“The thing about Sara Paretsky is, she’s tough—not because she observes the bone-breaker conventions of the private-eye genre but because she doesn’t flinch from examining old social injustices others might find too shameful (and too painful) to dig up.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Doctors take days off—why not PIs?” V.I. Warshawski demands. But when America’s hardest-working private eye goes clubbing, a stranger is shot and dies in her arms.

V.I. has been visiting Club Gouge, Chicago’s edgiest nightspot, where a woman known as the Body Artist turns her naked body into a canvas for the audience to paint on.

The show attracts all kinds of people, from a menacing off-duty cop to Ukrainian mobsters and Iraq war vets—and V.I.’s impetuous cousin, Petra. A tormented young painter shows up, too, and the intricate designs she creates on the Body Artist drive one of the vets into a violent rage.

When the painter is shot, the cops figure it’s an easy collar—PTSD vet goes off the rails, stalks then kills young woman. But the vet’s family hires V.I. to clear his name, and the detective uncovers a chain of ugly truths that stretches all the way from Iraq to Chicago’s South Side.

Is this what catching the plague is like? You keep ignoring the symptoms and reading the warning signs until it's too late? Ashes, ashes, we all fall down? I keep reading these books hoping the main character will grow up enough or someone will put her in a ducking straight jacket. Those poor dogs, I'm gonna hurt this be ach myself if for nothing else, the embarrassment of rating herself better than them. Keep the your clothes on, Vic. The VI thing is and always has been stupid. In every book, there are fifteen times ,a good Tec would have handed it all to the police or the feds, and made it a believable story. It's a good chase but I prefer some reality here and there. I quit reading this author 25 years ago, wish I had stuck to my guns but Sue died & I was briefly entertained...
Since I have read all of her novels up to and including this one, upon finishing it I thought it was the best, but then I don't remember every single one well enough to make that claim. I give five stars rarely, but I think this deserves it for the level of imagination and the issues challenged and solved. I am surprised, upon reading some reviews, comments about being weary of the very tiresome character, niece Petra. I think that is funny. Surely Vic, herself, is one of the most contentious characters ever created who is good rather than evil. And over the many novels, every one of her relatives included are selfish, demanding, and arrogant except for Vic's mother, father, and cousin she ran with as a child/teenager. Her relatives are outrageous so it is hard to believe that Petra is any different--and, she is a teenager (barely in age but definitely in immaturity) who has encountered the joys and evils of the big city. Perhaps it is good to remember that Vic's neighbor's name is Mr. Contreras--and he is not nearly as contrary as Vic herself, but then he is contrary while he tries to protect her from her own impulsiveness and daring which verges on a death-wish.
So, yes, I could do without Petra's irritating behavior, but then perhaps a joy awaits the readers as she grows up and becomes, hopefully MUCH less self-centered.
I have read all of the Sara Paretsky novels watching V I' s character grow as she has aged. This, as all the others grabbed me, took me into her non stop whirl of a world filled with nasty as well as very likable characters. I read until all the wee hours of the morning then continued after breakfast, lunch, and dinner ignoring everything and everyone around me. How I want V I to continue her exciting life of saving the characters and bringing the nasties to justice!! However, maybe it's time she slowed down a bit and marry Jake!! I'm completely torn apart about one of my favorite detectives!! Please Ms. Paretsky, solve my dilemma!!
It pains me to write this review because it's going to be negative and I am a great fan of Sara Paretsky and the V.I. Warshawski series (and character). Since Paretsky's first V.I. Warshawski book came out, I have read her books and have sung their praises to friends and family. Some of them are among the best of the genre and the Warshawski character is great. However, this one, Body Work, was just not up to Paretsky's usual standard. It was dull. Dull! Hard to imagine a Paretsky mystery being dull, but this was dull, plodding, laborious, repetitious, silly, forced, pedantic and odd. I will always buy a new Paretsky book, but this one was a disappointing way to spend reading time and that is a painful acknowledgment because I usually look forward to a delicious Paretsky/Warshawski read.
A complex tale of seemingly disparate story lines from Corporate greed in the Iraq war to shockingly uncomfortable but alluring nude performance art. Paretsky has VI questioning her basic character & actions; providing uncharacteristic introspection into her life. And a new love interest that will make you cry at the end.
Skillfully done!
She never fails to give you a good read - I read some of her earlier works and then she fell off my radar when she was on a hiatus of sorts until I came across some of her books on a clearance table at a local bookstore - I bought one to catch up with her and was not disappointed, I then caught up the rest of the series with her Kindle editions. The only CON to her books is the higher than normal Kindle price - I wanted to finish the series and was glad I did BUT I feel she needs to get in line with her Kindle edition prices

Some have complained about her liberal views coming through the book - they are part of the character - I for one am glad to read something other than cookie cutter detective stories
V.I. Warshawski is back, along with Mr. Contreas, cousin Petra, and of course, her two labs. Petra has taken a job as a waitress in a club that has unique entertainment. Using her "charm" she cajoles V.I. into coming to see the show. A young woman sits on stage and allows patrons to paint her. While a particularly obnoxous Russian paints red numbers on her back, a lovely young woman paints a lovely face along with a strange symbol and a veteran who has just returned from Iraq goes berzerk. His friends finally get him out of the club. When the young woman leaves the club, she's shot and killed. The police attempt to arrest the veteran and he ends up shot. While he's under arrest and in the hospital, his father hires V.I. to prove his son innocent and find the real killer. As V.I. investigates, Petra keeps getting under foot, irritating V.I. and adding touch of comedy for the reader. And V.I.'s romance with Bass player Jake, escalates. There's plenty of action and confusion about who is the killer and why the young woman was killed. This is Paretsky at her best. The novel left me hungry for more V.I.Warshaski. This one will keep you awake at night.
Murder mysteries are all the better when you cannot figure out the plot until the very last. Sara Paretsky can always craft a story that makes you believe all along you know what is going on, until those last few pages, when your realize she got you again! Got your interest and appreciation for a story well told! Enjoy!
