V.I. Warshawski may have left her old South Chicago neighborhood, but she learns that she cannot escape it. When V.I. takes over coaching duties of the girls' basketball team at her former high school, she faces an ill-equipped, ragtag group of gangbangers, fundamentalists, and teenage moms who inevitably draw the detective into their family woes.

While some crime/mystery novelists churn out a book a year and seem after a couple of them to be repeating their formula, Sara Paretsky stands out for her richly populated casts, continually developing main character, timely themes, complex plotting, and continual surprises for the reader.
