Publisher's Summary

Deadlock, V. I. Warshawski’s second case, involves the huge Great Lakes shipping industry. Once again the subject is murder - this time the “accidental death” of Boom-Boom Warshawski, an ex-hockey star and V. I.’s beloved cousin, who fell - or was pushed - off a rain-slicked pier on Chicago’s busy waterfront.
Convinced that Boom-Boom was in fact killed because of information he had uncovered about criminal doings on the shipping lines, V. I. begins a long and frustrating search for her cousin’s murderer. In the course of an investigation that takes her to a remote Canadian port city and a calamitous trip on a sabotaged freighter, V. I. finds all too many possible candidates for the killer, including a grain company executive involved in extortion; and rival heads of two shippers, one of whom is being blackmailed for his criminal past; a hockey player whose specialty is graft; and Boom-Boom’s lover, an icily beautiful dancer with expensive tastes in men and merchandise.

Loving V.I.

Book 2 is just as good as book one. Your attention is riveted by everyone in the story. Having just found these books so many years after they were written, they seem to have modern issues that are relevant today. Hope to keep reading all the V.I. series.

Susan Ericksen does it again!

Would you listen to Deadlock again? Why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the female hero with mystery and a great story that is easy to follow.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The interesting part of this story is about all the danger that VI gets herself into; and then how she gets out of it.

Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

My favorite character, performed by Susan Ericksen, was VI's best friend Lotty.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I would read this in one setting. <br/>
