About the Author

Hailed by the Washington Post as "the definition of perfection in the genre," Sara Paretsky is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four 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.

" V.I. Warshawski [is] a sleuth to rival the greats, from Sam Spade and Nero Wolfe to Harry Bosch and Stephanie Plum... Shell Game is the most soulful novel of [Paretsky's] extraordinary career--the most urgent, the most haunting, the most satisfying. Please read Shell Game."--A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Considerable pleasure comes from following the legendary heroine through an impenetrable maze of felonies knowing that you're in a master's hands."--Kirkus Reviews
"Riveting. Paretsky isn't one to tiptoe around injustice, and this entry proves once again that she's one of the sharpest crime writers on the scene today."--Publishers Weekly
"For me, the most remarkable of the moderns is Sara Paretsky. ...No other crime writer has so powerfully and effectively combined a well-crafted detective story with the novel of social realism."--P.D. James
"As is usually the case with Paretsky's novels, there is considerable social and political commentary... Everyone else can revel in the superb pacing, the well-developed characters and the crisp dialogue from one of the most consistently excellent writers in the genre."--BookPage
"Warshawsky is an iconic sleuth, and in the recent novels she's proven a savvy vehicle for exploring changing social (and criminal) currents in the Windy City, a city she's come to define as surely as Marlowe once defined L.A."--CrimeReads, "Most Anticipated Crime Books of 2018"
"Simply superb! As a fan of V.I. Warshawski from the very beginning, I can say without a doubt that... both author and protagonist [are] at the top of their games."--Jeffery Deaver
"Shell Game is a smart and engrossing international mystery to unravel that will keep readers wrapped up in its pages."--Criminal Element
"Clever and devilishly complicated"--The Oklahoman
"Warshawski's latest adventure, Shell Game, is a multi-layered mystery with lots of moving parts that all come together in a triumphant moment of truth and justice which satisfies the soul and the intellect."--Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
"As long as Paretsky's hotheaded, quick-witted sleuth is on the job, imperiled young women...will always have a champion."--New York Times Book Review
"Chicago's V.I. Warshawski is on top form in Sara Paretsky's Shell Game."--Seattle Review of Books
"Even after decades, Paretsky's landmark series remains as popular as ever, and the social consciousness behind the stories seems ever more in tune with contemporary events."--Booklist (starred review)
"A road trip with V.I. Warshawski? Sign me up! What a thrill to join her on a missing-persons hunt that quickly turns dark and dangerous. Sara Paretsky's legendary P.I. is at the top of her game. Everyone will want to go along for this ride."--Tess Gerritsen
