Overview

It's a crisp, snowless October. The root cellar is full, the cordwood is stacked, the oil drums are topped-up and there’s a freshly-butchered moose in her cache, but Kate Shugak must leave her secluded cabin in The Park and head into the chaos of Anchorage, where the Alaska Federation of Natives’ annual convention is being held. Why? Because board members of the Niniltna Native Association have been dying… board members who just happened to oppose a lucrative new development project. If it’s just a coincidence, perhaps Kate will find nothing, but this is Alaska—politics and profit are constantly at odds with conservation and traditional practices, and anyone looking too closely is likely to discover something unsavory.

Meet the Author

Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on 75-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and after having a grand old time working in the Prudhoe Bay oilfields on the North Slope of Alaska, making an obscene amount of money and going to Hawaii a lot, found it in writing.
Her first crime fiction novel, A Cold Day for Murder, won an Edgar award; her first thriller, Blindfold Game, hit the New York Times bestseller list; the twentieth Kate Shugak novel, Bad Blood, will be released in February 2013.

    Hooked on this series.

    I get so involved with the characters in this series, I care about each and every one of them. Dana Stabenow builds characters of the Alaskan Bush better than any other Alaskan author. She knows the strengths and struggles of the people and the culture. If you haven't met her "Emma", Grandmother, or the dozens of cousins from the Park, you must read her books. Her love and respect for the land, rivers, ocean,animals the bush and the villagers is so typical of the elders of this strong noble country. This book clearly lays out the complexities and turmoil of the tribes struggling to reamin independent and true to their culture, or become submissive to government control and become yet another welfare society or being cheated by unscroupulous companies. Dana Stabenow always writes with twists to her mysteries. I love this series.

    Sadness in Kate's life

    Kate and Jack get more involved in Native v Outsider politics and something happens that causes Kate deep sorrow. Some of the exposition in this story was a little TMI for me as a resident of the lower 48-- in places it felt a little more like a textbook on Alaskan history and politics than a novel-- but more knowledge never hurts. I am a loyal fan and will keep reading this delightful series.

    My Favorite So Far!!

    In this story, we get to see how strong a person Kate really is. From shooting a moose outside her isolated cabin to the unwanted dealings of politics at the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage. In between all this, there's history, mystery, a little romance, (gotta love Jack) humor, and sadness. All great qualities I look for when reading a book.

    This is the real Alaska

    This is the best book in the entire Kate Shugak series. Kate is in her element, torn between two worlds and then coming to terms with both. The murder, mystery, and mayhem unfold with the cast of supporting characters that include the people, cultures and land of Alaska. Stabenow is a master storyteller. That is all.

    Ugh

    Couldn't even read this, with all the wanton killing of animals. Disgusting! I want my money back. There should be warnings about this kind of stuff in the description.

    Good Book

    Another good book in the Shugak series although there is a lot of detail that I skipped over.

    Following Kate Shugak

    I have enjoyed this character. She is gritty and resilent. I admire her ability to take care of herself thru everything and then some. She gives much to her community and seems to follow her own rules.

    Dana Stabenow loves to give descriptions of everything and sometimes they go on forever, but following the story requires that you know where you are and what is coming. This Alaska that she describes has made me appreciate the changes that "colonization" brought to the Natives.
