Rain had turned the streets a shiny black. It coated windshields with a film that cut visibility to inches, and turned potholes into lakes that trapped unwary drivers. All month, Chicago had been hit by storms that put as much as three inches of water on the ground in an hour; but left the air as thick and heavy as a wet parka. Tonight's storm was one of the worst of the summer. I'd come up empty in.all the likely spots, bus stops, coffee shops, even the sleaziest nightclubs that might not card a bunch of tweens. I was about to give up when I saw lights flashing in the cemetery to my right. I pulled over and rolled down my window.

I LOVE V.I. Warshaski...her grit, her pushiness, her courage. Her in-your-face refusal to be bullied. Love everything about these stories!

Jumping into a long running series without reading any of the precursor novels is seldom a completely wise idea. This to it's credit does work well enough to be enjoyable, but it's obvious there has been a lot of backstory and characters that I wasn't familiar with - it felt like these had cropped up in previous books, but I'm wasn't sure to what degree.

VI has obviously been a successful (to various degrees) PI for some time. She becomes involved in a case going back some time to her childhood, where her friends and relations played with kids who went on to be part of the criminal underworld - some escaped and some remained. Now it looks like a long-forgotten crime is being remembered by the wrong people and pressure is brought on them to do 'one more' job.

Worth checking out eh beginning of the series to see how it develops I suspect this isn't the highlight.
