Carmilla, Queen of the Night, is a shape-shifting raven whose fictional exploits thrill girls all over the world. When tweens in Chicago’s Carmilla Club hold an initiation ritual in an abandoned cemetery, they stumble on an actual corpse, a man stabbed through the heart in a vampire-style slaying.The girls include daughters of some of Chicago’s most powerful families: the grandfather of one, Chaim Salanter, is among the world’s wealthiest men; the mother of another, Sophy Durango, is running for the United States Senate. For V. I. Warshawski, the questions multiply faster than the answers. Is the killing linked to a hostile media campaign against Sophy Durango? Or to Chaim Salanter’s childhood in Nazi-occupied Lithuania? As V.I. struggles to answer these questions, she finds herself fighting enemies who are no less terrifying for being all too human.

Another interesting story from Paretsky
- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."
Authors Political Views
NO-I have listened or read all of Sara Paretskys books. She went to far with her political beliefs. I was looking forward to another V.I. story but, her political rantings ruined the story for me. I feel cheated, if I had wanted to read a book about politics in Chicago this is not the author I would have chosen.
Sadly, never again. I would love to have my credit back. I would use it to be entertained not preached to.
There are to many to list.
She is not the only author who has used their art work to try to influence their readers to their way of thinking. An author should do what they do best, write a good story, and stay out of the political ring.
