Sara Paretsky “Critical Mass”
January 20th, 2014
An unwelcome figure from Dr. Lotty Herschel’s past resurfaces in Sara Paretsky‘s latest novel “Critical Mass.” Paretsky’s popular private eye V.I. Warshawski steps in to help her closest friend.
As Vic discovers, Lotty lost most of her family in the Holocaust, but she escaped to London in 1939 with a childhood playmate, Kitty Binder. Now Kitty’s daughter is in danger — and so is her grandson.
But their troubles turn out to be just the beginning, as Vic uncovers a viper’s nest 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.
