'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 feisty, tough and shrewd heroine appears in her fourth adventure in the V.I. Warshawski series, from one of America's greatest female crime writers.
