Synopsis: Chicago private eye V.I. Warshawski knows from the start that Consuelo Alvarado's baby is trouble.  Consuelo is sixteen.  Diabetic.  And the daughter of a friend.  When she goes into labor too early, even V.I.'s wild drive to get her to the hospital can't save either Consuelo or her child.  Soon V.I. is investigating possible malpractice at the emergency room--and falling for a doctor who works there.  Mixing business and love is always bad medicine, but V.I. finds herself listening to her heart, not her head.  And when a brutal murder and the violent destruction of a women's clinic put her at the center of a very dirty conspiracy, justice may be the only remedy for a hurt that cuts deep...and chills right to the bone....

From the Back Cover: "No one, male or female, writes better P.I. books than Paretsky."
-- The Denver Post

"Paretsky's books are beautifully paced and plotted, and the dialogue is fresh and smart.... V.I. Warshawski is the most engaging woman in detective fiction."
--Newsweek

"The plot [is] fast moving, the dialogue snappy, the premise for murder persuasive. This novel hasn't a single snag in its springs."
--Chicago Sun-Times

"Paretsky is still the best...she doesn't pull punches."
--The Washington Post Book World
