Shes 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 promotion. Instead, snagged on a technical detail, she gets a 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 into the proper order. Simple, straight forward, easy to wrap up. But its not long before she discovers that the doctor had employed a distant cousin of hers, a woman Ana never knew, a woman who has recently been brutally murdered. And it doesnt take her much longer to understand that in the eyes of her higher ups, 'Jayne Mason is not a case, Jayne Mason is a....political situation waiting to explode.' Now, as Ana fights to prevent the case from making its way deep into her psyche, her world, her life, into the long hidden recesses of her familys mysterious past and into her conflicted present. North of Montana becomes a riveting exploration of power and identity in an explosive culture. This author's first book and a stated FIRST EDITION.
