Before there was Lisbeth Salander, before there was Stephanie Plum, there was V. I. Warshawski. To her parents, she is 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 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. Exciting and provocative, fiercely intelligent and witty, Fallout is reading at its most enjoyable and powerful.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Sara Paretsky is a legend, and Fallout is her finest novel to date—an extraordinary read from an extraordinary author.” Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Even out of her Chicago comfort zone in pursuit of a faded missing actress and a young filmmaker in Fallout, legendary V. I. Warshawski is as dogged and ferocious as ever.” C. J. Box, New York Times bestselling author
“Narrator Susan Ericksen deftly portrays private investigator V. I. Warshawski…Ericksen’s conversational style, skillful emotional range, and diverse accents enhance the production…Ericksen creates believable-sounding former antinuclear activists. And when a woman who tries to help Warshawski is obstructed by her venomous parents, Ericksen captures all the tension in their relationship. Ericksen is particularly adept at portraying spirited black folks of all ages.” AudioFile
