I have read (almost) all of Sara Paretsky’s VI Warshawski novels and love them. The central character always has me laughing, smiling and holding my breath from fear and in awe. Not only that, the author manages to encompass up-to-date storylines and information so nothing seems dated or jaded.
This time VI is in Chicago because an old friend’s nephew has been arrested for murder. As usual nothing is as straightforward as it should be and before long VI is tangled up with the Russian mob, ISIS backers and some sort of stock scam. It’s always good to become reacquainted with characters from the previous novels and this made it even more entertaining.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Hodder & Stoughton and Sara Paretsky for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Another excellent read from this author. Highly recommended.
