About the Author: Sara Paretsky

Sara Paretsky is a modern American author of detective fiction. Paretsky was raised in Kansas, and graduated from the state university with a degree in political science. She did community service work on the south side of Chicago in 1966 and returned in 1968 to work there. She ultimately completed a Ph.D. in history at the University of Chicago, entitled The Breakdown of Moral Philosophy in New England Before the Civil War, and finally earned an MBA from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. Married to a professor of physics at the University of Chicago, she has lived in Chicago since 1968.

The protagonist of all but two of Paretsky's novels is V.I. Warshawski, a female private investigator. Warshawski's eclectic personality defies easy categorization. She drinks Johnnie Walker Black Label, breaks into houses looking for clues, and can hold her own in a street fight, but also she pays attention to her clothes, sings opera along with the radio, and enjoys her sex life.

Paretsky is credited with transforming the role and image of women in the crime novel. The Winter 2007 issue of Clues: A Journal of Detection is devoted to her work.

Her two books that are non-Warshawski novels are : Ghost Country (1998) and Bleeding Kansas (2008).

Los hoteles se incendian en el Chicago de las muchas razas e infinitas tramas. Nadie sabe por qué. ¿Algo huele a corrupción? Victoria Warshawski, la elegante, dura y original detective protagonista de las novelas de Sara Paretsky, jamás rehúye una causa noble, sobre todo si se trata de evitar la explotación de cualquier minoría étnica y de esa gran mayoría marginada que constituyen las mujeres. En Marcas de fuego, y siempre dentro del más puro estilo policíaco, Warshawski investiga un nuevo caso donde la corrupción policial y el escándalo político se mezclan con el drama personal de sus propios familiares.

Sara Paretsky (1947, Iowa) es ya una autora clásica del género policíaco. Licenciada en la Universidad de Kansas, vive en Chicago desde 1968. Paretsky es la aclamada creadora de la serie de novelas negras dedicadas a V.I. Warshawski, la primera mujer detective del género, con la que logró desafiar los estereotipos de los héroes masculinos. Entre sus novelas, cabe destacar Fuego (Ediciones B), Golpe de sangre (en esta misma colección), Medicina amarga, Órdenes mortales y Punto muerto.
