Each step of the publishing process makes Montana feel a little more real (as if sweating over it for two years didn’t feel real).
In Gwen Florio’s entertaining debut, war correspondent Lola Wicks finds the greatest threat to her safety is not dodging bullets in Afghanistan but discovering who killed her friend and fellow correspondent in Magpie, Montana. Florio knows her territory. She gives us wind on the high plains and the wet nose of a horse hungry for sugar. There’s fire in the hills, trouble in the governor’s race, and a county awash in drugs. Magpie’s the old West with daunting new problems, and the scrappy Lola Wicks takes them on.
In a mere eleven months – Montana is scheduled for publication in November 2013 – you’ll be able to see for yourself. But who’s counting?
