About this title

Synopsis:

When her seedy and importunate Aunt Elena turns up on her doorstep at midnight having been burned out of her old people's home, V.I. Warshawski is exasperated rather than curious. Her interest is aroused however, when an old friend, now a politician, puts pressure on her to investigate.

From the Publisher:

Someone knocking on the door at 3 A.M. is never good news. For V.I. Warshawski, the bad news arrives in the form of her wacky, unwelcome aunt Elena. The fire that has just burned down a sleazy SRO hotel has brought Elena to V.I.'s doorstep. Uncovering an arsonist -- and the secrets hidden behind Elena's boozy smile -- will send V.I. into the seedy world of Chicago's homeless... into the Windy City's backroom deals and bedroom politics, where new schemers and old cronies team up to get V.I. off the case -- by hook, by crook, or by homocide.

"Paretsky's best book to date." -- Kansas City Star

"V.I. Warshawsi is good company and a rich discovery awaiting those who have yet to meet her." -- Los Angeles Times

"Sara Paretsky just keeps getting better and better!" -- The Atlanta Journal -constitution

"Another triumph for Ms. Paretsky, her most captivating novel yet... V.I. herself [is] undoubtedly on of the best-written characters in mystery fiction." -- The Baltimore Sun
