    A Night To Dark

    An excellent story, as are the rest of Ms, Stabenow. I became acquainted with two of her books while on visit to Alaska and now have about 15 of her books. Am trying to obtain ALL of her writings. Excellent

    an entertaining whodunit

    The Park in Alaska is a place of beauty to private detective Native American Kate Shugak, but the pristine landscape she loves will change when the Suulutaq Mine opens operations. Global Harvest Resources, the parent company learned the mine contains gold and after months of careful sampling and they know they have found quite a strike.

    Already the firm is making changes that the inhabitants of the Park have to adapt to as people working the mine come to the town of Ninikltna. One of the newcomers leaves a note in his car stating he committed suicide. When the body of Dewayne Gammons is found, there is not enough left of him to make an identification. Kate has a hunch after two people from the mine disappeared at the sane time that the deceased is not Dewayne, but she has no idea who the victim is. As she seeks clues, a third person is killed, which makes Kate even more determined to find out what is going on at the mine.

    Even before the homicides, Kate feels sad because the mining operation will change the Park though she is resigned that it will happen as people she respects sold out to the mining interests, which was not easy for them to do but they felt they had to tale advantage of people with money to spend. Still her melancholy over the mine does not prevent her from investigating as only she can. Her latest Alaskan Shootout is an entertaining whodunit that also showcases a difficult complex issue of needed economic development vs. maintaining the beauty of nature.

    These characters have become family, dysfunctions and all. I always relish the present book and look forward to the next.

    Great book!

    I love the series, and look forward to each new book. Love the story-line, the characters are vivid and real, and she portrays Alaska so clearly you feel like you are there. Great book! Wonderful series!

    STABENOW'S SERIES KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER

    AudioFile magazine describes Marguerite Gavin's voice as "sonorous..., rich and full of emotion.... She easily delivers wry humor [and] moves smoothly from accent to accent without hesitation, recalling multiple characters perfectly." Quite right. Her narration of A NIGHT TOO DARK is low key yet compelling as she returns to deliver another Kate Shugak thriller. Booklist writes "Gavin does justice to the complex character of Kate and those who enter her sphere...." So apropos because it may well be the complexity of Kate's character that keeps readers/listeners coming back for more. As for those who "enter her sphere," well.....
    In this, Stabenow's 17th novel to bring us PI Kate Shugak, the characters who cross her path (in addition to the love of her life Trooper Jim Chopin and her beloved Mutt who is half wolf half husky) are all affected by the Suulutaq Mine and the recently discovered large deposits of gold. The economic impact of this find is a bit more than Kate can relate to but finding a pickup with a suicide note in it but no driver is definitely up her alley. The sudden appearance of the supposed recently deceased complicates matters a bit, but leave it to Kate.
    Along the way environmental questions re the gold mine are raised, and we are treated to sharp portraits of that sometimes incomprehensible state Alaska. Stabenow and her series just get better and better with time - would that all of us would age as well.
    Enjoy!
    - Gail Cooke
