Love & Other Crimes – Audiobook Online

Love & Other Crimes is a literary fiction book by author Sara Paretsky.
New York Times bestselling author Sara Paretsky is a master of suspenseful and gripping plot. She is hailed by the criminal community as “a legend” (Harlan Coben) and “one of the greatest of all time” (Karin Slaughter). Warshawski ranks among the most popular crime series in modern fiction. Now, in this fascinating anthology, Paretsky demonstrates her extraordinary talent with 14 short stories, including a new short story by V.I. story and seven other classics about the indomitable detective. In “Miss Bianca,” a young girl engages in espionage while befriending a lab rat that is conducting dark experiments.

Ten-year-old boy V.I. Warshawski appears in “Wildcat”, embarking on the first investigation to save his father. A hardened New York detective and an elderly British aristocrat team up to uncover a Chicago killer during the World’s Fair in “Murder in the Progressive Century”. In the novel titled, “Love and Other Crimes”, V.I. Crosses the line between justice and revenge when the mistaken shooting of a family friend makes him a murder suspect.

Warshawski, new listeners discovering her for the first time, or any lover of crime and chilling thrills, Love and Other Crimes is a tribute to her exceptional storytelling skills. Paretsky and a stinging exploration of the dark conspiracies and desperate human acts that lurk in plain sight.

Book of short stories, all, I think, previously published, but some modified or updated. They are not all about the author’s heroine, V. I. Warshawski, but she makes at least a cameo appearance in nearly all of the stories. The stories in which Warshawski is the principal character profit from not involving her in some kind of miraculous escape, which seems de rigueur for the novels.

The one story in which Victoria escapes from the trunk of a car will shock some people. The story is based on the author’s experiences volunteering in the civil rights movement in Chicago. It takes place during the Chicago riots of 1966 (Victoria is a smallish child then), and Ms. Paretsky pulls no punches displaying the prejudice and fierce hatred of the white people – even to the point of using a word that I dare not print here. Another story, based on the author’s experience working with Head Start, is apparently intended to show obstacles placed before black or poor children in school, and is tendentious and unconvincing.
