"Paretsky is careful and conscientious...and even her subplots are loaded with provocative ideas."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note The last thing V.I. Warshawski was expecting when she showed up at Chicago's Club Gouge was that she'd wind up cradling a dying performance artist in an alley. A PTSD-stricken soldier is presumed guilty of the murder, but it's up to V.I. to find out what kinds of shady activities are really happening at Club Gouge...
