V. I. Warshawski explores secrets and betrayals that stretch across four generations in this New York Times bestselling novel from one of the most compelling writers in American crime fiction...

“A thoughtful, high-tension mystery.”—The Washington Post Book World

“A genuinely exciting and disturbing thriller.”—Chicago Tribune

As a favor to her most important client, V. I. agrees to check up on an empty mansion. But instead of a mysterious intruder she discovers a dead man in the ornamental pond—a reporter for an African-American publication whom the suburban cops are quick to dismiss as a suicide.

When the man’s shattered family hires V. I. to investigate, she is sucked into a Gothic tale of sex, money, and power, leading her back to McCarthy-era blacklists and forward to some of the darker aspects of the Patriot Act. As V. I. finds herself penned in to a smaller and smaller space by an array of people trying to silence her, and before she can untangled the sordid truth, two more people will die—and V.I.’s own life will hang in the balance.


Baker & Taylor
Checking up on empty family mansions for an old client, V.I. discovers the dead body of a missing reporter who disappeared during the McCarthy era, a find that is linked to two prestigious Chicago families and leads to her involvement in the search for a missing boy with terrorist connections. Reprint.

This was my first experience with this author. I found the writing flat and uninteresting and the story telling tedious. Surprising as I chose based on the authors mystery writing awards.
