Acclaimed detective V. I. Warshawski tackles a pair
of disturbing cases involving those closest to her in this
compelling and timely adventure that centers on some of the
most divisive and pressing issues of our time
When V.I. Warshawski gets word that her close friend and
mentor Lotty Herschelâ€™s nephew has become a murder suspect,
the legendary detective will do everything she can to save
him. The cops found Felix Herschelâ€™s name and phone number
on the unknown victimâ€™s remains, but Felix insists he
doesnâ€™t know why.
As Vic digs deeper, she discovers that the dead man was
obsessed with Middle Eastern archeologyâ€”the first clue in a
bewildering case that leads to a stolen artifact and a
shadowy network of international criminals. But the trouble
multiplies when Vicâ€™s long-lost niece, Reno, goes missing. A
beautiful young woman with a heartbreaking past and a
promising future, Reno is harboring a secret that may cost
her her life. V.I. can hear the clock ticking on her nieceâ€™s
safety and is frantic in her efforts to find her.
Vic wonâ€™t leave any stone unturned until these very personal
cases are clearedâ€”a complex investigation that will entangle
the Russian mob, ISIS backers, rogue ICE agents, a nefarious
corporation preying on the poor, and a shady network of
stock scams and stolen antiquities stretching from Chicago
to the East Indies and the Middle East.
In Shell Game, no one can be trusted and nothing is
what it seems, except for the indomitable detective and her
thirst for justice.
