Join Christine Carbo for an evening of discussion at Boulder’s Chautaqua Community Center February 20 (tickets $12) as she draws from her newest book, A Sharp Solitude. She will discuss her latest novel and talk about her journey to becoming an author and writing crime fiction in northwest Montana.
The acclaimed author of The Wild Inside, immerses readers in the beautiful, but often unforgiving landscape of Montana while delivering a compelling portrait of two damaged souls running from the past. In the darkening days of autumn, a journalist’s body is found near the Canadian border. The victim was last seen with a man named Reeve Landon, the secretive subject of an article she’d been writing. Now Reeve is the prime suspect. FBI investigator Ali Paige is not assigned the case, but Reeve is an ex-boyfriend, the father of her child. If she can find out what really happened, she might be able to save her daughter from the pain of abandonment. Meanwhile, a reckless and paranoid Reeve ventures deep into in the woods, assuming his karmic punishment has finally arrived. As the clock ticks and the noose tightens around Reeve’s neck, Ali isn’t sure how far she’ll go to find the truth. And what if truth isn’t something she wants to know?
Propulsive and suspenseful, evoking the breathtaking beauty of Glacier National Park and its surrounding areas, A Sharp Solitude demonstrates that people can’t outrun their demons, even in the vast, wild terrain of Northwest Montana.
