Exclusive February offer: (by courtesy of the author)
Read the first chapter of a brand-new V.I. Warshawsky story here. Warshawsky is a good-looking woman in high heels, but also a hard-boiled detective who shoots first and asks questions afterwards, a true match for any male detective.
Famous American crime fiction writer Sara Paretsky is now blogging about books and politics, among other things. She has decided to share a short novel with the followers of her blog, and as I for one learned about this opportunity too late to find the first chapter, she has kindly given me and my blog guests a second chance!
