Overview

Work hard, play hard. That's the credo on the oilfields of Alaska’s North Slope, where harsh conditions and long, isolated shifts make for some of the best-paid jobs in the state. Management typically turns a blind eye to off-hours drinking and gambling, but a spate of drug-related deaths means it's time for Royal Petroleum to get its house in order. Working on behalf of the Anchorage DA, Kate Shugak is brought in undercover to identify the dealer and shut down the flow of cocaine. Of course, the dealer might have some very different ideas.

Informed by her own years working on the North Slope, Dana Stabenow’s ”A Cold-Blooded Business” captures a slice of life in a very Alaskan milieu.

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; and her twentieth Kate Shugak novel, Bad Blood, will be published in February 2013.

Find her on the web at stabenow.com.

    Highly Recommended

    No one can write about small Alaskan villages, bush pilots and life in the Park like Dana Stabenow. She knows it and has lived it. Another great book.

    Wonderful!!!

    Another great read in the Kate Shugak series. I guess I like these books so much because they're fast mystery reads with great descriptions of Alaska and it's people and cultures. Patiently waiting for the 5th in ebook form to come out!

    Highly recommended

    I have found that I love all of Dana Stabenow's books, not only for the stories which became more and more well-written, but also for all of the history of the natives and Alaska.

    Readers need to start from #1 of the series in order to keep up with the characters.

    I really enjoyed this book.

    Some of her books begin slowly but end strong. However, this book was good from the beginning!

    I walk up & slash the shecat across the face blinding her. Then i grab her by the neck & twist her head sharply, breaking her neck & killing her instantly. I look up, my fangs stained red. "Hows that?" I say to Shadowclaw.

    Prophecy

    The silver shining stars of night will swallow the writhing figures of fright

    The swift claws will rip through the flesh of all of those who are evil.

    The starry claws will shine with might

    And a new Clan will be bathed with light

    The evil ones will fail their plight

    As the wings of those good prevail.
