Synopsis:

Sara Paretsky, one of the most legendary crime writers of all time, presents an exclusive and thrilling short story featuring beloved investigator V.I. Warshawski as a ten-year-old girl on her first investigation.
V.I. Warshawski developed her strength and sense of justice at a very early age. It’s 1966 and on the south side of Chicago racial tensions are at an all-time high. Dr. Martin Luther King is leading marches at Marquette Park and many in the neighborhood are very angry.
With nothing but a bicycle, eighty-two cents in her pocket, and her Brownie camera hanging from her wrist, Victoria sneaks off to Marquette Park alone to protect her father Tony, a police officer who is patrolling the crowds.
What begins as a small adventure and a quest to find her father and make sure he is safe turns into something far more dangerous. As the day goes on and the conflict at the park reaches a fever pitch Victoria realizes she must use her courage and ingenuity if she wants to keep herself and her family members out of harm’s way.

Sara Paretsky
Hailed by P.D. James as "the most remarkable" of modern crime writers, SARA PARETSKY is the New York Times-bestselling author of nineteen previous novels, including the renowned V.I. Warshawski series. She is one of only four living writers – alongside John Le Carré, Sue Grafton, and Lawrence Block – to have received both the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America and the Cartier Diamond Dagger from the Crime Writers' Association of Great Britain. She lives in Chicago with her husband.
Before there was Lisbeth Salander, before there was Stephanie Plum, there was V.I. WARSHAWSKI. She took the mystery world by storm in 1982 with her first appearance in Indemnity Only. A gifted private eye with the grit and smarts to tackle the mean streets, V.I. transformed a genre in which women were typically either vamps or victims. As a "courageous, sexually liberated female investigator," she "has a humility, a humanity, and a need for human relationships which the male hard-boilers lack" (P.D. James). She lives in Chicago with her dog.

This short story that precludes the first novel and has V.I. Warshawski as a young girl. It is 1966, hot summer in Chicago where V.I finds out that something that she needs to warn her father about. He is a cop and is at the park where Dr.Martin Luther King is. Along the way she gets kidnapped and stuck in the trunk of a car. Using the wits she has at her young age, she finds away to get out of the situation.

Since there are so many different novels to this series, it is nice to kind of get an idea as to how V.I got into the private investigation business. Plus I could definitely relate to the era as I was a teenager in 1966 and remember the riots well, except I was in Milwaukee. Plus the Wildcat in the title refers to the car of the same name of which I had one in the 70's. Even though I have only read a few of these novels, like I said it is interesting to find out a bit about a person as a child.
