From the Publisher:
An audience-participation performance by a controversial artist is disrupted by a violent outburst culminating in the artist's murder days later, prompting V. I. Warshawski to prove the innocence of an Iraqi war veteran charged with the crime. (Suspense). By the award-winning author of Hardball. Simultaneous.
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.
