About the Author
Sara Paretsky revolutionized the mystery world in 1982 when she created a female investigator, V.I. Warshawski who uses her wits as well as her fists. With this, Paretsky challenged a genre in which women typically were either vamps or victims. Not only has Paretsky’s own work broken barriers, she has also helped open doors for other women. In 1986 she created Sisters in Crime, a worldwide organization to support women crime writers, which earned her Ms. Magazine’s 1987 Woman of the Year award. Today Sara Paretsky’s books are published in 30 countries.
