Sara Paretsky has written twenty books and has received numerous awards, including the Diamond Dagger lifetime achievement award from the British Crime Writers Association. When 'Indemnity Only' was published in 1982, Paretsky opened the previously male-dominated mystery genre to a new kind of hero: a female investigator who uses her wits as well as her fists, and is neither a vamp nor a victim. Paretsky's passion for social justice led her to found Sisters in Crime in 1986, to support women writers in the mystery world, endow scholarships and mentor students in Chicago's public schools, and also serve on a wide range of advisory boards for literacy. 'Hardball', her 12th novel to feature popular detective V.I Warshawski, draws on real events of the civil rights movement in 1960s Chicago, as well as Paretsky's own experiences living there in 1966, not far from Dr. Martin Luther King. As Detective Warshawski unravels an old cold case, she stumbles upon an ugly, shocking chapter of Chicago police history--one that may implicate her own late father, a Chicago cop. With a missing young woman to find, and old wounds to open, Warshawski will come to distrust everything and everyone she thought she knew.
