The voices here include  professional crime solvers who take you from the mean  streets of V.I. Warshawskis  Chicago in a case of music and murder... to the  California freeway where Kinsey Millhones beloved VW  skids into a shooting... to the gang-held turf of  Sharon says mums the word. And then there are  mothers, grandmothers, battered wives, and social  workers -- ordinary women in extraordinary situations  whose voices reveal contemporary life as seen  through a womans eye. From the opening tale of a girl  down-and-out in London and what she steals from a  corpse... to the final story of a summer vacation  in the Berkshires, complete with romance and  sudden death... this unique collection brings us great  mystery writing that engages both our intellects  and our hearts.
