V.I. Warshawski's latest case has alreasy opened  up old wounds. But when a silky voice on the phone  threatened to throw acid in her eyes, V.I. knew  this one could finish her off with some brand-new  ones. The sour-faced old aunt she had agreed to  help was accused of stealing millions in stock  certificates from a pious order of Dominican brothers.  V.I. knew the woman was a witch, not a thief, and  she soon smelled something rotten in the sanctum  sanctorum of Chicago's most powerful movers and  shakers -- the Church and the Mob. Now someone wants  to see V.I. burn in hell. But this tough cookie of  a private eye had her back up, a brand-new Smith &  Wesson, and a daring plan to make the bad guys go  to the devil first.

Good. VI is asked by her hostile, estranged aunt to look into some counterfeit securities discovered in a church safe: shortly thereafter the aunt fires her from the case. Well written, good characterization, interesting plot as VI investigates Catholic clergy shenanigans.
