mystery! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 2/5/2014

    " First book I have read by this author. I will definitely look for more by her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley | 1/26/2014

    " Paretsky has never been afraid of tackling the hard issues in her books. Her narrator is a fully formed , three dimensional character with both brains and integrity. While her middle books in the series left some threads dangling, she is back on her game, and all her books are worth reading. especially in this day and age of corporate crime, it's refreshing to read a modern-day fairy tale (as all modern mysteries/crime stories are) where the good guys win. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/24/2014

    " pretty bleak exploration of homeless and abused "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie Scheirman | 1/22/2014

    " Love the V.I. Warshawski character. This one had plenty of twists and some very, pretty unbelievable situations that she encountered. Even so, it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/14/2014

    " Good paced, typical Paretsky story. Enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley Barnow | 1/7/2014

    " One of the better V.I. Warshavsky mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret Mccamant | 1/3/2014

    " Rereading for book group discussion. Sara Paretsky's one of my favorite mystery writers: I like her detective, V.I. Warshawski, and her other stock characters, and I love the setting in familiar Chicago neighborhoods. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora Stovall | 11/19/2013

    " Picked up from the information library and read by the swimming pool in Mexico. Enjoyable but not memorable, just right for the setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 10/11/2013

    " Book on Tape, Good book - enjoyed V I again. Good books to listen to, but the narrator was not good in this one. Had to ignore her voice etc and get the story which lagged until a ways into the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorrie | 9/18/2013

    " Kept me captivated and wanting to read more... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 8/12/2013

    " VI manages to be both kick-ass and believably human at the same time - I enjoy that Paretsky doesn't gloss over the pain of getting the crap kicked out of you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianne | 7/23/2013

    " This is the best of the VI series so far. Paretsky deals with some pretty heavy social issues with deep understanding and compassion. Great depth in her characters too. Complicated plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harley | 2/22/2013

    " Sara Paretsky is one of two mystery writers that I read. I love the character: V.I. Warshawski. Set in Chicago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 8/30/2011

    " Entertaining, but I couldn't help being bothered by how unbelievable Vic is as a character -- really too good and both too flawed at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 8/16/2011

    " This is the only one of the Warshawski series I've read all the way through and I enjoyed most of it. Paretsky can get preachy at times which slows things down but this one had little of that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Leggitt | 7/6/2011

    " Not one of my favorites by this author. Took me a long time to decide really didn't much care about whether I finished or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Petula Darling | 6/24/2011

    " It's been a while since I've read a book that didn't leave me rolling my eyes with disgust over various bits of stupidity amidst the pages, so this eye-roll-free Warshawski volume was a pleasant surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoTownhead | 1/15/2011

    " VI's strong sense of social justice and nose for corruption take her once again into the seedy side of Chicago life. Juggling investigations, friends old and new, and her current relationship takes its toll but VI is resilient, brave and resourceful. A strong, satisfying read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelley Barnow | 12/28/2010

    " One of the better V.I. Warshavsky mysteries. "

    " 9th V.I. Warshawski Novel.

    This one was riveting. It tells of a real story of flooding in Chicago. It goes beyond adventure. "
