    KINDLE [Windy City Blues] Windy City Blues is a collection of short stories featuring VI Warshawski Having read several of the full length books in the series I liked the characters but found many of them too long and filled with an overwhelming amount of details usually explaining the financial crimes involved I found this book refreshing in its brevity in fact the stories could have been longer If only Paretsky could find a happy medium

Read & Download Windy City Blues ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ister Evangeline is prime suspect and VI has only eighteen hours to crack the case before it's headline news  Three Dot Po proves there's nothing like a dog  Especially a dog on the trail of her mistress's killer with VI in towIn Strung Out love means nothing and VI's uick to learn the score as her old friend's tennis champion daughter is under suspicion for strangling her father with a racket string  And there's nine stories in all in this masterful collection of short fiction starring VI Warshawski the most engaging woman in detective fiction since Dorothy Sayers's Harriet Vane Newswee. Very few books of short stories make it to my list because I don t read a lot of anthologies I picked up Windy City Blues because I had enjoyed other books by Sara Paretsky and thought her female private eye and erstwhile attorney V I Warshawski made for good reading These stories didn t disappoint At times they felt too short and at times I could sense exactly why they made better stories than novels I suppose the collection has the added advantage that I already know the protagonist and some of the supporting cast so I was immersed in the stories faster than I normally find myself involved vicariously in the lives of fictitious charactersIt helped that the first story in the collection dealt with mother issues and family issues As a male who went through that father issue period though I am thankful that my Dad lived long enough for us to have a normal and healthy relationship even if it did take 20 years and a painful failure in my life to make it possible I can definitely believe a female protagonist grappling with who her mother was and especially when she didn t have those late years in life to normalize that relationship like so many of us get to do amazing how much smarter our folks get after we re 40 nu The story was further strengthened by the idea of a potentially rare musical score and the fact that the protagonist kept making discoveries that may have put her mother in a new light for her Sadly I thought the author telegraphed the perpetrator in this mystery story pretty fast but there was some ambiguity there that made it worth reading Some of the other stories in the anthology also dealt with interesting subjects to me workplace politics stage door parents even though these stage door parents were actually pushing their athletic progeny as opposed to theatrical progeny psychological theory professional musicians and games a very short but intriguing mystery built upon Go moku in China Wei Chi Sadly the latter was the only story that really surprised me I liked them all maybe because I felt like I was in on the mystery in each story but I like to be surprised a bit oftenThe best part of the anthology for me though was that all of the stories take place in and around Chicago Wilmette where I live Skokie where we like to go for shopping and entertainment the Loop where I work and the Lakeshore that is so beautiful At one point in one of the stories Warshawski mentions DePaul students where I teach and makes a classic Chicago observation while figuring her income for the month and listening to the Bears neither was adeuate I loved it It was spoken like most of the Chicago fans I know for most of the sports teams We expect the worst and usually get it Fortunately with Ms Paretsky s mysteries we usually expect a book we can devour and enjoy and we have yet to be disappointed geoff buda ve ben years and a painful failure in my life to make it possible I can definitely believe a female protagonist grappling with who her mother was and especially when she didn t have those late Perky years in life to normalize that relationship like so many of us get to do amazing how much smarter our folks get after we re 40 nu The story was further strengthened by the idea of a potentially rare musical score and the fact that the protagonist kept making discoveries that may have put her mother in a new light for her Sadly I thought the author telegraphed the perpetrator in this mystery story pretty fast but there was some ambiguity there that made it worth reading Some of the other stories in the anthology also dealt with interesting subjects to me workplace politics stage door parents even though these stage door parents were actually pushing their athletic progeny as opposed to theatrical progeny psychological theory professional musicians and games a very short but intriguing mystery built upon Go moku in China Wei Chi Sadly the latter was the only story that really surprised me I liked them all maybe because I felt like I was in on the mystery in each story but I like to be surprised a bit oftenThe best part of the anthology for me though was that all of the stories take place in and around Chicago Wilmette where I live Skokie where we like to go for shopping and entertainment the Loop where I work and the Lakeshore that is so beautiful At one point in one of the stories Warshawski mentions DePaul students where I teach and makes a classic Chicago observation while figuring her income for the month and listening to the Bears neither was adeuate I loved it It was spoken like most of the Chicago fans I know for most of the sports teams We expect the worst and usually get it Fortunately with Ms Paretsky s mysteries we usually expect a book we can devour and enjoy and we have Rayleigh Through Time yet to be disappointed

Sara Paretsky s famous private eye VI Warshawski has been my go to detective from the time I was in high school Bleeding Chicago blue and loving the city and the Cubs as much as I do I have read each of VI s cases with enthusiasm Needing a book of detective short stories as part of a mystery challenge I came across Paretsky s Windy City Blues on a friend s feed last week With nine stories featuring VI and friends Windy City Blues adds depth to the detective s character in an early book in the seriesIt is the mid 1990s There is no internet or social media and people get the majority of their news from newspapers television and radio detectives included What I enjoy about the early books in this series is that VI really has to detect and snoop worming her way into situations usually barred to all but the police Murray Ryerson VI s contact at the Globe plays a key role in providing her with news tips in exchange for her own information The two enjoy an interesting to say the least relationship usually providing me with a few laughs Additionally with her father beat cop Tony Warshawski only deceased fifteen years at this point Vic still has friends on the force While at times the cops resent her presence as getting in their way and at other times do not want to see Tony s daughter in harms way an early Vic enjoyed a cordial working relationship with Chicago s finest Sergeant John McGonnigal appears in each of the cases here as does Captain Bobby Mallory her father s closest friend on the force Both give her the benefit of the doubt on dubious cases allowing VI to wrap up loose ends uicklySurgeon Lotty Herschel downstairs neighbor the venerable Mr Contreras and Golden Glow bar owner Sal Barthele also make appearances in these stories as do the dogs Mitch and Peppy Both attempt without much success to play the role of Vic s parents urging her to be careful and to stay out of harms way Lotty does not have to do much patching up here as most of these cases wrap up uickly or involve thinking rather than solving yet she has reminded Vic of the numerous times that she has saved her life Meanwhile Mr Contreras would love a shot at any intruders and gives possible lovers the ninth degree while Sal provides morale support and dry humor at the end of long working days This cast of characters who I have come to know so well over the years makes for easy reading suspense and a few laughsWhile the stories were predictable a few stand out In Grace Notes a long lost cousin makes an appearance claiming that Vic s mother owned rare musical compositions and would kill to obtain them The denouement of this story was predictable but gave insight into Vic s mother s family and also made her uestion her parentage The Pietro Andromache features white collar crime while also offering a look into Lotty s past Her role as a Holocaust survivor and her difficulties in facing the past play a recurring prominent role in the series Other stand out stories include Strung Out in which a tennis prodigy is accused of murdering her father and Skin Deep where Sal s sister is said to have killed a client at the beauty salon where she works In each instance VI detects and solves the case sometimes with the help of Murray and the cops and sometimes solo all providing for easy reading whodunitsI was not thrilled with Paretsky s latest VI installment Fallout because the action takes place largely away from Chicago without her usual cast of characters so I found it fun to revisit an earlier episode in the series Even though the cases here were largely predictable I found my time with VI to be fun as I returned to early days when she was the premier private eye in Chicago With no internet or computer VI really had to detect here and I enjoyed seeing her and her friends in action Hopefully Paretsky s next case will have Vic back in Chicago where she belongs but if not I can always return to the early cases where VI Warshawski is in her heyday35 fun stars
