Montana, "the last best place" of the disappearing American West, is the setting of Peter Bowen's splendid mystery novel, the first in a series to feature Gabriel Du Pre. Du Pre, a cattle brand inspector and occasional sheriff's deputy, moves easily among the ranchers, cowboys, Native Americans, barflies, dreamers, and Eastern dudes who populate what's left of the frontier. A mixed-blood French-Indian, Du Pre prefers the company of his lover Madelaine, and his daughters, who affect him in ways he can't predict and won't admit to his less-gentle acquaintances. Against his will, Du Pre

Rex walks the Montana plains, hungry to strike again...

Relying on intuition as much as hard evidence, Gabriel Du Pré turns his trained eye on the trail of the monster, or monsters, responsible for a horrific string of murders in Montana. The initial clues are few, and identification is impossible because the victims--all young women--were discovered with their lower jaws and teeth removed. The case hits close to home when the daughter of Du Pré's lover, Madelaine, turns up missing. Working with G-man Harvey Wallace, Du Pré begins, almost unconsciously at first, to mirror the patterns of a serial killer in a desperate attempt to prevent another
