Warshawski thriller, Indemnity Only, the Chicago-based author has carved out a reputation as one of the leading lights in the mystery and thriller genre.

The bestselling V.I. Warshawski novels have dazzled readers and earned the acclaim of critics everywhere. “V.I. Warshawski rules,” writes Newsweek, crowning her “the most engaging woman in detective fiction.” Of V.I.’s creator, the Chicago Tribune says “Sara Paretsky has no peer.” Now Paretsky brings her incomparable storytelling brilliance to her most powerful Warshawski novel yet. Total Recall follows the Chicago P.I. on a road that winds back more than fifty years — and into an intricate maze of wartime lies, heartbreaking secrets, and harrowing retribution. For V.I., the journey begins with a national conference in downtown Chicago, where angry protesters are calling for the recovery of Holocaust assets. Replayed on the evening news is the scene of a slight man who has stood up at the conference to tell an astonishing story of a childhood shattered by the Holocaust — a story that has devastating consequences for V.I.’s cherished friend and mentor, Lotty Herschel. Lotty was a girl of nine when she emigrated from Austria to England, one of a group of children wrenched from their parents and saved from the Nazi terror just before the war broke out. Now stunningly — impossibly — it appears that someone from that long-lost past may have returned. With the help of a recovered-memory therapist, Paul Radbuka has recently learned his true identity. But is he who he claims to be? Or is he a cunning impostor who has usurped someone else’s history ... a history Lotty has tried to forget for over fifty years?As a frightened V.I. watches her friend unravel, she sets out to help in the only way she can: by investigating Radbuka’s past. Already working on a difficult case for a poor family cheated of their life insurance, she tries to balance Lotty’s needs with her client’s, only to find that both are spiraling into a whirlpool of international crime that stretches from Switzerland and Germany to Chicago’s South Side. As the atrocities of the past reach out to engulf the living, V.I. struggles to decide whose memories of a terrible war she can trust, and moves closer to a chilling realization of the truth — a truth that almost destroys her oldest friend.With fierce emotional power, Sara Paretsky has woven a gripping and morally complex novel of crime and punishment, memory and illusion. Destined to become a suspense classic, Total Recall proves once again the daring and compelling genius of Sara Paretsky.
  • Am addicted to the V.I. Warshawski series and will read all 18 books. Sara Paretsky is a fabulous writer. At times she refers to an event from an earlier story. When she does this she gives a short explanation but not to the point that you feel you would have to read the story pertaining to the situation. Your interest is only peaked. I enjoy reading about Warshawski's adventures. Am quite amazed at the imagination of Sara Paretsky as in each book she picks completely different subject material for the plot. Love a mystery and have enjoyed all Sara's books. If you enjoy a mystery, read them in sequence and you won't be sorry.

  • She never fails to give you a good read - I read some of her earlier works and then she fell off my radar when she was on a hiatus of sorts until I came across some of her books on a clearance table at a local bookstore - I bought one to catch up with her and was not disappointed, I then caught up the rest of the series with her Kindle editions. The only CON to her books is the higher than normal Kindle price - I wanted to finish the series and was glad I did BUT I feel she needs to get in line with her Kindle edition prices

    Some have complained about her liberal views coming through the book - they are part of the character - I for one am glad to read something other than cookie cutter detective stories

  • I am a Paretsky fan, so saying I love one of her book is not unusual. I've read may 10 or more of them. Saying it is possibly at the top of that list so far, that's says it's the best of her best. I was not sure when she started why she chose the very different format for this book. But she nailed it. Excellent execution of a tricky format. It's also great to get in at the street level of people's lives. We now know so much more about specific characters that are a critical part of V.I.'s life and support system. I'm reading her books in no order, but I can't wait to have time to read another.

  • There are too many characters to keep track of. The main character is so disorganized that it drove me crazy and it is much too long.

  • Let me start by saying I LOVE the VI Warshawski series! This is the 11th in the series and I'm reading them all in order. I've really enjoyed the first ten but I am struggling to even finish this one! I sure hope the rest are better! Please don't make this be your first VI Warshawski or it will probably be your last!

  • No writer can compete with Sara Paretsky at her best, and she is at her best with Total Recall.

  • I am a big fan of V.I., but the background concerning her dear friend Lotty's post war years was a bit difficult to parse through, let alone hook up with the story-line of reparations, fraud, etc. Still a good read, just not my favorite of the series.

  • Great Product
