    Hard to Stop... Reading

    To start the V.I. Warshawski series backwards is a strange experience. My first contact with the work of Sara Paretski was in Total Recall, a very effective mixture of hardboiled police investigation and Kindertransport II World War literary drama. It was very good and I was compelled to continue so I got HARD TIME. Full hardboiled thriller, with so many things going on for Warshawski, that even if Paretski sometimes gives away what is going to happen by making the clues too obvious (the wrong folder where Vic puts the Life Story report, the special detective cameras, the t-shirt on Aguinaldo), it still baffles me the strenght of her prose. And well, the incredible names she finds for her characters, the spanish names are funny beyond borders. I was very happy, entertained and thrilled. Great book, great series, will continue with the next one.

    Hard time doing time

    Private investigator, V. I. Warshawski gets into trouble big time in this novel. She takes on three of the most powerful, corrupt and dangerous men in Chicago. After almost running over a woman's body in the street one night she has a bent cop trying to frame her for causing the injuries and death of the victim. It is this woman, an escapee from prison, who holds the clues to a good deal of the evil going on in the entertainment and media world of Chicago. There are nearly four hundred pages in this book and every one seems to drop Waqrshawski deeper into trouble. One of Paretsky's best.

    I could put it down...

    Sarah Paretsky has an agenda and while she has a right to do so,herstory suffers. I have enjoyed previous I.V. Warshawsky's outings but this one is so ridiculous that I could indeed put it down. Nothing makes sense, things happen and people do things only to advance the agenda-never the story. One star is too many.
