Review: Bleeding Kansas

Bleeding Kansas
Bleeding Kansas by Sara Paretsky

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sara Paretsky was one of the very first serial mystery fiction authors I began reading after Agatha Christie. I enjoyed her realistic slice of the harsh life with hardcore characters and a very strong female protagonist. I wasn’t concerned over whether she’d do well writing a non-mystery, non-serial fiction novel; however, I was concerned whether I’d actually like it, but rest assured, there’s no reason to be worried.

She spins quite a tale in this fiction work. The characters are quite vivid and come from very strong families that very likely existed in this country years ago. For those who like to test their authors in different genres, this is a case of a successful transition. It carries over all the things you’ll love about a family drama with an air of mystique.
