9780006513599: Red, White and Blue

From a bestselling author comes a wry, surprising and delightfully crafted novel that spans three generations in modern America.

Charlie Blair is a jaded FBI agent in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Estranged from his wife and daughter, when the opportunity to go undercover to monitor an anti-Semitic militia group that has drawn national attention in his hometown of Jackson Hole presents itself, he jumps at the chance to escape his grey life for a while. But undercover work is more lonely, and dangerous, than he anticipated…

Lauren Miller is a reporter for the Jewish News in New York. When she reads about the anti-Semitic violence in Wyoming, she sees her chance for her big break. What she doesn’t foresee is being attracted to a member of the very militia she has arrived to condemn.

When Charlie and Lauren finally meet, they find compelling but unlikely intersection in their own lives: he is barely aware of his own Jewish ancestors, and she is so assimilated her heritage hardly matters to her. But as the radical Right-wing group starts planning its most violent and explosive demonstration to date, they both must confront some very real truths about their lives, and each other.
