This is the best Warshawski novel ever and well worth waiting for. Brilliantly plotted, full of heart-wrenching emotion, packed with fast-paced action, and peopled with richly complex characters. — Booklist (starred)

…and one of her most satisfying ambitious novels yet…A triumphant return to form for V I, who’s come back from a five-year sabbatical. — Kirkus Reviews (starred)

On Tunnel Vision

Complex, satisfying …Paretsky’s V I is a rare literary entity, a woman quick to anger and action, yet sympathetic and credible. — Publishers Weekly

Articulate and independent…Warshawski never wears thin.— San Francisco Chronicle

On Burn Marks

It’s nice to see that success agrees with some people. Sara Paretsky, in her sixth mystery featuring Chicago detective V I Warshawski, just keeps getting better. For some popular writers, success breeds complacency and sloppiness, but Ms. Paretsky continues to hone her writing and the characterization of her protagonist. — Journal Constitution (Atlanta)
