When V.I. Warshawski is asked to find a man who's been missing for four decades, a search that she thought would be futile turns lethal. Old skeletons from the city's racially charged history rise up to force her back with a vengeance - a nun who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. dies without revealing crucial evidence, and on the city's South Side, people spit when she shows up. The elderly sisters who hired her are also keeping important information to themselves. Then V.I. finds that her family is keeping secrets of their own. A young cousin whom she's never met arrives from Kansas City to work on a political campaign, but disappears under mysterious circumstances. Afraid to learn that her adored father might have been a bent cop, deception and corruption following her at every step, V.I. finds all her certainties under threat, but takes the investigation all the way to its frightening end.

From AudioFile:

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
