    Epub Hardball PDF ê Ä education reference.co Ä hardball kindle, Hardball eBookThe last book in the Warshawski series that I read was #11 Blacklist about a month ago But I read #12 Fire Sale out of order about a year ago So my continuity with this series is not the best Hardball was published in 2009 and Mr Contreras VI’s downstairs neighbor is “close to ninety” years old That seems a little old to be butting into VI’s cases but let’s not be ageist now Larry After all he did save her life at least once and he is a regular so both she and I will miss him when he inevitability bows out The Warshawski series can be a bit repetitious with VI’s office or home being trashed Mr Contreras being a busy body VI being in danger and risking death each book There is also almost always some potential for romance although VI seems like unlikely marriage material But she usually fits in a little sex each book But nothing grap
