Indemnity Only

Indemnity Only is by Sara Paretsky. The first book in the V.I. Warshawski series. For those readers unfamiliar with V.I., she is the typical Chicago private detective, only she's a woman. In this, her first appearance in print, we find her meeting an anonymous client. The "client" gives a false name and asks her to find his son's girlfriend whose name is also false. When she attempts to locate the girl she finds a dead body instead; the son of a prominent banker. Solving his death leads her into the seedy world of insurance fraud, corrupt union leaders, and hit men. If you're a Philip Marlowe fan, you'll fall in love with V.I. as well.

Ratings: Adult - 8 out of 10 - P (profanity) - V (violence) - AC (mature thematic content).
