Overview

Inupiat police officer Ray Attla joins two of his police buddies for a three-day caribou hunt in the Alaskan Bush country. But when gear and supplies are lost, the trio fishes for food and pulls in the remains of a human head. Ray assumes the deceased fell victim to a tragic accident -- until he and the party are dodging bullets. Fleeing on foot to an archaeological dig, Ray suspects that unearthed artifacts are not the only remains to be uncovered. Coincidentally, or at the hands of the Inupiat gods, Ray encounters a young Athabascan girl who is gifted with a "special sight". The girl's visions arm Ray with fragments of information and he follows her lead into the wilderness to hunt a cagey killer who has declared open season on the police officer.

I'm an Alaska Native from northern Alaska...this book is awful, laughable even. A local Native woman telling her husband not to go hunting because "hunting is barbaric?" PLEASE. The "accents" are silly and offensive. I only read the first couple of chapters and had to stop...but my teenage daughter and I had fun reading the dialog aloud. Haven't laughed that hard in awhile!

But was a robot in charge of editing? Even spell-check makes more sense than some of the choices made by this editor. Liked the story tho. Also, i find it juvenile that some headcases write phony reviews in code. But i'll give it a try: perkytwaddly!

A sliver cat walked into camp, her amber eyes burnt like fire. ((Am I in EskimoClan?)) She thought looking around. She sat down and groomed herself she waited awile. Then she fell asleep.
