The enigmatic performer known as the Body Artist allows her audience to use her naked body as a canvas. V.I. Warshawski watches as people step forward. The evening takes a strange turn when one woman's sketch triggers a violent outburst from an Iraqi war vet. Days later, the woman is shot outside the club. She dies in V.I.'s arms, and the police move quickly to arrest the angry vet. A shooting in Chicago is nothing new, certainly not to V.I., who is hired by the vet's family to clear his name. As V.I. seeks answers, her investigation will take her from the North Side of Chicago to the far reaches of the Gulf War.

This is a wonderfully Chicago mystery story. I loved the sense of the Chicago neighborhoods and suburban areas that are conveyed. The charcters are unique and colorful. V I Warshawski is once again a tough but sensitive PI who uses her wits and her many friends to help her solve a complex and diabolical crime. She makes some new friends along the way. The body artist is one of the most cleverly written characters I have read about in a long time. The Iraq war veterans are well-written and their story is timely.
