14 posts | 6 read | 3 reading | 4 to read
Sara Paretsky follows her instant New York Times bestseller Fallouther most widely read novel in yearswith an extraordinary adventure that pits her acclaimed detective, V.I. Warshawski, against some of todays most powerful figures. Legendary sleuth V.I. Warshawski returns to the Windy City to save an old friends nephew from a murder arrest. The case involves a stolen artifact that could implicate a shadowy network of international criminals. As V.I. investigates, the detective soon finds herself tangling with the Russian mob, ISIS backers, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen art that stretches from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East. In Shell Game, nothing and no one are what they seem, except for the detective herself, who loses sleep, money, and blood, but remains indomitable in her quest for justice.

VI faces two mysteries: a man is dead with Lotty‘s nephew accused of the crime and a woman is missing. She attempts to unravel both while Sara Paretsky weaves in her clear disdain for the current president and his policies. A well-written, well-layered mystery.

Librarybelle Great pick! For some reason, I‘ve yet to read any of Paretsky‘s books. I‘ll have to change that! 12mo
NatalieR I‘m gonna have to check out this author. 12mo
Hooked_on_books @Librarybelle @NatalieR I‘ve read almost everything she‘s written—I‘ve read her for years. I really like her character, as she‘s a strong, independent woman who loves dogs. 12mo
NatalieR @Hooked_on_books sounds like my kind of person! 💪🐾 12mo
Pamwurtzler That‘s my pick for Illinois too! I‘m planning to read it soon. 12mo

"Shell Game": appropriately named beach read!

Paretsky is on top of current affairs in her latest
V.I. Warshawski quest for justice.
