V.I. always takes her trusty dog along for the ride, and together they embark on a peculiar journey that takes them from a university town to vast fields (that used to be home to missile silos back when the Cold War was raging) all the way into a turbulent past shaken by racial tensions, inequality, and unfairness. V.I. is hoping to find the answers to the present in the past, but it's not gonna be easy to make sense of it all and find the key to solving her case.
However, the mysteries and the unexplainable only stack up and soon she finds herself in the middle of body bags.

It's both provocative and riveting, and Sara Paretsky wrote yet another all-consuming bestseller!
