It is New Year's Eve, nearly six weeks into an off-and-on blizzard that has locked Alaska down, effectively cutting it off from the outside world. But now there are reports of a plane down in the Quilak mountains. With the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board — responsible for investigating aviation incidents) unable to reach the crash site, ex-Trooper Jim Chopin is pulled out of retirement to try to identify the aircraft, collect the corpses, and determine why no flight has been reported missing. But Jim discovers survivors: two children who don't speak a word of English. Meanwhile, PI Kate Shugak receives an unexpected and unwelcome accusation from beyond the grave, a charge that could change the face of the Park forever.

The story opens on a New Year’s eve and a horrific plane crash into the side of a mountain in remote Alaska during a six-week-old blizzard. There are two survivors, both children, who are rescued and taken to a nearby village. Also surviving is a large bag full of packets of fentanyl. Retired state trooper Jim Chopin is asked to investigate the crash, the drugs, and the children, neither of whom speak English. Kate Shugak, aprivate investigator, is of course pulled into the investigation, too. Kate has other things to worry about—she and her wolf, Mutt, have recently recovered from having been shot, and now someone is trying to kill her again. Plus, she’s been named trustee of the estate of her recently deceased archnemesis and doesn’t know why and doesn’t want the job. This is the 22nd entry in the Kate Shugak series and it has all the earmarks of the previous books. The intrepid Kate sets out to right a wrong with no regard to her personal safety. The other main character in the previous twenty-one books, Alaska, again has a prominent role. Stabenow has given her fans a book that will please them. Her descriptions of Alaska are once again so well done, that the reader will feel compelled to draw a blanket over her as the blizzard rages around them. If you’ve not yet met Kate and the other denizens of the Park, not to worry. Stabenow has done an outstanding job of ensuring that the new reader knows Kate and the others without rehashing every detail that will bore those who have been reading about Kate since her first book in the series, “A Cold Day for Murder” (1992). My thanks to Head of Zeus and Edelweiss for an eARC.
