"POWERFUL...A PAGE-TURNER OF SUBSTANCE...
When [F.B.I. agent] Ana Grey is given a high-profile case involving a Hollywood actress who claims that her doctor has hooked her on illegal drugs, Ana's own puzzling history collides with her investigation and she must face an uncomfortable truth about her family and herself."
A notably literate crime novel about all manner of social dividing lines--race, gender, age, class--in the rude stew of L.A.'s human melting pot."
--New York Newsday
"FINELY WRITTEN...FULL OF SURPRISES...
Smith brings an expert sense of pace to this first novel. But it is her engaging style, which blends lyric descriptions with crackling dialogue, that makes NORTH OF MONTANA such a pleasure to read."
--The Wall Street Journal
"A BREATHLESS READ FROM THE VERY FIRST SENTENCE...
This baby zips along with all the jolt of a double espresso."
"ABSORBING...ANA IS AN ENGAGING HEROINE
whose blend of gutsiness, humor and vulnerability may bring to mind another California crime specialist, Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone."
--The New York Times Book Review
