V.I. Warshawski's latest Chicago adventure centers on homeless shelters and the community organizations involved in them. Fraud and abuse are at the root of Vic's problems with City Hall, civic leaders and the Chicago cops. Vincent lends some good characterizations to the colorful people of Vic's world--black community activists and cops; Lottie Hershel, the Austrian doctor; her neighbor Mr. Contreras; high-handed corporate lawyers. However, the abridgment leaves many dangling subplots. Compounding the cut-up effect, chapter titles are read, but followed only by a few minutes of narration . This reminds the listener how much has been cut from Paretsky's good story. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 94]
