I usually read a couple of books set in whatever state my husband and I are currently in. I’m really enjoying books set in Alaska so I’ve read more than usual. Add this one to the list. It was a solid, quick mystery that left me guessing. Something about the syntax of the writing did leave me re-reading sentences a few times here and there for clarity though.

I like Kate, the main character, a lot and I like that she’s an Alaskan Native but I wasn’t completely comfortable with the fact that every Native character other than her was an unemployed, alcoholic poacher. Kate does say that her people are more than that stereotype but I just felt there could have been better representation. Show me, don’t tell me, right? This was published in 1992 though, so hopefully the series (at 22 books and counting) better addresses the issue as it goes along.

I’ll continue with the series when I can find them in libraries. ( )

Am starting to reread the Kate Shugak mysteries again. Got this one as a ebook freebie from Pixel of Ink and went searching for the rest of them. I didn't know it was up to number 18, I stopped getting the to read about 9 or 10 I think. Anyway, it was a nice visit back to a good series, and am looking forward to when I get to the ones I haven't read before. Kate is an interesting character, complex, fierce, and very believable. It's good to be with her again. In fact, this series is so good, that after I made my annual trip to the Coinstar machine with my change bucket, I got in all in an Amazon certificate and spent in all on Kate Shugak ebooks. So my reading is lined up for a while lol. ( )

An Alaskan native, Kate Shugak, is hired to investigate the disappearance of a Park ranger and former colleague/boyfriend. Not as good at the Jane Whitefield series by Thomas Perry, but interesting insight into how Alaskans perceive themselves and nice to see a strong female protagonist. ( )

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 stars - I really liked it.

Katya (Kate) Shugak is a force to behold.

We meet her in her homestead, secluded in the cold and quiet of Alaska, scarred, angry, and dragging a past that haunts her. She felt terribly real and tragically raw, and she greatly appealed to me as a character. The mystery she chases winds and draws from and around the people of the Park, and pulls the reader along with Kate as she follows the trail.

I found myself entirely impressed with Stabenow's explanations of the land, Park, people, and dynamics within the book.

Some of my favorite quotes from the book:

▪️ She had never minimized the dangers of the Park and its inhabitants, be they on four legs or two, which not least dangerous of the two-legged variety was the old woman sitting across from her now.

▪️ It was a bitter and entirely unamusing sound, Kate’s laughter, and Kate let it die a natural death.

▪️ Kate smiled kindly at the young man, showing all her teeth. He flinched perceptibly. ( )

Former District Attorney Investigator, Kate Shugak, retired after having her throat cut while capturing a serial killer. Both physically and emotionally scarred she now lives alone on her 160 acre homestead in Alaska. When a rookie park ranger and son of a congressmen goes missing in a huge wilderness area known as the 1CPark 1D an investigator and friend of Kate's is sent to find him and now he's missing too. Former lover and boss, Jack Morgan, convinces her to go looking for the missing men because Kate's Aleut family lives in the 1CPark 1D and she might be able to use that to her advantage in hunting for the missing men. Before long she discovers some of her extended family members may be involved in the disappearance.

Kate is a well done character battling the memories and nightmares of the tragedy of her last investigation for the DA's office. The author does a really great job of character development and how Kate balances between the two worlds of her former Anchorage life and her Native Alaskan heritage. Every dog lover will fall for Mutt, Kate's half husky, half wolf dog. Alaska is the show here much the way Minnesota is in the Cork O'Connor series. The sparse frozen land and native culture is a character in itself.

This was a well written story set in a fascinating setting. Kate is a strong character and a no-nonsense problem solver. It's an intriguing and enjoyable introduction to series and I plan to read more.
