Private Eye Vic Warshawski is in a professional and personal mess. What she needs is a lucrative case. What she doesn't need are the woes of a homeless family, a love-sick teenage computer hack - and a dead body slumped across her desk.

From the Publisher:

"One of the most critically acclaimed (series) of the last decade."
-- Chicago Sun-Times

"No one, male or female, writes better P.I. books than Paretsky."
--The Denver Post

"V.I(is) undoubtedly one of the best--written characters in mystery fiction."
--The Baltimore Sun

From the Inside Flap:

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.
