Sara Paretsky is the author of many novels, including her V. I. Warshawski series, which began with Indemnity Only. She lives in Chicago.Review:
With each novel Paretsky lets intrepid detective V I Warshawski (Aka 'Vic') take a few more physical lumps, though the more interesting dings are emotional ones. Here Paretsky constructs and maintains one monster of a plot ... The author's gift for finding the precise urban setting and crafting her narrative jigsaw puzzle with unerring accuracy remains intact. Booklist 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 It's hard not to get caught up in her passion ... Snappy dialogue, tight plotting and realistic situations make Paretsky's unapologetically politicised thrillers a pleasure to read, whatever your viewpoint. Daily Mail The thing about Sara Paretsky is, she's tough ... she doesn't flinch from examining old social injustices others might find too shameful (and too painful) to dig up New York Times Some crime series grow stale over time, but there's no sign of fatigue here. This is partly because the recurring characters continue to develop and engage the reader, and partly because of the moral intelligence that informs the writing. Spectator Paretsky has been putting her private investigator through her paces since 1982, changing perceptions of women in crime fiction through the creation of a fiercely independent female detective. She keeps her brand of politicised noir fresh by responding to issues - social, cultural and political as well as gender - in contemporary life ... Paretsky is firing on all cylinders Metro
