Do you want to go: Overboard

A Novel

by Sara Paretsky

#Overboard #NetGalley

Overboard is the twenty-second title is Ms. Paretsky’s long running series featuring Vi Warshawski. I first encountered Vi in Indemnity Only which was originally released in 1982. Somehow, this talented author has very successfully kept Vi socially relevant and engaging. The books are always a good read and will certainly be enjoy by those who like Sue Grafton.

This time, Vi encounters an enigmatic, injured teen girl. It is late at night. This girl says something but disappears soon thereafter. What happened? What does she know? Since this is a Vi W novel, readers can be sure that some powerful people will be involved. How do the police fit into these events?

One interesting aspect of the book is the acknowledgment of the pandemic. This is happening more in books recently but it is always good to look at things with Vi.

This is a long novel. The pages will turn though! I think that readers both new to and familiar with the series will like this one.

Many thanks to NetGalley and William Morrow for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
