When VI Warshawski returns to her Chicago office after a client visit at Stateville, the last thing she expects is exactly what she finds. Her once tidy work space looks as though a hurricane tore through it. Ripped documents, upended drawers, and even pictures from the wall have been strewn about. But the most chilling find is a bracelet belonging to Warshawki's adored cousin Petra. A video surveillance camera reveals that three persons entered the premises-but where is Petra? The cops spring into action, calling it a possible kidnapping, possible assault, and possible aggravated burglary. Has Warshawski's connection to a group known as the Anacondas put those she loves in danger?

"V.I. Warshawski's latest case may be the most frustrating she's encountered. The client is irritable. The job, finding the harpy's son, missing for 40 years, should be easy but isn't. And when Warshawski asks people about the missing man, they get angry and try to kill her. With her gravelly voice, narrator Susan Ericksen sounds like Kathleen Turner, who played Warshawski on the big screen. Ericksen ramps up the excitement in the story with a memorable voice that is intense and breathless. She's equally convincing as a gangbanger, a gentle nun, a kindly neighbor, and a stroke victim. Each character shines as an individual, making this one of the best Sara Paretsky productions ever. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
