Grimesís beloved Andi Oliver returns, on the run from her past

In this stunning sequel to Grimesís beloved Biting the Moon, young Andi Oliver is an amnesiac and drifter who awoke in a Santa Fe bed and breakfast with a manís belongings tossed about the room. Adopting a name from the initials on her backpack, Andi moves from one waitress job to the next, from Idaho to North Dakota.

It is in Dakota that she is hired at Klavanís, a massive pigfarming facility that specializes in the dark art of modern livestock management. As Andi begins to uncover the truth about Klavanís and a slaughterhouse called Big Sun, two men are on her trail, one a gunman hired to kill her, another who has followed her across three states demanding something from her forgotten past.

Dakota signals the return of one of Martha Grimesís most indelible heroines, a smart and troubled young woman who, though she doesnít know her own identity, knows right from wrong. Set against the breathtakingly expansive backdrop of the American plains, Dakota will reward Grimesís legion of fans as well as attracting new readers.
