The division between North Dakota and Saskatchewan may be little more than an invisible line across a dry stretch of prairie. But in her richly textured detective novels, Trebitt transforms the border into a shady netherworld of shifting alliances, dangerous characters, and long-buried secrets. Blister’s Oak, her fourteenth, sees border patrol agent Becky Blister dealing with crises both internal and external: as her search for a missing surveying team takes a baffling turn, she finds that the labyrinths of her own mind prove harsh territory as well. The clipped, wintry prose will be a recognizable pleasure to longtime fans of Trebitt—and it’s a fitting introduction to newbies, who might be sent scrounging for the rest of the Blister canon.
