Summary

"The most soulful novel of her extraordinary career--the most urgent, the most haunting, the most satisfying."

--A.J. FINN, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

When V.I. Warshawski gets word that her close friend and mentor Lotty Herschel's nephew has become a murder suspect, the legendary detective will do everything to save him. The cops found Felix Herschel's name and phone number on the unknown victim's remains, but Felix insists he doesn't know why. Soon Vic discovers that the dead man was obsessed with Middle Eastern archeology--the first clue in a bewildering case.

But the trouble multiplies when Vic's long-lost niece, Reno, goes missing. Reno is harboring a secret that may cost her her life. V.I. can hear the clock ticking on her niece's safety and is frantic in her efforts to find her. She won't leave any stone unturned until these very personal cases are cleared--a complex investigation that will entangle the Russian mob, ISIS backers, rogue ICE agents, a nefarious corporation preying on the poor, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen antiquities stretching from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East.

"A multi-layered mystery with lots of moving parts that all come together in a triumphant moment of truth and justice."

--NELSON DeMILLE, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author



Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* When the nephew of V. I. (Vic) Warshawski's friend Lotty Herschel is summoned to a crime scene to identify a body, Vic can't let Felix go alone. Felix's insistence that he has no idea why his contact information was found in the dead man's pocket does little to dampen the cops' suspicions, and he's not talking to Vic, either. Vic knows she'll have to find the connection herself to keep Felix out of jail, but her only lead is the flimsy link between the victim's archaeology work in Syria and Felix's Syrian friends in his Engineering in a Free State group. Then Vic's niece Harmony calls, desperate to find her sister, Reno, who disappeared shortly after reporting that she was sexually harassed and possibly assaulted at a corporate retreat. Vic is doing double duty until she discovers that the law firm of her ex-husband, Dick, has troubling connections to both cases, and his threat-filled stonewalling indicates something beyond post-divorce antagonism. An expertly woven tale of greed and impunity emerges as the two mysteries plunge V. I. into the surprisingly dangerous world of antiquities at the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute, as well as necessitating a tightrope walk through Chicago's ICE-targeted immigrant communities and a revelatory investigation into the predatory practice of payday lending. True to form, V. I.'s latest tangle with white-collar crime's violent underbelly will leave readers pondering the intersections of power, authority, and humanity. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: 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.--Christine Tran Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lotty Herschel, V.I. Warshawski's stand-in maternal figure, needs her friend's help in MWA Grand Master Paretsky's riveting 20th novel featuring the intrepid Chicago PI (after 2017's Fall Out). The police are trying to pin a murder on Lotty's Canadian-born engineering student nephew, Felix, who's involved with Engineers in a Free State, whose members include several Middle Eastern students. In the midst of trying to gently extract information out of the recalcitrant Felix, Warshawski's own past turns up on her door in the form of Harmony Seale, the niece of her sleazy lawyer ex-husband. Harmony wants Warshawski's help in finding her older sister, Reno, who moved to Chicago for work but has fallen off the grid. Warshawki reluctantly tries to track down the wayward Reno and finds herself in the middle of a corporate power struggle, where rich men take what they want and young women caught in the middle bear the brunt of power grabs and worse. 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. Agent: Dominick Abel, Dominick Abel Agency.
