Village of the Ghost Bears: A Nathan Active Mystery Set in Alaska by Stan Jones

The fourth Nathan Active mystery

Alaska State Trooper Nathan Active must figure out what connects a dead hunter on a remote Arctic lake with a year-old fatal plane crash in the Brooks Range and an arson at the Chukchi Recreation Center.

Active’s investigation leads him to a lucrative polar-bear poaching operation and a brother and sister with an intense bond from a village famous for twins, polar bears, and schizophrenia.

Nathan Active must make some life-changing decisions both professional and personal in this fourth book of the series. A village rec center fire that turns out to be arson and mass murder and a body Active and his girlfriend find on a wilderness excursion draw him into a complex case of jealousy, revenge, and polar bear gall bladder smuggling. Stan Jones is our guide to the alien world of the Inupiaq (native Alaskan) people where life is lived on the edge. The descriptions of their existence and the Arctic landscape elevate the novel from a detective story to something more. Active is our eyes as we follow the investigation. He is no Superman, no all seeing figure like Sherlock Holmes or Nero Wolfe, just a fallible individual trying to do his job. I recommend the entire series.
