Crime writer <a href="http://www.saraparetsky.com/" target="_blank">Sara Paretsky</a> and her fictional detective protagonist, V.I. Warshawski, both call Chicago home. Like her detective creation, Paretsky spends a lot of time pounding the pavement; but she hunts for inspiration, not clues. Paretsky recently took Alison Cuddy on a tour of some of the places in Chicago that inspire her criminally inclined mind.</p></p> Wed, 24 Aug 2011 14:04:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-08-24/author-sara-paretsky-tours-chicago-her-next-crime-scene-90953
