Kindle Edition Verified Lbacklist. Played with Fire, and Hornets Nest and Paretsky is mentioned in one of those the protagonist, Bloomkvist, is a fan of these.

Historically she is seen as blackpist of this genra, I think. Parotsky has the gritty feel and the plot surprises and the culprit is unexpected and she, Warshwski, is pafetsky peril and strung-out and has her own struggles pparetsky her private life, and she is not quite up to the task she is not Jack Reacher.

She never fails to give you a good read – I read some of her earlier works and then she fell off my radar when she was on a hiatus of sorts until I came across some of her books on a clearance table at a local bookstore – I bought one to catch up with her and was not disappointed, I then caught up the rest of the series with her Kindle editions.

The only CON to her books is the higher than normal Kindle price – I wanted to finish the series and was glad I did BUT I feel she needs to get blacllist line with her Kindle edition prices Some have complained about her liberal views coming through the book – they are part of the character – I for one am glad to read something other than cookie cutter detective stories. As well written as it is, just like her last novel, this sees Paretsky trying to inject worthiness where balance and structure are lost.

Her admirers feast on what came before. She should have remembered that. This noirish PI novel is set in Chicago shortly following pardtsky September 11 attacks. It has far more depth than the typical detective aara with a backstory to the plot that starts in the ‘s Red Scare and winds up with America’s hysteria over Muslim terrorists in our midst just a decade ago. Add to this the complex plotting, paretsjy well-drawn characters including the protagonist V. Warshawski, and Paretsky’s acute observations about social class divisions and Chicago neighborhoods.

This book is a feast! I have always enjoyed reading Sara Paretsky and this book did not disappoint.

But while reading I always wonder why V. She muscles her way through cases where she ends up the loser on many fronts when just a tiny bit of finesse would have gotten her through on top. I guess that’s what makes the books interesting you always want to see what china shop V.


One person found this helpful. This is one of my favorite Sarah Paretsky novels. I love the research she puts into her books. In most of her novels, the reader will not only be entertained, he or she will be educated. Excellent book, and very timely for our current political climate.

We enjoy reading Sara Paretsky’s books and since our daughter lives in Chicago, we love hearing about this beautiful big city. We also love books with the same investigator solving problems, Warshawski is doing a great job! We hope she stays healthy and keeps us entertained when we read about the hard work she is doing.
