Sara Paretsky's genius made Chicago private eye V.I. Warshawski a household name. Now in Ghost Country she has written a parable for the millennium-a powerful, haunting novel of myth, madness, hope & revelation. Four troubled people meet beneath Chicago's shadowy streets. They come from different worlds-Luisa, a drunken diva, Madeleine, a homeless woman &, Mara, a rebellious adolescent cast out by her wealthy grandfather who is searching for her mother-but all three share the commonality of hard times. Bound together by life's tortures, the three seek solitude living beneath a hotel in this dark city. A violent storm announces the arrival of a mysterious lady, known to the homeless as Starr. As she enters their lives drastic changes ensue; small miracles begin. Paretsky's notoriety as a great novelist proves worthy in Ghost Country; she has you captured & thrilled until the unexpected end.
