A New York Times Bestselling AuthorA V. I. Warshawski NovelNo one would accuse V. I. Warshawski of backing down from a fight, but there are a few she'd be happy to avoid. High on that list is tangling with Chicago political bosses. Yet that's precisely what she ends up doing when she responds to high-school crush Frank Guzzo's plea for help. Frank's mother did a full twenty-five years for bludgeoning his kid sister, Annie, to death. Newly released, Stella is looking for exoneration, so V.I. agrees to ask a few questions.
