Publisher's Summary

When Chicago Black Hawks hockey legend Boom Boom Warshawski drowns in Lake Michigan, his private-eye cousin, the intrepid V.I. Warshawski, questions the accidental death report and rumors of suicide. Armed with a bottle of Black Label and a Smith & Wesson, V.I. follows a trail of violence and corruption to the center of the Windy City's powerful shipping industry. Dodging attempts on her life with characteristic grit and humor, V.I. wends her way through a maze of grain elevators and thousand-ton freighters, ruthless businessmen, and gorgeous ballerinas, to ferret out Boom Boom's killers before they take her out of the picture - permanently.

Enjoy the book by Sara Paretsky. V.I. is always getting into one scape after another. In this one she is on a ship that blows up in a lock. Jean Smart did a great job reading this story. For some reason this book would not play on my Ipod Nano and I had to listen to it off the computer.

- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."

Continues to impress.

Sara Paretsky continues to impress with great stories and a strong woman who stands up for herself. In addition each and ever book I have read or listen to so far also manages to comment on some social issue, making a good read in to a great one.
