Product Description:

Kathleen Turner stars as the tough-talking private investigator V.I. Warshawski, heroine of a series of popular detective novels by Sara Paretsky. A working class gal from Chicago's North Side, Warshawski proves she can hold her own against an assortment of male miscreants as she attempts to crack a case involving the murder of an ex-hockey player. But Warshawski has more than just her sleuthing duties to attend to: she also has her hands full looking after the dead man's smart-mouthed adolescent daughter.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

V.I. Warshawski
When brute force isn't enough to handle the human sludge of the Chicago underworld, private investigator V.I. Warshawski pulls out two of her most lethal weapons -- powerful charm and the skill of a woman who knows all the right moves. A tough-talking, fiercely independent, sexy P.I. with a weakness for pretty shoes, Warshawski is armed with brains and seductive sex appeal. When pushed to the edge, Warshawski can play hardball with the Windy City's most wanted, including a cold-blooded killer who has murdered Boom-Boom Grafalk, an ex-hockey player who has caught her eye. A just cause is reason enough for Warshawski to take on a new case, and when Boom-Boom's 13-year-old daughter, Kat, retains the detective to ferret out her father's killer, V.I. uncovers a startling conspiracy for murder and money.
