Best Warshawski so far. Characters are too hard on each other. Good stuff with Contreras and the old lady with the dog.

Guardian Angel is the 7th in the VI Warshawski series. It took a while to get into the two different storylines, but once I was in, I got hooked and had to finish it. VI was working on a case for her neighbor, but also took on a case involving another elderly neighbor. In the end the two cases were somewhat related. VI also gets some bedroom action and I can't wait to see how this will play out in future books.… (more)

A fantastic instalment in the series, which has slightly dated - Vic doesn't own a computer - but which deals with contemporary problems: a possibly corrupt company and the issues of an elderly neighbour. Vic is a great character, feisty, determined and indomitable.

I don't know why I took so long to read this...I was committed to the story and Vic is a loved character of mine.
I guess the crime itself was quite hard to keep track of, even though I was reading it more for Vic's life and person than her work.
It dragged at times, I did get a bit lost, and I needed to prod myself to pick it up, though once I did I was on a roll.
Just couldn't read too much at once.
Even now, i still couldn't tell you the story(!) But Vic is still my top pi...though her crown may slip to Kinsey Mialone.....

Honestly one of the best genre detective novels I've read in a long time. Complicated plot, plenty of action, and multiple plot lines that converge and tie up nicely in the end. It's a straight genre detective novel, so it's certainly not life-changing, but it's an excellent example of what it is. It's fun to read, it keeps you turning pages, and the conclusion is very satisfying. For vacation reading, you can't do much better.… (more)
