  • Paromjit
    I was utterly thrilled to be reading the latest in Sara Paretsky's iconic V.I. Warshawski series set in a Chicago that, by now, I feel I know rather well. Paretsky writes more than crime fiction, she captures the current social and political waters of the US, as can be seen here where the horror of the repercussions of the Trump presidency is laid bare with its impact on the poor, the migrants and refugees, living in fear, and the draconian and h...

    3.5 stars.Sara Paretsky has long been one of my “must read” authors and “Shell Game” is a fine follow up to her previous novel, the brilliant “Fallout.” All of the books in this nineteen book series are well worth reading. They don’t have to be read in order, but I would encourage readers to do so, beginning with book #1 “Indemnity Only.”

    I thought Shell Game was very good. I enjoyed Sara Paretsky’s early books but I haven’t read one for many years. I’m pleased to say that she’s still as good as ever.Here, Vic is drawn into two apparently separate investigations involving friends and family as a young great-nephew of a close friend is suspected of murder while a niece (sort of – it’s complicated) comes to her because her sister has vanished. A complex plot develops inv...

    I would like to thank the publishers HarperCollins for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book. This is one of the best VI Warshawski novels that I've read, and believe me, I've read them all! I am a huge fan of Sara Parettsky. She has received both the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America, and the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award from the Crime Writers Association of Great Britain. She is one of only four authors to ...

    I fell in love with V.I. the first time I read a mystery featuring her. Sara Paretsky has never let me down. This time one of Vic’s nieces is in trouble and she has to find her in time.

    V.I. Warshawski is on the case! Well, cases. In one she's trying to clear the name of Felix, the nephew of a close friend - Felix is a suspect in the murder of a man who happens to have his contact information in his pocket, even though Felix denies knowing him. In another case she's contacted by her niece, Harmony, who has traveled from Portland to Chicago to ask for V.I.'s help in locating Harmony's sister, Reno, who has gone missing. Warshawsk...
  • Lonna Pierce
    Paretsky is at the top of her game with this topical Chicago-based detective story (V. I. Warshawski's 19th) involving ICE, Russian thugs, and a payday loan company investment ripoff of poor folks by wealthy 1% lawyers and amoral financiers. Victoria has two puzzling cases that involve Middle Eastern university students, stolen artifacts, sexual exploitation, and a gruesome murder. The 385 suspenseful pages seem ripped from the headlines and Vic'...

    I have read all of Sara Paretsky's books and liked this one very much. Since I work for an independent bookseller, a copy was provided, no review required but suggested. V. I. Warshawski stands tall and true in this story, torn between several problems with missing people and threats. A taut and well written story...thanks Ms. Peretsky for another great read!

    VI is at her best here. I loved the plot - complicated but not too out there. I felt it even had a somewhat happy ending. I loved how the two cases she is pursuing come together. Another win.
