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 twentiethh Kate Shugak novel, Bad Blood, will be released in February 2013.

Lots of local color, maybe a little too much detail about how the salmon fishing season works in Alaska, but it's hard to find anything to complain about. A somewhat surprising villain, but really just all my favorite characters back for another round.

Enjoyed it. Once again Dana Stabenow provides a well-researched and fast moving adventure with her protagonist Kate Shugak.

So many suspects, so many motives. With wit and luck, Kate just wades through them.

I have all the Kate Shugak books in both hardback and ebook. They are all exceptionally well-written, with characters who become more real with each book. I would highly recommend these books, as well as Ms. Stabenow's other series (the Liam Campbell books), to anyone who enjoys an excellent mystery, fascinating people and interesting and unusual situations.

When you finish one of these books, you can't wait to start another. I love the characters and any books set in the Alaskan Frontier. The stories are great and so are the descriptions of the Bush.
