Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An electrifying new thriller that brings back the complex, strong-willed, often-maverick FBI agent—Ana Grey—whom we first met in the author’s stunning debut novel, North of Montana.

This time Special Agent Grey is working on a kidnapping case—a fifteen-year-old named Juliana has been abducted in Santa Monica. Grey’s counterpart in the Santa Monica Police Department is Detective Andrew Berringer. They’ve worked together before—and they’ve been more than just working together ever since.

It’s Ana’s job “to know the victim as if she were my own flesh and blood.” But when Juliana turns up—traumatized into a state of total and paralyzing terror—it becomes clear that Ana has gone too far: she is viewing her own life from the perspective of Juliana’s blasted emotional terrain. And in a moment of passion (Andrew has betrayed her) and panic (is it possible that he also means to harm her?) Ana points a gun at him and shoots.

Now she is both criminal investigator and criminal as she breaks her bail agreement to continue tracking the abductor, torn between her powerful emotional connection with Juliana and the fraying connection she has to her own common sense and to the truths she knows about Andrew—and about herself.

Psychologically acute and unstoppably suspenseful—Good Morning, Killer is a searing, addictive read.

Review:

"Intelligent and uncompromising, this second in a series by Smith reprises the successes of...North of Montana....Smith's finely calibrated, unsentimental writing and tart humor make her a standout in the genre. She doesn't just tell a story; she illuminates the human condition through the pain and complex lives — and deaths — of her compelling characters" Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Although Smith is good on procedure, her heroine sounds inappropriately gee-whizzy at times, and the plot is not without its creaks. North to Montana created lots of Ana Grey fans, and most of them will want to see what she's up to here. Unfortunately, they may be disappointed." Connie Fletcher, Booklist

Review:

"Although Ana is not your conventional heroine...it's hard to peel your eyes from her — especially when she persists in pursuing Juliana's attacker while standing trial for attempted murder. A risk taker herself, Smith writes in the forceful style of a true literary maverick, someone who has earned the right to break a few rules." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Smith tells one heck of a crime story with tightly woven, suspenseful plots and lovable but terribly mixed-up protagonists. These women may fall short in the ability-to-have-a-normal-relationship category, but when it comes to honesty and dedication, they've got the bases covered." Carol Memmott, USA Today

Review:

"[G]rainy, urgent, syncopated, sinuously plotted and deftly delivered." The Los Angeles Times

Review:

"[A] fast-paced, well-written mystery....In the hands of a less competent writer, the overlapping, intertwined stories would be a tangled mess, but Smith deftly maintains control of her characters and the situations, resulting in a genuine page-turner. Highly recommended." Library Journal
