The wonderful thing about Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski novels is that they are exacly that: novels. Ambitious books with complex story lines that make us look more closely at the world around us and confront us with ethical dilemmas. I don't think it's a stretch to say she is the Charles Dickens of our time, balancing entertainment and a fight for a more just world.

Dead Land is no exception. Warshawski finds herself attending a community group meeting in order to see the soccer team coached by her goddaughter receive end-of-season recognition. This moves Warshawski into the middle of a particularly deadly international scheme. I don't want to say more because I don't want to spoil things for other readers, but this book is remarkable.

Do yourself the kindness of picking up a copy of Dead Land as soon as it's released in April. The rewards of this novel are manifold.

I received a free electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via EdelweissPlus. The opinions are my own. ( )
