When V.I. Warshawski is asked to find a man who's been missing for four decades, a search that she thought would be futile turns lethal. Old skeletons from the city's racially charged history rise up to force her back with a vengeance - a nun who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. dies without revealing crucial evidence, and on the city's South Side, people spit when she shows up. The elderly sisters who hired her are also keeping important information to themselves.Then V.I. finds that her family is keeping secrets of their own. A young cousin whom she's never met arrives from Kansas City to work on a political campaign, but disappears under mysterious circumstances. Afraid to learn that her adored father might have been a bent cop, deception and corruption following her at every step, V.I. finds all her certainties under threat, but takes the investigation all the way to its frightening end.

Sara Paretsky’s groundbreaking mystery series about Chicago private investigator V.I. Warshawski debuted in 1982 and is still going strong. She is a co-founder of Sisters in Crime (worldwide organization supporting women writers), a sought-after public speaker and the 2015 president of the Mystery Writers of America. This book is the first comprehensive reference work on Paretsky, providing an overview of the Warshawski novels and short stories, her other novels, a volume of collected essays, her anthologies and journalism. Special attention is paid to the character of Warshawski—the tough, street-smart detective who challenges stereotypical representations of women in crime fiction—and to the significance of the Chicago setting. A guide to the scholarly and critical debates is included, along with discussion of media adaptations and references to key websites.

Προκειμένου να διαλευκανθεί η υπόθεση το ταχύτερο δυνατόν και χωρίς άλλες απώλειες, ο Αρχηγός της Αστυνομίας συστήνει την επίλεκτη Ομάδα Άλφα. Αν και ετερόκλητο σύνολο, η ομάδα καλείται να συλλάβει τον «Δολοφόνο των Ισχυρών», που τρυπώνει στα σαλόνια τους χωρίς να αφήνει ίχνη, ακούει τζαζ παραμονεύοντας στο σκοτάδι και σκοτώνει πάντα με δύο πυροβολισμούς στο κεφάλι. Οι έρευνες οδηγούν σε διαφορετικούς δρόμους· από τις τράπεζες και την ιστιοπλοΐα ως τη ρώσικη μαφία και έναν θρυλικό αυτοσχεδιασμό του τζαζίστα Τελόνιους Μονκ … Misterioso Με χειρουργική ακρίβεια ο Άρνε Νταλ ανατέμνει τη σύγχρονη κοινωνική πραγματικότητα και γράφει ένα σφιχτό και συναρπαστικό αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα, το οποίο αγαπήθηκε από εκατομμύρια αναγνώστες σε όλο τον κόσμο.
