When V. I. Warshawski is asked to find a man who’s been missing for four decades, a search that she figured would be futile becomes lethal. Old skeletons from the city’s racially charged history, as well as haunting family secrets—her own and those of the elderly sisters who hired her—rise up to brush her back from the plate with a vengeance. A young cousin whom she’s never met arrives from Kansas City to work on a political campaign; and a nun who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. dies without revealing crucial evidence. Afraid to learn that her adored father might have been a bent cop, V. I. still takes the investigation all the way to its frightening end.
