Dead Land : V.I. Warshawski 20 Hardback

Hardback

Description

'A novel full of surprises... It's vintage Paretsky, and hard to put down' - The Sunday Times Top 10 Thriller of 2020 (The Washington Post, Kirkus Reviews)Chicago is the city of broad shoulders, but V.I.

Warshawski knows its politics: "Pay to Play". Money changes hands in the middle of the night; by morning, buildings and parks have been replaced by billion-dollar projects. Private investigator V.I. gets pulled into one of these clandestine deals when her impetuous goddaughter Bernie tries to rescue a famed singer-songwriter, now living on the streets. Thanks to Bernie, V.I. finds herself in the path of some developers whose negotiating strategy is simple: they bulldoze - or kill - any obstacle in their way. Questions pile up almost as fast as the dead bodies. When she tries to answer them, the detective finds a terrifying conspiracy stretching from Chicago's parks to a cover-up of the dark chapters in the American government's interference in South American politics.

Before finds answer, V.I. will be pushed closed to breaking point. People who pay to play take no prisoners.
