Summary:

"Chicago may be the city of broad shoulders, but it's political law is "pay to play." Money changes hands in the middle of the night, and by morning, buildings and parks are replaced by billion-dollar projects. Chicago PI V.I. Warshawski stumbles up against one of these clandestine deals when her impetuous goddaughter, Bernie Fouchard, wants to rescue Lydia Zamir, a famed singer-songwriter now living on the streets. All V.I. wants is to keep Bernie from beating up Lydia's self-appointed protector, a mysterious man named Coop. However, when the computer geek Bernie is dating is murdered in the park, V.I. knows she's up against opponents whose strategy is simple: bulldoze -- or kill -- any obstacle in their way. Questions pile up almost as fast as the dead bodies. When V.I. tries to answer them, she finds a terrifying conspiracy stretching from Chicago's lakefront to a cover-up of the dark chapters in America's history meddling in South American politics. Before she finds answers, V.I. comes close to the breaking point and the realization that people who pay to play take no prisoners"-- Provided by publisher.
