    V. I. Warshawski’s closest friend in Chicago is the Viennese-born doctor Lotty Herschel, who lost most of her family in the Holocaust. Lotty escaped to London in 1939 on the Kindertransport with a childhood playmate, Kitty Saginor Binder. When Kitty’s daughter finds her life is in danger, she calls Lotty, who in turn summons V. I. to help. The daughter’s troubles turn out to be just the tip of an iceberg of lies, secrets, and silence, whose origins go back to the mad competition among America, Germany, Japan, and England to develop the first atomic bomb.

    Would you listen to Critical Mass again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to CM again because the story was so detailed and contained so much history. I'm sure there are little parts I missed. I really enjoyed that the book took you from Past to Present throughout the chapters. Was an interesting way to lead the reader through the lives of those in Germany. I have listened to all the V.I. books now. This story is told in a different way, but still has all the great characteristics of all the other books.

    Carmilla, Queen of the Night, is a shape-shifting raven whose fictional exploits thrill girls all over the world. When tweens in Chicago’s Carmilla Club hold an initiation ritual in an abandoned cemetery, they stumble on an actual corpse, a man stabbed through the heart in a vampire-style slaying. The girls include daughters of some of Chicago’s most powerful families.

    What made the experience of listening to Breakdown the most enjoyable?

    Susan Ericksen is amazing. She really brings the characters to life! I loved this book. The suspense and action in this book fit well together. I was so nervous at the end of the book! The way Paretsky ties everything together and connects the different story lines is magnificent. I really enjoyed all the different characters in this one.

    The end is so good!
