V.I.'s battleaxe Aunt Rosa is under investigation by the FBI and SEC after counterfeit stock certificates were found at St. Albert's Priory, where she serves as treasurer. As malicious as her aunt is, V.I. knows she's not dishonest, so V.I. vows to protect her from taking the fall. But V.I. starts questioning the strength of her family ties when a menacing voice on the phone threatens to throw acid into her eyes if she doesn't butt out. The stakes are high as she begins to sniff out a connection between Chicago's most powerful institutions: the Church and the Mob.
Excellent - as only Sara Paretsky can be. Flawless presentation of complex characters, familial and friendship relationships, mystery and mayhem. A great read.
Younger authors take note - before spellcheck was invented, quality writers relied upon their own intelligence and proofreading abilities to ensure proper grammar, punctuation, etc.
