9780340935149: Killing Orders

Killing Orders, V.I. Warshawski’s third adventure, starts when her great-aunt Rosa summons the detective to her cold suburban home. Rosa made V.I.’s childhood miserable and the detective resents the command to help her aunt prove she didn't embezzle five million dollars from a local Dominican priory. All hell breaks loose when a mysterious opponent tries to take Vic off the case by throwing acid in her eyes and burning down her apartment. And when a friend who’s involved in the case is brutally murdered, it begins to look as if Vic hasn’t got a prayer. But Warshawski continues to follow every lead, even when they point to some pretty unorthodox conclusions: Perhaps the Dominicans are covering up a financial scandal. Maybe the whole conspiracy is under the patronage of an international conglomerate, or of Don Pasquale, king of the Chicago mob. Worst of all, someone who’s close to Vic could be involved — her darkly handsome English lover, Roger Ferrant, or even Aunt Rosa herself.

From the Publisher:

V.I. Warshawski's latest case has alreasy opened up old wounds. But when a silky voice on the phone threatened to throw acid in her eyes, V.I. knew this one could finish her off with some brand-new ones. The sour-faced old aunt she had agreed to help was accused of stealing millions in stock certificates from a pious order of Dominican brothers. V.I. knew the woman was a witch, not a thief, and she soon smelled something rotten in the sanctum sanctorum of Chicago's most powerful movers and shakers -- the Church and the Mob. Now someone wants to see V.I. burn in hell. But this tough cookie of a private eye had her back up, a brand-new Smith & Wesson, and a daring plan to make the bad guys go to the devil first.

From the Back Cover:

From New York Times Bestselling Author Sara Paretsky comes another electrifying novel of suspense in her beloved V.I. Warshawski series...

They say blood is thicker than water. Private eye V.I. Warshawski has her doubts, especially when it comes to the bad blood between her and her great-aunt Rosa. But when the old lady reaches out, V.I. answers the call.

The good friars at St. Albertus Magnus Priory, Rosa’s long-time employers, have cashed in on valuable securities from their safe...only to discover they were counterfeits. Suspended under a cloud of suspicion, Rosa wants V.I. to clear her name. Exonerate a senior citizen who’s never missed Sunday mass? Easy enough—or so V.I. thinks before a mystery brought to her by new flame Roger Ferrant crosses paths with Rosa’s case.

The deeper V.I. digs, the more someone wants her to take her shovel and go home—someone who threatens to blind her with acid, and won’t stop there. Because corruption’s tentacles reach farther than V.I. imagined: from her family to Chicago’s infamous Family...and from a monastery’s hushed hallways to the highest echelons of the Church.
