We are currently a quarter of the way through the challenge.

Bitter Medicine
by Sara Paretsky

Chicago private eye V.I. Warshawski knows from the start that Consuelo Alvarado's baby is trouble.  Consuelo is sixteen diabetic, and the daughter of a friend.  When she goes into labor too early, even V.I.'s wild drive to get her to the hospital can't save either Consuelo or her child.  Soon V.I. is investigating possible malpractice at the emergency room  and falling for a doctor who works there.  Mixing business and love is always bad medicine, but V.I. finds herself listening to her heart, not her head.  And when a brutal murder and the violent destruction of a women's clinic put her at the center of a very dirty conspiracy, justice may be the only remedy for a hurt that cuts deep, and chills right to the bone.
