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
