Read in October, 2008

I have read several of the V. I. Warshawski novels by Sara Paretsky. This is the ninth in the series, and very, very wel written.

V. I.---her fiends call her "Vic" is a very realistically drawn person. She is intelligent, strong, smart, tough--and yet has very human failings. As you read the series, her character is developed thouthough the books. (You can read them out of order--each will stand alone).

IN this novel, Vic is accused by a dangerous cop of vehicular homicide and ends up--on false charges---in a womens' prison. Her attempts to investigate what is going on in the prson endanger her life. Sara paretsky, the author, makes some good points about our criminal justice system.

Very highly recommended to any mystery fan. This one starts slow, but once Sara Paretsky builds up some steam, you are in for a real wild, exciting ride.
