Praise for Sara Paretsky's previous novel, Fire Sale
'She is writing with the kind of passion for social justice that inspired Chandler and Hammett'
'Paretsky always forces her readers to think. . . At its best, crime fiction illuminates the society we live in, and Sara Paretsky proves yet again that she is one of the genre's most significant practitioners.'
'It's hard not to get caught up in her passion . . . Snappy dialogue, tight plotting and realistic situations make Paretsky's unapologetically politicised thrillers a pleasure to read, whatever your viewpoint.'
