V.I.x3: Photo finish publicity stunts - A family sunday in the park based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
I enjoyed this book mainly because Paretsky is getting back to writing good stories rather than focusing on a political agenda. It was a refreshing break and I wish she could write her full length novels from this viewpoint. Stephanie Clanahan
