Sara Paretsky's Body Work
I just bought Sara Paretsky's "Body Work" from B&N and it was really good! Her last two novels were so shaky that I almost swore off buying more, and I'm really glad I didn't. She's back and better than ever with this new book in the V.I. Warshawski series. This story has another Iraq war tie-in, although it's much more complex than just war corruption--art, drugs, and mobsters are involved as well.
Definitely worth the bucks. Too bad I didn't know she was in town a few weeks ago; I would have loved to have heard her speak.
