In this sequel to Grimes's Biting the Moon, Andi Oliver, amnesiac and drifter, is still running from the memory - her only memory - of an occurrence in a Santa Fe bed-and-breakfast. Forced to invent details of her past as she manages to hang on to a precarious present ("Lying," says one co-worker, "it's what the girl does."), Andi moves from one small-town job to another across Idaho, across Montana, and into North Dakota. In Dakota she gets herself hired at Klavan's, a massive pig farming facility that specializes in the dark art of modern livestock management. As Andi begins to uncover the truth about Klavan's and its sister facility, Big Sun, a stranger out of her past, who has been stalking her for more than a year, appears at her door demanding information of which she has no memory. Dakota signals the return of one of Martha Grimes's most intrepid heroines, a young woman who invents her life step-by-step as she moves through a landscape that throws up one danger after another. Set against the breathtakingly expansive background of the plains, Dakota will reward Grimes's legion of fans, and readers of western literature as a whole.

display_description Young Andi Oliver is an amnesiac and drifter who awoke in a Santa Fe bed and breakfast with a man's 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, until she takes a job at Klavan's, a massive pigfarming facility that specializes in the dark art of modern livestock management. As Andi begins to uncover the truth about Klavan's 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.--From publisher description.
