How enjoyable to settle down with a new book by Sara Paretsky. ( Sunday Telegraph)
With the creation of V.I. Warshawski, Sara Paretsky did more than anyone to change the face of contemporary women's fiction. ( Express on Sunday)
Warshawski's darkest outing, with no sign that her creator is flagging. Paretsky has written a novel in which a great deal is stripped bare, including Warshawski's innermost anxieties about herself, producing a narrative as gripping as it is emotionally wrenching. ( JOAN SMITH, Sunday Times)
The stunning first novel in the V.I. Warshawski series, introducing one of the world's best-loved private investigators.
