Staff Reviews

Born into a life of immense privilege and influence, Celine is as at home in the most glamorous cities in the world as in a pop-up trailer in the wilderness. She's an artist, and also a Glock-toting P.I. who uses her prodigious covert-ops skills and connections to defend the underdog, often works pro bono, and specializes in reuniting birth families. When Gabriela seeks out Celine to help uncover the truth about her father’s disappearance twenty years before (supposedly mauled by a bear), Celine can't resist. The trail leads past some heroic characters and acts of bravery on both personal and global scales. It's a thrilling chase. The heartbreak is that no heroics can prevent us from failing each other - even the ones we love the most - at some point. No act of love goes unpunished. And sometimes people just do terrible things. Plagued by her own scars, it's Celine's determination to keep living and loving and daring and facing down danger and darkness which is a true inspiration. She is a model of courage and grace. Celine is a sweet and powerful ode to love and life.

“There should be an excused absence from life when a new Peter Heller novel is released to the world. There is a pace and a quality to his writing that will make you want to drink it down in one gulp. Heller's strong narrative voice and complex plotting have always stood out to me and Celine is another example of this. Loosely based on Heller's mother, Celine is a hard-nosed - if a bit worn down - private investigator living in post-9/11 Brooklyn. She has a stellar reputation, but when she is sent on a case to locate a young woman's missing father, it's clear that her age (and lifestyle) has caught up with her. You will fall in love with Celine and connect with everyone who populates this book. I would give just about anything to follow her on more adventures.”
— Katelyn Phillips (E), WORD, Brooklyn, NY


Working out of her jewel box of an apartment at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, Celine has made a career of tracking down missing persons, and she has a better record at it than the FBI.
