    more from this reviewer

    Excellent Alaskan mystery

    Jack died over a year ago but Kate remains in shock as she still feels the pain of his death as if it happened yesterday. A former police officer and sometimes private detective Kate Shugak, a full-blooded Inuit, harbors her dead lover's teenage white son Johnny. The fourteen-year old young adult refuses to live in the lower forty-eight states 0or reside with his mother who hates Kate. <P>With another mouth to feed and potential future legal fees, Kate leaves Johnny on the homestead to accept work as a bodyguard to Anne Gordaoff, a senatorial candidate. Anne has been receiving escalating threats that require her to hire Kate. While Kate protects her client, someone murders The candidate¿s son-in-law and a staffer leaving it up to Kate to unravel the truth before someone else is hurt. <P> The latest Shugak novel gives readers an early twentieth century Alaskan history lesson and how past events three generations ago relate to the present murders. The mystery is cleverly developed and the sexual tension between Kate and Trooper Jim is so thick the murder weapon cannot slice through it. That 'non-relationship' bears future watching as Dana Stabenow continues to provide her audience with tales they enjoy reading. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Can't get any better

    I love this series so much I'm at the point of starting to ration the books so I don't catch up too quickly. I don't see how the author could improve on Kate Shugak, her life and her friends. Another reviewer has disclosed the plot sufficently, so I needn't go into that. Lee Childs' Jack Reacher series has been my longtime favorite, but Dana Stabenow is now tied for favorite. Anyone who likes murder mystery series, especially any with a great female protagonist and a good sprinkling of humor and sex in the mix, should definitely get crackin' on these!

    Highly Recommend

    Just another wonderful story in a great series! Highly recommend this series. Having just visited Alaska this year, Ms. Stabenow really brings it all to life again.

    Stabenow and Shugak Do It Again

    A definite page-turner. I appreciate Stabenow's continuation of the story of Kate Shugak, and learning more about Kate's history at the same time. I especially loved the little twist of history at the end of the book.
