Series: V.I. Warshawski

Summary (From the publisher):

"Doctors take days off-why not PIs? V.I. Warshawski demands. But when America's hardest working private eye goes clubbing, a stranger is shot and dies in her arms.

V.I. has been visiting Club Gouge, Chicago's edgiest nightspot, where a woman known as the Body Artist turns her naked body into a canvas for the audience to paint on.

The show attracts all kinds of people, from a menacing off-duty cop to Ukranian mobsters and Iraq war vets-and V.I.'s impetuous cousin, Petra. A tormented young painter shows up too, and the intricate designs she creates on the Body Artist drive one of the war vets into a violent rage.

When the painter is shot, the cops figure it's an easy collar-PTSD vet goes off the rails, saalks then kills young woman. But the vet's family hires V.I. to clear his name, and the detective uncovers a chain of ugly truths that stretches all the way from Iraq to Chicago's South Side.
