Publisher's Summary

The 12th V.I. Warshawski novel from one of America's foremost writers of crime fiction, combining contemporary issues, social injustice and fast-paced suspense.  

Death, conspiracy and burning buildings - coming home wasn't meant to be like this. 

A dangerous, depressed place reeking of bad memories, South Chicago is a neighbourhood private investigator V.I. Warshawski left a long time ago. But now she's back, drawn to the streets of her childhood once again to do a favour for a friend.  

It was never going to be easy - and when the mother of a local girl asks her to look into claims of sabotage at the factory where she works, V.I. quickly finds herself caught up in something far more sinister.  

They say home is where the heart is, but now, as she lies by the roadside with a piece of hot, twisted metal embedded in her shoulder, looking up at the factory's smouldering remains, Warshawski is beginning to wonder whether a trip down memory lane was such a good idea after all....
