    Feisty Chicago private eye Vic ‘V.I.’ Warshawski is used to getting mixed up in complicated cases. But when three million dollars in share certificates are stolen from a Dominican priory, she really doesn’t want to get involved.

Against her better judgement, Vic gets drawn in, only to be suddenly called off the case.
