Shell Game

A V.I. Warshawski Novel
by Sara Paretsky
(*)(*)(*)( )( )(1)
Acclaimed detective V. I. Warshawski tackles a pair of
disturbing cases involving those closest to her in this
compelling and timely adventure that centers on some of
the most divisive and pressing issues of our time

When V. I Warshawski gets word that her close
friend and mentor Lotty Herschel’s nephew
has become a suspect in a murder, the legendary
detective will do everything she can to save him. The
cops found Felix Herschel’s name and phone number
on the unknown victim’s remains, but Felix insists he
doesn’t know why.

As Vic digs deeper, she discovers that the dead man
was obsessed with Middle Eastern archeology — the
first clue in a bewildering case that leads to a stolen
artifact and a shadowy network of international
criminals. But the trouble multiplies when Vic’s long-
lost niece, Reno, goes missing. A beautiful young
woman with a heartbreaking past and a promising
future, Reno is harboring a secret that may cost her her
life. V.I. can hear the clock ticking on her niece's safety
and is frantic in her efforts to find her.

Vic won’t leave any stone unturned until these very
personal cases are cleared—a complex investigation
that will entangle the Russian mob, ISIS backers, rogue
ICE agents, a nefarious corporation preying on the
poor, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen
antiquities stretching from Chicago to the East Indies
and the Middle East.

In Shell Game, no one can be trusted and nothing is
what it seems, except for the indomitable detective and
her thirst for justice.
