Hired to track down a man who has been missing for forty years, V.I. Warshawski inadvertently unearths old skeletons from Chicago's history and her own family, a situation marked by a young cousin she has never met and the untimely death of a nun. By the Cartier Diamond Dagger-winning author of Blacklist.

Sara Paretsky is the author of sixteen books, including her renowned V. I. Warshawski novels. Her many awards include the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for lifetime achievement from the British Crime Writers' Association. She lives in Chicago.
V.I. Warshawski's latest case may be the most frustrating she's encountered. The client is irritable. The job, finding the harpy's son, missing for 40 years, should be easy but isn't. And when Warshawski asks people about the missing man, they get angry and try to kill her. With her gravelly voice, narrator Susan Ericksen sounds like Kathleen Turner, who played Warshawski on the big screen. Ericksen ramps up the excitement in the story with a memorable voice that is intense and breathless. She's equally convincing as a gangbanger, a gentle nun, a kindly neighbor, and a stroke victim. Each character shines as an individual, making this one of the best Sara Paretsky productions ever. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
