    V. I. Warshawski may have left her old South Chicago neighborhood, but she learns that she cannot escape it. When V. I. takes over coaching duties of the girls' basketball team at her former high school, she faces an ill-equipped, ragtag group of gangbangers, fundamentalists, and teenage moms, who inevitably draw the detective into their family woes.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fire Sale to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book, so I cannot say.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    V.I. is my fav; and the reason I purchased the novel.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Though I'm sure the reader did her best, (she also had to contend w/ the fact that Kathy Bates has also narrated Ms. Paretsky's V.I. books), I would recommend that she give V.I. back her "teeth". Her vocal personification of V.I.'s character is just too girly-girl to be believed. Also, it might be good for her to listen back to Jean Smart's rendition of this series' characters. I felt that the subtleties and nuances of the various accents was missing.


    Any additional comments?

    Offer more books in this series w/ Jean Smart as the narrator, if that is possible. :0)
