This gripping and timely novel that follows Sigrid—the dry-witted detective from Miller’s debut Norwegian By Night—from Oslo to the United States on a quest to find her missing brother. In the United States, Sigrid is plunged into American culture, where race and identity, politics and promise, reverberate in every aspect of daily life. Working with—or, if necessary, against—the police, she must negotiate the local political minefields to uncover the truth before events escalate further.
Refreshingly funny, slyly perceptive, AMERICAN BY DAY secures Derek B. Miller’s place as one of our most entertaining novelists.
Derek B. Miller has worked on international peace and security for think tanks, diplomatic missions, and the United Nations. He is the Dagger Award–winning author of two novels, Norwegian by Night and The Girl in Green.
