Dodging elaborate attempts on her life with characteristic grit and humor, the one-of-a-kind detective wends her way through a maze of grain elevators and thousand-ton freighters, ruthless businessmen and gorgeous ballerinas, to ferret out Boom Boom's killers before they phase her out of the picture -- permanently.

Sara Paretsky: Deadlock (USA 1985)

From the Publisher:
The Chicago Black Hawks' Boom Boom Warshawski had been a hockey legend in his own time. Over a thousand peoplé attended his funeral, sad and sorry to hear he'd slipped off the wharf and drowned. The police are all too happy to call it an accident. And they don't like the idea of Boom Boom's cousin, private investigator V.I. Warshawski, sticking her female nose in an obvious open-and-shut case.

But between attempts on her life and shots of Scotch, the intrepid, witty Warshawski winds her way through a maze of grain elevators and thousand-ton freighters, suspicious businessmen and gorgeous ballerinas. She's hot on a trail that will tell whether she's taken the whole thing too personally or her beloved Boom Boom has really been murdered.

Sara Paretsky: Deadlock (USA 1984)

From the Publisher:
One of the most impressive recent debuts in mystery writing was that of Sara Paretsky, whose Indemnity Only was immediately hailed by critics and mystery buffs. That novel introduced the tough, witty V. I. Warshawski, a Chicago detective whose field was corporate crime, a field in which she easily proved to her dubious male colleagues that a woman private investigator was at no loss when the stakes were murder.

DEADLOCK brings the welcome return of V.I. in a case involving the huge Great Lakes shipping industry. and once again the subject is murder-this time the "accidental death" of Boom-Boom Warshawski, an ex-hockey star and V.I.'s beloved cousin, who fell -- or was pushed -- off a rain-slicked pier on Chicago's busy waterfront. Convinced that Boom-Boom was in fact killed because of information he bad uncovered about criminal doings on the shipping lines.

V.I. begins a long and frustrating search for her cousin's murderer. In the course of an investigation that takes her to a remote Canadian port city and a calamitous trip on a sabotaged freighter, V.I. finds all too many possible candidates for the killer, including a grain company executive involved in extortion; and rival heads of two shippers, one of whom is being blackmailed for his criminal past; a hockey player whose specialty is graft; and Boom-Boom's lover, an icily beautiful dancer with expensive tastes in men and merchandise.
