The Book Show #1225 - Sara Paretsky
By Joe Donahue
Albany, NY – Thirty years ago, mystery writer Sara Paretsky published her first novel starring intrepid Chicago P.I. V.I. Warshawski. Her latest in the popular series is: Breakdown. The plot mixes the mania for vampire and supernatural novels, especially among tweens, tabloid journalism, xenophobia and dirty politics.
