Crime is common ground for the twenty-one women writers in this extraordinary collection of contemporary mystery fiction. The voices here include professional crime solvers who take you from the mean streets of V.I. Warshawski’s Chicago in a case of music and murder… to the California freeway where Kinsey Millhone’s beloved VW skids into a shooting… to the gang-held turf of Sharon says mum’s the word. And then there are mothers, grandmothers, battered wives, and social workers — ordinary women in extraordinary situations whose voices reveal contemporary life as seen through a woman’s eye. From the opening tale of a girl down-and-out in London and what she steals from a corpse… to the final story of a summer vacation in the Berkshires, complete with romance and sudden death… this unique collection brings us great mystery writing that engages both our intellects and our hearts.
Sara Paretsky is the author of 20 books, including her renowned V. I. Warshawski novels. Her many awards include the Cartier Diamond Dagger Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Crime Writers’ Association and the 2011 Mystery Writers of America’s Grand Master… More about Sara Paretsky
