About this title:

Synopsis:

Chicago’s V. I. Warshawski confronts crooked politicians and buried family secrets in the gritty new novel from New York Times–bestselling author Sara Paretsky.

No one would accuse V. I. Warshawski of backing down from a fight, but there are a few she’d be happy to avoid. High on that list is tangling with Chicago political bosses. Yet that’s precisely what she ends up doing when she responds to Frank Guzzo’s plea for help.

For six stormy weeks back in high school, V. I. thought she was in love with Frank. He broke up with her, she went off to college, he started driving trucks for Bagby Haulage. She forgot about him until the day his mother was convicted of bludgeoning his kid sister, Annie, to death. Stella Guzzo was an angry, uncooperative prisoner and did a full twenty-five years for her daughter’s murder.

Newly released from prison, Stella is looking for exoneration, so Frank asks V. I. for help. V. I. doesn’t want to get involved. Stella hated the Warshawskis, in particular V. I.’s adored mother, Gabriella.

But life has been hard on Frank and on V. I.’s other childhood friends, still stuck on the hardscrabble streets around the dead steel mills, and V. I. agrees to ask a few questions. Those questions lead her straight into the vipers’ nest of Illinois politics she’s wanted to avoid. When V. I. takes a beating at a youth meeting in her old hood, her main question becomes whether she will live long enough to find answers.

About the Author: Sara Paretsky is the author of twenty books, including the renowned V. I. Warshawski novels. Named 2011 Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, and a recipient of the Cartier Diamond Dagger award given by the British Crime Writers’ Association, she is president of the Mystery Writers of America. She lives in Chicago.

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The seventeenth V.I. Warshawski thriller from one of America s greatest female crime writers, and winner of Theakstons Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to CrimeFiction Award 2015.Twenty-five years ago, Stella Guzzo beat her daughter to death and then walked up the street to play bingo at her parish church. Chicago detective V.I. Warshawski grew up with the Guzzo family. She dated Frank Guzzo when they were teens and knew Stella s murderous rages first-hand, so she was relieved when a judge sent Stella to prison for a long stretch.V.I. and Frank went their different ways, V.I. to university and law school, Frank to marriage, children, and a job as a truck driver. She didn t think about the family again until the day Frank came to her office, wanting V.I. to help his mother with an exoneration claim. The detective wants no part of Stella Guzzo s world, but she realizes how hard life has been for Frank, stuck in the gang-ridden streets around Chicago s dead steel mills, and she doesn t feel able to say no.V.I. starts asking questions, but the answers leave her puzzled. Was Stella s daughter Annie the ardent girl V.I. remembers, looking for a college education as a way out of South Chicago? Or was she a calculating, amoral person, as Stella claims? And what about the lawyers Annie worked for - why did they insist on representing Stella in her murder trial? V.I. s inquiries put her smack in the path of a notorious Mob enforcer. When she gets jumped in her old hood, her biggest question becomes whether she will live long enough to find the answers. Seller Inventory # LIB9781444758764
