Description
"V.I. Warshawski is back—intelligent, tough, sarcastic and trouble-prone as ever....Body Work isn't just a satisfying whodunnit; it's a rich, well-written why-dunnit, striking some surprising chords that will resonate long after you finish the final page."—St. Louis Post-DispatchChicago's Club Gouge attracts an eclectic audience, from bohemian types to Ukranian mobsters to young men just back from the war. And tonight, V.I. Warshawski is in the crowd too. The edgy stage show stars The Body Artist, who invites audience members to draw on her naked flesh. But things get a lot edgier when a woman sketches a picture on the Body Artist—and one of the veterans flies into a drunken rage. Next thing V.I. knows, she's cradling the woman's dying body in an alley, and a PTSD-stricken soldier is presumed guilty. But he's also comatose after a drug overdose, and the mystery of what exactly set him off—and what kinds of shady activities are really happening at Club Gouge—will lead V.I. to a truth as explosive as the IEDs that lurk on the roadsides of Iraq.Bonus in this Edition: A Short Story Featuring V.I. Warshawski
