Chicago private eye V.I. Warshawski knows from the start that Consuelo Alvarado's baby is trouble. Consuelo is 16. Diabetic. And the daughter of a friend. When she goes into labor too early, even V. I.'s wild drive to get her to the hospital can't save either Consuelo or her child.
Soon V.I. is investigating possible malpractice at the emergency room - and falling for a doctor who works there. Mixing business and love is always bad medicine, but V.I. finds herself listening to her heart, not her head. And when a brutal murder and the violent destruction of a woman's clinic put her at the center of a very dirty conspiracy, justice may be the only remedy for a hurt that cuts deep...and chills right to the bone.
"Paretsky is still the best....She doesn't pull punches." (The Washington Post Book World)
"The plot [is] fast moving, the dialogue snappy, the premise for murder persuasive. This novel hasn't a single snag in its springs." (Chicago Sun-Times)

The narrator was excellent. She made the listener part of the story.

Susan Ericksen always does a remarkable job. Whether she's reading J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series or Sara Paretsky's stories, she makes the work interesting and engaging.
The dog - any heartstrings or tearjerk moment always seems to be about the dog. The poor thing knew his master was dead and just laid on the driveway next to the road.
