Praise for Breakdown

“With a satisfying array of baddies and the same comfortable heroes, Sara Paretsky gives her fans all they could ask for and everything they should expect.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“One of the many pleasures of Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski novels is that the sharp-tongued, short-tempered detective often seems to be following clues that lead not just to the heart of whatever mystery is at hand, but also into the red-hot center of the zeitgeist itself.”—Los Angeles Times

“Breakdown
‘s riveting plot mixes the mania for vampire and supernatural novels, especially among tweens, virulent TV broadcasters, tabloid journalism, xenophobia and dirty politics.”—Sun Sentinel

“Full of thrills, chills and social ills…The Warshawski novels have only grown better: more ambitious in their construction and fiercer both in their feminist politics and in their commitment to storylines about social justice.”—Maureen Corrigan, NPR.Books
