Sometimes, time doesn't heal all wounds...

When a young woman named Sabrina disappears without a trace in Kansas, private investigator V.I. Warshawski knows she must act fast. But when she discovers Sabrina close to death in a drug house, the locals don't take kindly to her - and Sabrina's mother becomes suspicious. V.I. finds herself under the sharp gaze of the FBI - and the men running the county's opioid distribution. And when a dead body surfaces a few days later, V.I. is pitched headlong into a battle between the locals - with roots that date all the way back to the American Civil War.

The war might be over, but its legacy remains - and V.I.'s survival depends on keeping one step ahead in a game she doesn't even know she's playing...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Warshawski remains in top form as she ages; battered some by life, perhaps a bit more acerbic and wryly cynical, but still a keen observer and first-person chronicler. As was the case with the 21 volumes that preceded it, Pay Dirt is unputdownable, a worthy addition to one of the finest series in modern suspense fiction. - BookPage

Paretsky's beloved Warshawski series remains exhilarating and profoundly illuminating; count on a slew of requests for her latest triumph - Starred Booklist Review

Suspension of disbelief is not required to enjoy a Paretsky novel. You know from page one that V. I. Warshawski is the real deal, as large as life and twice as natural, up there with Sam Spade and Jack Reacher. PAY DIRT treats us to a new side of her personality, still smart, brave and witty, yet a shade more cautious in middle age. An intricate plot with roots going back to the American Civil War makes it required reading. I loved it. - Peter Lovesey, author of the PETER DIAMOND series
