Textul de pe ultima copertă

Before there was Lisbeth Salander, before there was Stephanie Plum, there was V.I. Warshawski.
For more than three decades, Sara Paretsky has entertained millions of readers with her acclaimed series starring investigator V.I. Warshawski. One of the greatest mystery writers of all time, Paretsky has been honored with virtually every major award in the genre and has earned praise from critics, fans, and fellow authors alike. P.D. James proclaimed, “No other crime writer has so powerfully and effectively combined a well-crafted detective story with the novel of social realism.”
In Fallout, Paretsky takes her hero—Victoria Iphigenia by birth, V.I. by profession, and Vic to her friends—on her very first case out of Chicago, when the hunt for a vanished film student and a faded Hollywood star leads her to Kansas. Accompanied by her dog, V.I. tracks the pair through a university town, across fields dotted with Cold War—era missile silos . . . and into a past riven by long-simmering racial tensions. She hopes her search will yield the key to the mysteries of the present, but every answer V.I. finds unveils another puzzling question—and leads to more dead bodies. And in her most baffling case to date, not even the seasoned V.I. is safe.
Suspenseful and provocative, witty and intelligent, Fallout finds Sara Paretsky and V.I. Warshawski working at the height of their powers. 


Fallout is the best yet in one of our genre’s crucial, solid-gold, best-ever series. Paretsky is a genius, and she’s never afraid to dig a little deeper.”
“Sara Paretsky is a legend, and Fallout is her finest novel to date- -- an extraordinary read from an extraordinary author. If you haven’t read her yet, now is the time.”
“V.I. Warshawski is one of my all-time favorite investigators. Doesn’t get any better than this!
“Even out of her Chicago comfort zone in pursuit of a faded missing actress and a young filmmaker in Fallout, legendary V.I. Warshawski is as dogged and ferocious as ever. So is Sara Paretsky, who is at the top of her crime novel game.”
Simply superb! As a fan of V.I. Warshawski from the very beginning, I can say without a doubt that Fallout finds both author and protagonist at the top of their games.”
“An astonishing tour de force -- thrilling, moving, illuminating -- from an author of matchless intelligence, craft, and power. This is why Sara Paretsky reigns as one of the all-time greats.”
“A road trip with V.I. Warshawski? Sign me up! What a thrill to join her on a missing-persons hunt that quickly turns dark and dangerous. Sara Paretsky’s legendary P.I. is at the top of her game. Everyone will want to go along for this ride.”
Fallout is exactly what it promises: proof that so much of the pain in our present is from mistakes in our past. This book has a soul. Come see a master at work.”
“Writing advance praise for Sara Paretsky is like writing a job recommendation for Bill Gates. Paretsky is the gold standard for novels dealing with crime and its consequences.”
For me, the most remarkable of the moderns is Sara Paretsky. ...No other crime writer has so powerfully and effectively combined a well-crafted detective story with the novel of social realism.”
A distinct pleasure.”
“Wonderful company and a rich discovery awaiting those who have yet to meet her. ”
“The best on the beat. ”
“Undoubtedly one of the best-written characters in mystery fiction. ”
