At sixty or so, elegant, swellegant city gal CELINE is pretty much set in her ways. She's carved out a niche for herself as an ace tracker of missing persons, which pays for her tiny but cozy apartment at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the finer things in life.
Sure, her empysema may slow her down a notch, and she may longer be a spring chicken, and her cultured manner and refined, artistic airs may suggest some delicate hothouse flower, but when the going gets tough, Celine can kick ass along with the best of 'em. And she isn't afraid to leave the pavement and the sidewalks behind if the case calls for it.
In her epontmous debut, Celine's travels all the way to Yellowstone Park on behalf of a young woman whose father, a wildlife photographer, disappeared somewhere on the border of Montana and Wyoming. Most folks assume he was the victim of a bear attack, but Celine and her partner soon begin to suspect something far more sinister is going on when they realize someone is following them.From the best-selling author of The Dog Stars and The Painter, a luminous, masterful novel of suspense--the story of Celine, an elegant, aristocratic private eye who specializes in reuniting families, trying to make amends for a loss in her own past.
