Hardball V. Author Sara Paretsky created her indomitable detective in Since then, Vic has starred in 20 crime novels that explore kidnappings, insurance fraud, money heists, deadly secrets, and more — all played out against a gritty Chicago backdrop. She grew up amid the racial challenges of the late s, including riots on the South Side and a memorable march with Martin Luther King, Jr.
These memories come back to haunt her as she excavates the illicit alliances, lies, and coverups of the past. There are plenty of big feelings and thrilling action, including a knock-down, drag-out brawl, dread-soaked prison visits, and threatening verbal jabs. This had always been a rough part of town. But when the mills were filling the landscape with clouds of toxic dust, most people had good jobs. Now those mills are as dead and gone as the cattle that used to pour through the stockyards.
Most people in South Chicago lucky enough to find work are pulling minimum wage at the fast-food joints or the big By-Smart warehouse on rd Street. Unemployment rates have stood at over twenty-five percent for more than two decades down here, and street crime usually involves more than one gun.
