9780340839102: Fire Sale

South Chicago is a neighbourhood that private investigator V.I. Warshawski left a long time ago, but she's drawn back to the streets of her childhood to do a favour for a friend. It was never going to be easy, and when the mother of a local girl asks her to look into claims of sabotage at the factory where she works, V.I. quickly finds herself caught up in something deeply sinister. Lying by the roadside with a piece of hot, twisted metal embedded in her shoulder, looking up at the factory's smouldering remains, Warshawski begins to wonder if this trip down memory lane was such a good idea after all.

About the Author:

Sara Paretsky is the author of fourteen previous books, including twelve V. I. Warshawski novels. She is the winner of many awards, including the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for lifetime achievement from the British Crime Writers’ Association. She lives in Chicago.

From AudioFile:

Sandra Burr lends credible Hispanic and British accents to the characters V.I. Warshawski encounters as she investigates a factory fire. Burr's characterizations are true to the author's direction; discount store heir-apparent Billy the Kid sounds even younger than his years, and the disapproving grunts emitted by Billy's grandfather are amusingly believable. As V.I. and other characters face exhaustion, fear, and illness, Burr adapts her reading to vocalize weakness, terror, and pain. Her pace is in step with the harrowing moments in which V.I. confronts a surprising killer. The only weakness is that the large cast of characters is a bit difficult for listeners to differentiate.

Book Description Hodder/Hachette, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Death, conspiracy and burning buildings - coming home wasn`t meant to be like this. A dangerous, depressed place reeking of bad memories, South Chicago is a neighbourhood private investigator V.I. Warshawski left a long time ago. But now she`s back, drawn to the streets of her childhood once again to do a favour for a friend. It was never going to be easy - and when the mother of a local girl asks her to look into claims of sabotage at the factory where she works, V.I. quickly finds herself caught up in something far more sinister. They say home is where the heart is, but now, as she lies by the roadside with a piece of hot, twisted metal embedded in her shoulder, looking up at the factory`s smouldering remains, Warshawski is beginning to wonder whether a trip down memory lane was such a good idea after all. Fire Sale marks the glorious next step for V.I. Warshawski - one of the most complex, compelling characters in modern crime fiction - and confirms Sara Paretsky`s position as one of the world`s leading crime writers. Printed Pages: 528.
