Chicago's unique brand of ball is sixteen-inch slow pitch, played in leagues all over the city for more than a century. But in politics, in business, and in law enforcement, the game is hardball. When V. I. Warshawski is asked to find a man who's been missing for four decades, a search that she figured would be futile becomes lethal when secrets from the city's racially charged history rise up to brush her back from the plate with a vengeance.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book- the writing style struck me as slightly disjointed, but the characters are well-developed, and the action moves fast. Warshawski is a modern, grown-up Nancy Drew with enough flaws to make her human.

It was a good book. I usually enjoy this author. I did find it slower to get me action this time, but had a good finish.
