Vic Warshawski is a private investigator whose office building is being closed and whose bank account is feeling a bit slim. She finds a homeless mother and her children living in the basement of her office building and tries, but fails, to help them. She also gets involved an investigation into why her friends’ contracting company has lost funding. Another friend is found murdered in her office. Somehow this is all connected and Vic has to sort it all out. With the cops (including her boyfriend) not trusting her judgment on this case, she definitely has a struggle ahead of her.
While this is the 8th book in the V.I. Warshawski series, I had no trouble at all getting into the story and characters. It’s a long and complicated mystery here, and I truly enjoyed it. Vic is a great character and while she has her flaws, she is definitely an awesome lady. I will gladly read more in this series, to get to know her better.
