Overview

Two crewmen of the crab vessel Avilda are missing—presumed dead—under very suspicious circumstances. The Bering Sea offers ample means and opportunity, but without bodies, a motive, or evidence of foul play, the DA doesn’t have a case. And so, freelance investigator Kate Shugak finds herself working undercover in one of Alaska’s most dangerous professions: crab fisherman. The assignment will take her from the debauchery of Dutch Harbor to the most isolated of the Aleutians, and if the job itself doesn’t kill her, her crewmates just might.

Third in Stabenow’s Edgar Award-winning series of Alaskan mysteries, Dead in the Water is richly informed by the author’s own upbringing aboard an Alaskan fishing vessel.

Editorial Reviews

Judith Kreiner
Understand, now, that mystery reviewers do not go out and buy mystery books [...] but after reading Dana Stabenow's Dead in the Water, I actually went out and spent my very own money to buy the two previous chapters in the adventures of Kate Shugak, Aleut investigator. [...] This one is right on target with its descriptions of the hardships of commercial fishing and the greed that motivates murder.
