Bleeding Kansas Summary

Bleeding Kansas by Sara Paretsky

The Grelliers and the Schapens are two families who have been farming in the Kaw River Valley for over a hundred and fifty years, their lives connected through the generations by history and geography. Gina Haring, bringing with her the liberal air of the big city, moves into a dilapidated house near both families' properties. Gina has secrets, her own reasons for being in the Kansas countryside, and they're not necessarily what the people around her imagine. Susan's involvement with her stirs up the wrath of the Schapen clan -- and has cataclysmic results for her own family.

Bleeding Kansas Reviews

Praise for Sara Paretsky's previous novel, Fire Sale -- : 'She is writing with the kind of passion for social justice that inspired Chandler and Hammett' -- Joan Smith, Sunday Times 'Paretsky always forces her readers to think... At its best, crime fiction illuminates the society we live in, and Sara Paretsky proves yet again that she is one of the genre's most significant practitioners.' -- Val McDermid, Independent 'It's hard not to get caught up in her passion ... Snappy dialogue, tight plotting and realistic situations make Paretsky's unapologetically politicised thrillers a pleasure to read, whatever your viewpoint.' -- Daily Mail
