Praise for Bleeding Kansas

“A strong and stark portrayal of the Heartland.”—Associated Press

“No other modern crime writer has so powerfully and effectively combined a well-crafted detective story with the novel of social realism and protest.”—P. D. James,  in The Spectator

“Paretsky has demonstrated in Bleeding Kansas the superb skills as a novelist that were already known and admired by the avid followers of V.I. Warshawski.”—The Washington Post
“The multigenerational narrative bristles with the kind of prickly social issues that give substance to Paretsky’s detective stories.”—The New York Times Book Review
“A gripping contemporary novel…Paretsky taps a different vein and strikes gold in this timely tale of fear and conflict in heartland America.”—Publishers Weekly

“Intriguing…strong storytelling.”—The Seattle Times

“Paretsky shows a remarkable flair for teasing out the foibles as well as the strengths of her rural protagonists…In Bleeding Kansas, [she] makes a convincing case that these are universal truths. Big city, small town, it makes no difference. Evil—and goodness—are everywhere.”—Chicago Tribune
