Paretsky but not as you know her
It ranks as one of the best.
I had only read a couple Sarah Paretsky's lady detective novels prior to listening to Bleeding Kansas and I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I downloaded it. I was bowled over by the story line, the characters, the plot and the intelligence of the whole. Hoping she's written more like this.
