Peter Heller | Celine

p hellerFrom the best-selling author of The Dog Stars and The Painter, comes a new novel of suspense - the story of Celine, an elegant, aristocratic private eye who, trying to make amends for a loss in her own past, specializes in reuniting families. 

Peter Heller attended high school in Vermont and Dartmouth College in New Hampshire where he became an outdoorsman and whitewater kayaker. He is an award-winning adventure writer and a longtime contributor to NPR; a contributing editor at Outside magazine, Men's Journal, and National Geographic Adventure; as well as the author of four books of literary nonfiction. He lives in Denver, Colorado.

“Enviable wit and style . . . Heller is a gifted writer uniquely capable . . . of describing both the play of Colorado aspen leaves in the last week of September and the strange melancholy that can trigger in the heart of someone who has already seen more autumns than are left ahead of them . . . Celine is also such a joy to be with. To spend 300 pages with her is like stumbling across the sweetest, most dazzling grandma EVER at the corner bar, and then finding out three hours later that she was also a shooter for Mickey Cohen’s mob. Her well of surprises is bottomless . . . . Beautifully written.”
–Jason Sheehan, NPR.org
