From the Publisher:
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...
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.
