The performer known as the Body Artist takes the stage at Chicago''s Club Gouge and allows her audience to use her naked body as a canvas for their impromptu illustrations. Days later, the woman is shot outside the club and dies in V.I.''s arms. As V.I. seeks answers, her investigation will take her from the North Side of Chicago to the far reaches of the Gulf War.
Annotation:
On an unusual night out on the town, private investigator V.I. Warshawski witnesses a bizarre violent episode that connects to a murder. Keeping an eye her young cousin, Petra, V.I. tags along to an arty nightclub. There, an artist invites audience members to paint her nude body as part of a performance, but what one woman paints provokes an unexpectedly aggressive outbreak from an Iraq veteran. When a corpse turns up, the veteran becomes the primary suspect, and V.I.--who has a blossoming romance to think about, as well--gets asked to find out what's really going on.
