Consuelo is sixteen. Diabetic. And the daughter of a friend. When she goes into labor too early, even V. I.s wild drive to get her to the hospital cant save either Consuelo or her child. Soon V.I. is investigating possible malpractice at the emergency room - and falling for a doctor who works there. Mixing business and love is always bad medicine, but V.I. finds herself listening to her heart, not her head. And when a brutal murder and the violent destruction of a womans clinic put her at the center of a very dirty conspiracy, justice may be the only remedy for a hurt that cuts deep . . .and chills right to the bone . . . The plot [is] fast moving, the dialogue snappy, the premise for murder persuasive. This novel hasnt a single snag in its springs. - Chicago Sun-Times Paretsky is still the best . . .She doesnt pull punches. - The Washington Post Book World
