Blackwell North Amer
Her office building is falling down, the unpaid bills are mounting up. V. I. Warshawski needs a lucrative case and needs it fast. Instead, her most important client demands that she find a community service job to keep his computer-hacking son out of jail.
At the same time, V.I. is worried about a homeless family she found in the basement of her office building. Her search for emergency shelter sends her to Home Free, a charitable organization for the homeless headed by an old college flame. She's puzzled by Home Free's cold response, and even more troubled when they start giving the runaround to a group of tradeswomen she knows.
Hard up for money, V.I. resists investigating Home Free until one of its board members is murdered in the detective's own office. The track she follows leads her to the trail of tormented runaways, abused spouses, and a cynical financial fraud that stretches from Chicago's banks to the halls of Congress.
As she nears the dramatic climax of her punishing case, with her emotional and physical resources taxed to the limit, V.I. finds she must choose between her private happiness and her sense of justice...and learns that the hardest questions she must answer are the ones she asks herself.
Tunnel Vision marks the eighth appearance of V. I. Warshawski, who's been called "the most engaging woman in detective fiction since Dorothy Sayers's Harriet Vane" (Newsweek), "the detective mystery fans have been waiting for" (Time), and "a gumshoe for modern times" (People).
