Critical Mass: A V.I. Warshawski Novel

Paretsky's crime novel turns quickly from a simple missing-persons case into one involving national security, intellectual-property patent law, corrupt local officials, drug lords, and wartime family secrets. It is as much a breathless mystery as a historical delving into science and wartime academic politics. An intellectual mystery that will please the author's many fans. [See Prepub Alert, 4/29/13.]
