Wildcat Play: A Mystery by Helen Knode

<p>As a hipster movie critic, Ann Whitehead pushed a Hollywood murder case to a bloody climax and almost died herself. Changed forever-less stupid and more fun-she has moved on to a place she knows well-the San Joaquin Valley, where her grandfather’s closest friend, Joe Balch, owns the oil company that keeps one town alive.</p> <p><br /> Balch gets Ann a job with the Oklahoma company drilling</p> <p>his wildcat well. It’s hard work, but Ann loves both it and</p> <p>her crusty old boss, Emmet. Then a guy on her crew is killed</p> <p>by a falling hammer. Sheriffs rule it an accident but Ann’s</p> <p>LAPD squeeze, Detective Doug Lockwood, says it’s murder.</p> <p>Ann can’t resist the challenge of chasing a killer - and then</p> <p>the killer starts chasing her back . . .</p> <p><br /> From a writer whose first novel was praised as highly</p> <p>literate, exceptionally action-packed and occasionally harrowing (<i>Chicago Tribune</i>), this is a wild ride - full of</p> <p>bad behavior and laughs, oilfield characters and smalltown</p> <p>atmosphere - starring a heroine who never does</p> <p>anything halfway.</p
