Sara Paretsky follows her instant New York Times bestseller Fallout—her most widely read novel in years—with an extraordinary adventure that pits her acclaimed detective, V.I. Warshawski, against some of today’s most powerful figures. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A multilayered mystery with lots of moving parts that all come together in a triumphant moment of truth and justice.” Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“The most soulful novel of her extraordinary career—the most urgent, the most haunting, the most satisfying.” A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Shell Game is a smart and engrossing international mystery to unravel that will keep readers wrapped up in its pages.” Criminal Element
“Warshawsky is an iconic sleuth, and in the recent novels she’s proven a savvy vehicle for exploring changing social (and criminal) currents in the Windy City, a city she’s come to define as surely as Marlowe once defined L.A.” Crime Reads
“An expertly woven tale of greed and impunity…True to form, V. I.’s latest tangle with white-collar crime’s violent underbelly will leave readers pondering the intersections of power, authority, and humanity.” Booklist (starred review)
“Riveting…Paretsky isn’t one to tiptoe around injustice, and this entry proves once again that she’s one of the sharpest crime writers on the scene today.” Publishers Weekly
“As ever, Paretsky manages to keep V. I. topical and culturally relevant, delving into fears of immigrant communities and the heavy hand ICE plays, while examining abuses levied by wealthy corporations against the poor…There’s plenty here to consider.” Library Journal
“Considerable pleasure comes from following the legendary heroine through an impenetrable maze of felonies knowing that you’re in a master’s hands.” Kirkus Reviews
