A SUNDAY TIMES CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH PICK ****** The new V.I. Warshawski novel from the New York Times bestselling author pits acclaimed detective V.I. Warshawski against some of today's most powerful figures. 'The 19th Warshawski novel is also a panoramic vision of Chicago at a time when the city is so polarised that decent people don't know who to trust' The Sunday Times 'Paretsky is a genius' Lee Child Legendary sleuth V.I. Warshawski returns to the Windy City to save an old friend's nephew from a murder arrest. The case involves a stolen artifact that could implicate a shadowy network of international criminals. As V.I. investigates, the detective soon finds herself tangling with the Russian mob, ISIS backers, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen art that stretches from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East. In SHELL GAME, nothing and no one are what they seem, except for the detective herself, who loses sleep, money, and blood, but remains indomitable in her quest for justice.

Praise for Shell Game - : Paretsky is brilliant at juggling strands, but the 19th Warshawski novel is also a panoramic vision of Chicago at a time when the city is so polarised that decent people don't know who to trust - The Sunday Times All done with Paretsky's customary skill and a fierce sense of outrage against injustices at all levels - Shots Mag This is a strong brew - Guardian Subtle and effective [...] the reader is left with a brilliant portrait of today's America - The Times Exciting, enraging and ultimately reassuring, Shell Game is a great addition to a tremendous series - Literary Review Praise for the V.I Warshawski novels - : Fallout is the best yet in one of our genre's crucial, solid-gold, best-ever series. Paretsky is a genius, and she's never afraid to dig a little deeper
