Short Stories

Love & Other Crimes

Of the 14 short stories in this collection, some are new, some have already been published. Some feature V.I., some are standalone. Two – “Wildcat” and “Death on the Edge” – were published only as ebooks and so now will be available in print for the first time.

Wildcat: V.I. Warshawski's First Case

Wildcat tells a story of V.I. Warshawski's childhood, and shows how she started a life of risk-taking to save the lives of the people she cared about most.

Sisters on the Case

Read an excerpt from a short story by Sara entitled "Marquette Park." Sisters on the Case is a new anthology of 25 short stories from today's best women mystery writers.

Women on the Case

Women's work is never done, as this brilliant and diverse collection eloquently demonstrates. Sara Paretsky presents women's stories of crime and punishment on a global stage, with voices known and unknown at home and abroad.

Windy City Blues

It’s strictly Friends & Family as V.I. Warshawski, “the detective mystery fans have been waiting for” (Time), makes return appearances in a collection of stories that brings new meaning to “ties that bind.”

V.I. x3: Photo Finish, Publicity Stunts, and Marquette Park

These stories, originally published separately in magazines are being printed together in a special new format and can be purchased through Women and Children First, or directly through Lulu.
