Meg Gardner, a Montana "repo woman," plunges headlong into a murder investigation when Clay Benett, the owner of a jeep she has been searching for, turns up dead in the woods.

McMillan Palgrave
From the author of the New York Times Notable Book Easy Money, a riveting suspense novel about a headstrong repo woman in Montana.

On Missoula's coldest day of the year, the police pull Clay Bennett's corpse from the weeds. For the cops, his death is an open-and-shut case, the result of a drunken brawl gone out of control. For repo woman Meg Gardner, who'd been looking to snag Bennett's Jeep, his death is an opportunity: without him around to make life difficult, the job should be a breeze. But rumors about a mysterious missing military plane --and about her own father's other family --leave Meg feeling decidedly uneasy about the cops' casual assumptions.

Only one year out of prison, romantically involved, and working the first legitimate job she's ever had, Meg has a lot to lose. So when Bennett's Jeep is stolen from outside her house, instinct and experience demand she walk away. Driven by haunting suspicions and ghosts from her past, however, Meg plunges full speed ahead -- and finds herself implicated in a dangerous web of infidelity, greed, and murder.

With searing prose and nonstop action, Jenny Siler's second novel confirms her status as a brilliant new suspense writer.

On a cold December day in Missoula, the police pull Clay Bennett's corpse from the weeds. For the cops, Bennett's death is an open-and-shut case, the result of a drunken brawl gone out of control. For repo woman Meg Gardner, who'd been looking to snag Bennett's Jeep, his death is an opportunity: Without him around to make life difficult, the job should be a breeze.
Only one year out of prison, romantically involved, and working the first legitimate job she's ever had, all Meg wants is to keep things clean and simple. Her name still carries the reek of small-town scandal, touched off twenty years ago by the violent implosion of her family. Understandably, she'd like to keep a low profile. A rented house, cigarettes, coffee, beer, burgers, and, in a pinch, her landlady's gun - that's all she needs to get by, for now.
So when Bennett's Jeep is broken into outside her house by a bunch of Russian thugs, instinct and experience demand that she walk away. But then she learns about the missing military plane Bennett had been hunting obsessively before he was killed - the same plane he crashed in the wilderness forty years earlier. And when a tattooed woman with an astonishing facility with knives shows up in town, Meg has no choice but to seek the real cause of Bennett's death.
Desperate to protect what little she has and driven by ghosts from her own past, Meg plunges ahead - and finds herself involved in a dangerous web of infidelity, greed, and murder.
