"Romantic suspense with an edge"
Retired Braden, Montana botanist Frank Walton comes to
Brooklyn to "smell" the Brighton Beach "Little Russia"
neighborhood a reminder of his homeland. He needs this
because he knows he is dying from cancer. However, someone
recognizes him as Vaclav Waller, a Russian Nobel Prize
nominee, who died in a plane crash in 1970. Threatened to
be returned to Moscow, Frank chooses death.
The FBI cannot understand how a Russian supposedly dead
thirty years is a modern day murder victim. FBI agent Jack
Dolan travels to Braden, Montana, the last known address of
the victim, to ferret out the truth. In the remote small
town a very popular, extremely successful fertility clinic
services people from all over. The local boardinghouse
owned and operated by Isabella Abbott caters mostly to
clinic visitors, employers, and patients. Jack and Isabella
share the magnetism that draws them towards each other even
at their first encounter. Still, the Fed wonders how she
is involved in the secrets of a person who died "twice" and
the sensational accomplishments of the clinic run by her
family and friends?
WHITE MOUNTAIN is an exciting romantic intrigue that
starts off at a high level of tension and just keeps rising
until the tale is finished. The story line is fast-paced
whether its in Brooklyn or Braden. The lead couple is a
delight and the support cast brings out Brighten Beach and
Big Sky country so that readers will believe they have been
to both while perusing Dinah McCall's taut thriller.
