Sinopsis:

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.

Descripción de la librería

Johnnycake Books trades in rare and collectible books of most kinds, principally in fields of literature, illustrated, childrens, architecture/design, gardening and photography. We try to offer books that are a little unusual, offbeat and unexpected: most have a strong visual or design appeal. Our descriptions present our inventory as creatively and colorfully as possible, with occassional editorial commentary. We regard condition of our books as critical to our service: most are very good or better, in collectible condition. We are generally conservative in describing a book, even if that means it doesn't sound as good as it actually might be. We welcome your comments directly at johnnycake@snet.net or visit our website www.johnnycakebooks.com. Best wishes in your book collecting. Dan Dwyer
