    Number 6 in the V.I Warshawski series and as it was first published in 1990 it is showing its age I can identify with that although I was around quite a bit before 1990 This is a great series but not one to binge read as it would definitely feel repetitive if the books were read closely after each other Sara Paretsky had a real formula going at the time she wrote these books and they only differ in the case she is trying to solve Vic leads an identical life in each one with the same frien Number 6 in the V.I Warshawski series and as it was first pub...

    I ran across the word aeon in a book I just finished and then again in a book that I just started Both spelled in this British way rather than thecommon eon I considered that a sign Both books were published in 1990 and I thought that cinched it I should move into the current era and stop considering that 1990 represents current in any way.Learned an important bit of information from our heroine, Ms Warshawski , that expanded my horizons In 1990 in Chicago you could get 90 fro I ran across th...

    I just couldn t connect with the main character It was dragging me down, took me days to finish this one The fact that I finished it is not because it was good but because I just can t keep a book unfinished.Thank God it s done The phrase that came to my mind for Victoria warshawski, the private detective is Bull in a china shop.She has no skill and while she goes around burned out and knocked out and everything she expectsto be treated with courtesy and patience, which is good, but she he I just couldn t connect with the main character It was dragging me down, took me days to finish this one The fact that I finished it is not be...

    Much as I hate to do it I ve gotta give up on Sara Paretsky Just as with her last few novels, I ended up defeated by the confused beginning and had to put it down before the mystery even got rolling Paretsky spends too much time setting the scene before she gives the reader any clue what the book is about, a flaw I as a reader just can t get over Which is a shame, as V.I Warshawski is a compelling protagonist once the story finally gets rolling, at least in Hard Time The one Paretsky novel Much as I hate to do it I ve gotta give up on Sara Paretsky Just as with her last few novels, I ended up defeated ...

    This is an older V I Warshawski novel for reasons that I have yet to pin down, I tend to divide the V I books between pre and post Tunnel Vision The mystery is not complex V I is investigating whether a fire at an SRO hotel was arson, and she has to investigate and deal with very sleazy real estate speculators and developers.Complicating the case is her alcoholic aunt Elena, who lived in the hotel, now has to stay with someone, and makes V I the obvious choice.Much of the book is This is an older V I Warshawski novel for reasons that I have yet to pin down, I tend to divide the V I books between pre and post Tunnel Vision The mystery is not complex V I is investigating whether a fire at an SRO hotel was arson, and she has to investigate and deal with very sleazy real estate speculators and developers.Complicating the case is her alcoholic aunt Elena, who lived in the hotel, now ...
