Involving mystery, good writing, interesting characters. I especially loved the description of the mountain landscapes - perhaps, because I'm from Rocky Mountain country myself?!

Celine, my new novel, was a bit different, and very special, because it is about my mom. She died two and half years ago, and I think I wanted to spend another year with her. Like the protagonist she was a crack investigator who specialized in reuniting birth families. Like Celine, she could shoot—the scene in Idaho with the gun dealer when she blows seven cans and bottles off the log is true—and she really did bring in a bank fraud perp for the FBI—after spying on him with her opera glasses, and executing a high speed car chase in her old Volvo. She really was courageous and elegant, and the family backstory in France during the war is all true. I tried to write her as closely as I could.
The book, I guess, was a coming home for me. As writing fiction was, after so many years as a journalist.
-- Peter Heller, From an interview published online by Amazon Book Review March 2017.
