Before there was Lisbeth Salander, before there was Stephanie Plum, there was V.I. Warshawski.
To her parents, she’s Victoria Iphigenia. To her friends, she’s Vic. But to clients seeking her talents as a detective, she’s V.I. And her new case will lead her from her native Chicago… and into Kansas, on the trail of a vanished film student and a faded Hollywood star.
Accompanied by her dog, V.I. tracks her quarry through a university town, across fields where missile silos once flourished–and into a past riven by long-simmering racial tensions, a past that holds the key to the crimes of the present.
But as the mysteries stack up, so does the body count. And in this, her toughest case, not even V.I. is safe.
