In this book, a soldier suffering from PTSD after three tours of duty in Iraq/Afghanistan, is accused of murder. VI is hired by the parents to clear him. What follows is highly entertaining, another well woven tale in the series. There's just enough wry humor to be satisfying.
What interested me most is VI's self-assessment. She's 50ish, no longer young, a point driven home by almost every other character. She's questioning her vocation as a private investigator, and asking what she has to show for her life. If there's another book in the series, it will be interesting to see if it's the last, and if so, how VI retires.

Well, I hate to say it, but Sara Paretsky has really lost her touch. It's been a long time since I've read a V. I. Warshawski, and I wish I had passed this one up. I don't know if would have been any better if I'd read it instead of listening to it. The story line was a good idea, but it just seems like it was tritely done. Practically everyone in the story was mean, argumentative, pissy, and any other adjective you can think of. Wow, even Vic's best friends and relatives were mean and argumentative. Really disappointed, wish I hadn't wasted one of my monthly credits. Sad.
