She's an excellent writer when she's actually telling the story. However, this book seems to be more about politics than anything else. Just as I would get into the story, she'd throw in a long rant about an issue. And, there are many. I gave up after 70 pages.

I read non-fiction about the issues of our day. I read fiction for a good story, not political screeds and paragraphs and pages filled with somebody's opinions on every hot button topic. Even though I agree with many of her points, it was tiresome and irritating.

Paretsky seems more interested in being a political commentator than a story teller.

Warshawski comes through again and she lives to tell about it. Lordy, I sort of agree with her neighbor who wants her out of the condo. Washawski is a problem, and yet her death-defying detective work is always done to help someone who really needs it. I’m glad I don’t have to write a synopsis for this book. Its like an octopus with tentacles reaching out in different places yet connected to one central body. I enjoyed this 20th novel in the series, and hope that Warshawski continues to survive and go after some bad guys in another book.
