About the Author

Hailed by P. D. James as "the most remarkable" of modern crime writers, Sara Paretsky is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-two novels, including the renowned V.I. Warshawski series. She is one of only four living writers to have received both the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America and the Cartier Diamond Dagger from the Crime Writers Association of Great Britain. She lives in Chicago.


Swift and superb.--Seattle Times on Dead Land
"As usual, Paretsky is less interested in identifying whodunit than in uncovering a monstrous web of evil, and this web is one of her densest and most finely woven ever. So fierce, ambitious, and far-reaching that it makes most other mysteries seem like so many petit fours."--Kirkus Reviews on Dead Land
Propulsive.... The tale's relentless pacing, sky-high stakes, and strong social justice advocacy should keep readers invested in the expertly crafted characters' fates. Series fans will get their money's worth."--Publishers Weekly on Overboard
"Not just murder, but adultery, hate crime, fraud, elder abuse, police misconduct, and dysfunctional families. Enjoy."--Kirkus Reviews on Overboard
A crime-fiction pro struts her stuff.--People on Love & Other Crimes
"Wonderful company and a rich discovery awaiting those who have yet to meet [Warshawski]. "--Los Angeles Times
"A proper hero for these times . . . To us, V.I. is perfect."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review, on Dead Land
"Sara Paretsky's gloriously kick-ass private eye, V.I. 'Vic' Warshawski, is . . . the definition of perfection in the genre."--Washington Post on Dead Land
[A] series bar-raiser . . . A high point in Paretsky's long-running and much-loved series.--Booklist (starred review) on Dead Land
Paretsky's clever plotting and storytelling crusades against corruption remain unchanged in this particularly evocative visit to Vic's world.--Booklist on Overboard
