A strange crime gets V.I. Warshawski involved with some of Chicago’s most rich and powerful players in this thriller from New York Times bestselling author Sara Paretsky.
When a group of Chicago tweens holds a ritual in an abandoned cemetery, they stumble on an actual corpse—stabbed through the heart in a vampire-style slaying. V.I. Warshawski arrives on the scene to escort the girls home–but protecting them places her at the tangled center of the investigation. And the girls include daughters of some of Chicago’s most powerful families: the grandfather of one, Chaim Salanter, is among the world’s wealthiest men; the mother of another, Sophy Durango, is running for the United States Senate.
For V.I., the questions multiply faster than the answers. Is the killing linked to a hostile media campaign against Durango—or to Salanter’s childhood in Nazi-occupied Lithuania? As V.I. struggles to find an answer, she finds herself fighting enemies who are no less terrifying for being all too human.

Fast paced and exciting!
This is another excellent book by Sara Paretsky. One of the finest writers, especially mysteries. She manages to write well and keep it fast paced and very interesting. Whenever I start one of her books I can't stop reading it until I finish it. I especially like mysteries in which I can't guess who did it and she manages to keep me wondering who did it to almost the end of every novel.
Best Paretsky plot so far
There were several families who were involved in supposedly unrelated events. The plot thickens. The only reason I gave it a four was that the it was difficult to remember the relationships of the characters. When reading this book, it might be a good idea to jot down the characters as they appear.
