Fire Sale Discussion Questions

These are just a few sample questions for our discussion of Fire Sale by Sara Paretsky.

1. How would you describe V.I. Warshawski?

2. How would you describe her methods as an investigator?

3. How effective was the way the story was structured? Are there any elements of the story or plot twists that surprised you?

4. How believable is the plot of Fire Sale? Did you find the mystery plausible?

5. How do you feel about Paretsky's portrayals of South Chicago and Barrington? Do you think the portrayals are accurate?

6. How is Fire Sale a "political" novel?

7. Have you read any of the other books in the series? How does this book compare to other mysteries you have read?
