V. I. Warshawski 30th Anniversary Party
Illinois’ richest and most powerful families. Preteen girls. Vampire fiction.
Murder. Chicago politics. A rabid 24-hour cable news network. After three decades’
worth of hard-hitting mystery thrillers, V. I. Warshawski is used to facing some serious
headaches, but these make for the worst one yet. Breakdown is Paretsky’s fifteenth V. I.
Warshawski novel and the 30th anniversary of the very first V. I. novel ever published.
Join us for the celebration as she takes on the most compelling – and dangerous – case of
her career. Champagne, of course, and other refreshments will be served.
“Warshawski presents an irresistible combination – a cranky, vulnerable woman with
a messy life, but a superhuman willingness to put herself in harm’s way for the sake of
justice.” – Chicago Sun Times
