    Description

    Lee Child says she's "a genius".

    P. D. James called her "the most remarkable" of today's suspense writers.

    Stieg Larsson loved her work so much, he named her in his novels.

    And now Sara Paretsky returns with the most extraordinary novel of her legendary career: Fallout.

    Before there was Lisbeth Salander, before there was Stephanie Plum, there was V. I. Warshawski. To her parents she's Victoria Iphigenia. To her friends she's Vic. But to clients seeking her talents as a detective, she's V. I. And her new case will lead her from her native Chicago...and into Kansas, on the trail of a vanished film student and a faded Hollywood star.

    Accompanied by her dog, V. I. tracks her quarry through a university town, across fields where missile silos once flourished - and into a past riven by long-simmering racial tensions, a past that holds the key to the crimes of the present. But as the mysteries stack up, so does the body count. And in this, her toughest case, not even V. I. is safe.

    Exciting and provocative, fiercely intelligent and witty, Fallout is listening at its most enjoyable and powerful.

    "Narrator Susan Ericksen deftly portrays private investigator V.I. Warshawski... Ericksen's conversational style, skillful emotional range, and diverse accents enhance the production." ( AudioFile)

    VI goes on a Road Trip to Kansas

    This is a new episode (#18) in the Victoria Iphigenia Warshawski series. VI is hired to find August Verider who is accused of ransacking the gym he works. The trail leads to Lawrence, Kansas where events that took place at a 1983 demonstration have importance to her case. Vi has one of her dogs with her as her neighbor is on a trip. On the personal side, she receives a break-up e-mail from her boyfriend.

    The book is well written. The plot is complex with many subplots. Paretsky has her famous amusing dialogue which Susan Ericksen does flawlessly. VI gets herself into some life threating situations which is normal for her. Paretsky provides a tour of Lawrence, Kansas as well as Chicago. I am looking forward to the next book.

    I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible. Susan Ericksen does an excellent job narrating the book. Ericksen has narrated the last few book so she is becoming VI in my mind. Not all narrators have been able to do the subtle amusing dialogue that is Paretsky’s trademark. Ericksen is an actress and award-winning audiobook narrator.

    Interesting story- but a few annoying issues

    This is a good VI story, but there were a few things that rankled due to poor research by the author (on drug laws) and also editorial inconsistencies (continuity issues). Plus, the narrator mispronounced some key words and phrases. Took me awhile to figure out what she meant by “sea di sea” which was actually the abbreviation CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” I listened through to the end as Paretsky still writes a good story, but it’s not a great one.

    keep these coming

    I took a bit of a break from VI books, didn't like the narrator as I recall, but I enjoyed this one and the narrator wasn't shrill, and the humor of Ms Warshaski came through well, and the tale wasn't too didactic. It was good to see VI get out of Dodge, and the reopening of old wounds is a good way to tell a tale in a country still beset by past crimes and conflicts still unresolved.

    First time Paretsky listener

    Loved "Fallout" V. I. Warshawski. Never heard narrator before nor read any of Paretsky novels. I'm sold if the others are just as good. Loved the great narration. Easy to follow changes in voices to the character speaking. Enjoyed Pepe & V. I 's relationship.
    Great story development. Characters we're believable. Suspenseful. Comical in places. Loved V. I. 's "no one messes with me" attitude yet also her compassion. She was portrayed tough, but real. I'm ready to read another!

    Good book, awful narrator

    The story was interesting and it was what fans of VI Warshawski expect. The narration was awful. Most narrators now can get into character and tell the story in the first person. This narrator still uses strange pauses in sentences as if that enhances attention. And given that she was supposed to be playing a tough PI, her voice and style was wimpy and boring. I hope other VI books do not use this same narrator.

    Great Book!

    Sara Paretsky never fails to write an outstanding mystery. V. I. has always been a "real" lady, good or bad! Over the years this lady P.I. has gotten better and better at getting the job done. Susan Ericksen is an outstanding narrator! Hers is the voice of many heroines and it's always a pleasure to listen to her. I've sometimes listened to books just because of the narrator. She's one of those who has introduced me to authors I might not have "read."

    A C- story all the way!

    The book was twice as long as it needed to be. So many unnecessary characters. The supposed heroine constantly haranguing everyone is so tiresome. Typical formula! Same story as one written two decades ago.
