Brush Back


The latest novel by Sara Paretsky does not disappoint its reader. V.I.Warshawski is back to investigate an old murder and prove the convicted killer, a tough elderly woman from the old neighborhood, was falsely accused of beating her daughter to death twenty-five years ago. V.I. is investigating as a favor to a once friend of hers, Frank Guzzo,who asks her to clear his mother’s name. But it gets nasty when Frank’s mom, a.k.a. Stella Guzzo, starts publicly accusing V.I.’s revered cousin, Boom-Boom, a famous hockey player now deceased, as the murderer. The novel weighs in at a hefty 459 pages, but is worth the read for fans of Paretsky.
