Granite Noir welcomes the award-winning American author who transformed the crime fiction landscape in 1982, with the creation of private investigator V.I. Warshawski—a smart, sassy, female detective who’s more than a match for Chicago’s criminal element, and who shares her creator’s passion for social justice. Paretsky’s also opened doors for other women, establishing Sisters in Crime, a worldwide organisation promoting the advancement and recognition of women crime writers.

In Shell Game, V.I. helps a friend who’s nephew was linked to a murder case. No sooner has she gotten him out of a jam when her ex-husband’s niece needs help tracking down her missing sister. Soon the PI is following two cold trails into a world of high-stakes theft and Russian mobsters with a blithe disregard for the sanctity of life.

Chaired by Denise Mina.
