Publisher's Summary

The new VI Warshawski novel from the New York Times best-selling author pits acclaimed detective VI Warshawski against some of today's most powerful figures. 

Legendary sleuth VI Warshawski returns to the Windy City to save an old friend's nephew from a murder arrest. The case involves a stolen artifact that could implicate a shadowy network of international criminals. As VI investigates, the detective soon finds herself tangling with the Russian mob, ISIS backers and a shady network of stock scams and stolen art that stretches from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East. 

In Shell Game, nothing and no one are what they seem except for the detective herself, who loses sleep, money and blood but remains indomitable in her quest for justice.

Laborious

I have been trying to work out how old VI Warshawski is, I think this book would put her at 61 which honestly is a bit old for all the shenanigans she gets up to. However it was all put in to context when I realised it was being read by one of the golden girls. It was very long winded and over complex. Not as good as her earlier work.

Awful

I love Sarah Paretsky novels, however, this reader’s voice is totally unsuitable. She sounds about 80 years old instead of a young, sexy woman. I couldn’t listen to it.
