In the Wind

Barbara Fister, Author . St. Martin’s Minotaur $24.95 (305p) ISBN 978-0-312-37491-4

Chicago PI Anni Koskinen investigates a case ranging from the Vietnam era to a current FBI manhunt in Fister’s explosive follow-up to 2002’s On Edge . As a favor, Koskinen agrees to take Rosa Saenz, one of her friend Father Sikora’s community center volunteers, to Bemidji, Minn. That innocent errand sets the ex-cop on a path that will bring her into conflict with FBI agents, her former Chicago police colleagues and even her mentor, FBI Agent Jim Tilquist. In 1972, Tilquist’s FBI father, Agent Arne Tilquist, was murdered, and the bureau is still tracking his killer. Fister expertly brings the turbulent past into focus with emphasis on Ishkode, a militant splinter group of AIM (the American Indian Movement), and the FBI’s questionable responses to such movements. The Windy City already has plenty of fictional PIs, but they’ll have to make room for the gutsy and appealing Anni Koskinen. (June)
