One of the best, and most complex, in the series. Kate's great uncle, Old Sam, dies and leaves her a homestead and a letter saying "Find my father." Both lead her on life-threatening chases. We learn much about Sam's early life and Alaskan history. Meantime, Jim's father dies, requiring a duty trip Outside that leads to life-changing discoveries for him. The focus on relationships here changes how both Kate and Jim view the world. The only weird thing is, in the large print edition, the cover shows a mush team that's not part of the story.
I haven't read Dana Stabenow for awhile. This book was an excellent read--plot storyline, everything. I'm going back to read her others. Also, what a way to see Alaska!!!
Kate Shugak is a great character who's tough, independent and thoughtful. A very enjoyable read.
Exciting mystery, strong heroine, and a mini-course in Alaska hisory.
I have enjoyed the Kate Shugak series over the years, and looked forward to the latest installment. I enjoyed the Alaska history and sense of place in this one, even though I'm beginning to tire of Kate as Superwoman.
The book was so poorly edited that I found it distracting: wrong words, missing words, incorrect punctuation. How can a publisher release a book in such shoddy condition?
I quit wasting my time on the first page.
wow...Stabenow continues to thrill and charm. Kate Shugak is an awesome character and it's difficult to put her down to do other things. I would recommend Stabenows books to anyone anytime. Great Read!!!
Whether it’s her outdoor Alaska setting, her native American female PI, Kate Shugak, or just her solid narrative skills, Dana Stabenow delivers a terrific mystery – even as the series hits book 18 – that incorporates Alaskan history and a little-known snippet of crime-fiction lore.
