Publisher's Summary

Stubbornness has landed private eye V.I. Warshawski in big trouble at her Chicago office. With her grand old Loop building set to be razed, she's become a hold-out tenant amid frayed wiring and scary, empty corridors. Then she finds a homeless woman with three kids in the basement, and before she can rescue them, they disappear. Worst of all, she's been implicated in a murder - after the body of Deirdre Messenger, a prominent lawyer's wife, turns up sprawled across her desk.

V.I., who had volunteered with Deirdre at a women's shelter, suspects her death is linked to a case of upper-class domestic abuse so slickly concealed that the police refuse to believe it. Increasingly at odds with the cops, V.I. is blindly plunging ahead after the truth. And her path may lead to corruption at the highest levels or deep into the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago's streets, where secrets are hiding in the dark like a child's - or V.I.'s - worst nightmare.

Sara Paretsky and Susan Ericksen together - wow!

I love Paretsky's VI character, her street fighter instincts and her endearing cast of family. Put together with Susan Ericksen as narrator and it just doesn't get any better. In this book, VI runs into her usual pitfalls, gets into typical VI trouble while trying to follower her noble instincts and navigate a love life in the midst of her escapades. It is harrowing, relevant and spell binding. Love the series. Wish Ericksen has narrated all of them.

Full of Twists and Turns

As always, Sara Paretsky has written a novel that does not fail to keep me on edge, continuously trying to figure out who did it and why. And, as always, I am completely flabbergasted.

I absolutely love this feisty private investigator and all the skirmishes she gets herself into during the course of her investigations. She is gutsy and dogmatic in her pursuit of true justice, just like the stereotypical gritty gum shoes of old. I highly recommend this novel and its accompanying series. #murder #mystery #PI

My favorite VI story so far

Memorable characters, especially, the lovable downstairs retired machinist and finally a more believable romance for the PI. The audiobook version offer many generous and satisfying hours of listening.

"Tunnel Vision", a Paretsky best.

Always enjoy the Paretsky stories with the interplay of characters, of which Tunnel Vision has many, and a very involved plot. I like that, and it keeps my mind from wandering.
The narrator, Susan Ericksen, walks the line and talks the talk for a perfect Vic, or would it be Vick? I'm an audible person anymore, and haven't read a Paretsky in paper for many years. Though, I could remember liking the author and the story. Now I'm hooked on Audible.com.
