Sometimes, time doesn't heal all wounds...

When a young woman named Sabrina disappears without a trace in Kansas, private investigator V.I. Warshawski knows she must act fast. But when she discovers Sabrina close to death in a drug house, the locals don't take kindly to her - and Sabrina's mother becomes suspicious. V.I. finds herself under the sharp gaze of the FBI - and the men running the county's opioid distribution. And when a dead body surfaces a few days later, V.I. is pitched headlong into a battle between the locals - with roots that date all the way back to the American Civil War.

The war might be over, but its legacy remains - and V.I.'s survival depends on keeping one step ahead in a game she doesn't even know she's playing...

Reviews for Pay Dirt: the gripping new crime thriller from the international bestseller

Warshawski remains in top form as she ages; battered some by life, perhaps a bit more acerbic and wryly cynical, but still a keen observer and first-person chronicler. As was the case with the 21 volumes that preceded it, Pay Dirt is unputdownable, a worthy addition to one of the finest series in modern suspense fiction. * BookPage * Paretsky's beloved Warshawski series remains exhilarating and profoundly illuminating; count on a slew of requests for her latest triumph * Starred Booklist Review *
