About 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; her twenty-eighth novel and nineteenth Kate Shugak novel, Restless in the Grave, was published in February 2012. It features Liam Campbell as well.

Once Alaska state trooper sergeant Liam Campbell was on the fast track to success but tragedy struck, and he fell down on the job resulting in his exile to the small fishing town of Newenham, population 2000. He quickly distinguished himself by catching a serial killer leading to his superiors wanting him back in Anchorage.

Though he would have a more powerful position with more opportunities for promotion, Liam needs to think about the offer because the woman he loves has a home and business in Newenham. He also likes the townsfolk who honor and respect him and his badge. Before he can sort out his personal life, Liam is determined to find the killer of a seventy-four year old woman who he admired and was loved by most of the locals. It¿s a baffling case because there isn¿t any suspect or even a motive yet somebody is determined to keep the truth buried as that someone tries to kill Liam before he can unmask he perpetrator.

The beauty, the grandeur, and the danger of the Alaskan frontier come vividly alive through the writing of Dana Stabenow. The protagonist is a good person and an exceptional police officer because he believes in justice yet cares about the people depending on his protection. The absorbing and believable mystery is one of the better installments in the meritorious Liam Campbell series.

Great story! Great characters! Hope the author writes more of these.

The last published (to date) Liam Campbell mystery; another great tale with Liam and Wy, with a decent mystery that once again shows the ripple effects of crime on small-town Alaska, while developing their own relationship. The WWII history ties were neat as well, since the Alaskan experience in that period is unknown to most people. "BtR" leaves a lot of open ends for Liam, though, so the news that a fifth Liam book is forthcoming, probably in 2010, is definitely welcome.
