Sara Paretsky, Marcia Clark, Benjamin Black
In Fallout, Sara Paretsky relocates her Chicago based detective, V.I. Warshawski, to Kansas, where the fish out of water V.I. gets caught up in a convoluted and not entirely plausible plot involving old nukes.
I raced through Moral Defense, another in Marcia Clark’s entertaining series featuring criminal defense attorney Samantha Brinkman, who is defending a teenager accused of triple homicide.
I was disappointed in Benjamin Black’s (a/k/a John Banville) Wolf on a String since I love his Dr. Quirke series. The novel is heavy on atmosphere–the 16thC court of the Holy Roman Emperor and light on plot.
