New York, NY, U.S.A.: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., 1994. First Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by author on title page. Ana Grey thinks of herself as a "full-blooded optimistic American." She's a young, ambitious, irreverent, tough-minded FBI agent based in Los Angeles. She's been with the Bureau for seven years, is good at what she does, and after she pulls off "the most amazing arrest of the year" is sure she finally has her ticket to a transfer and a promotion. But for a woman to walk into the squad supervisor's office is "like entering a deep freeze." He snags her on a technical detail. Instead of a promotion she gets an official reprimand--and, as a test, a high-profile case involving the fading but still-beloved movie star Jayne Mason, a well-known doctor, and an allegedly illegal supply of drugs passing between them. All the elements are right there for Ana to put in the proper order. Simple, straightforward, easy to wrap up--or so it would seem. NORTH OF MONTANA is an electrifying novel of psychological acuity and unfaltering suspense, the debut of an assured and powerful storyteller. NORTH OF MONTANA was nominated for a Macavity Award for Best First Novel. Author of BE THE ONE; GOOD MORNING, KILLER and THE JUDAS HORSE. As new, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. BB
