Publisher Comments:

A Night Too Dark is New York Times-bestselling writer Dana Stabenow's latest, the seventeenth in a series chronicling life, death, love, tragedy, mischief, controversy, nature, and survival in Alaska, America's last real frontier.

In Alaska, people disappear every day. In Aleut detective Kate Shugak's Park, they've been disappearing a lot lately. Hikers head into the wilderness unprepared and get lost. Miners quit without notice at the busy Suulutaq Mine. Suicides leave farewell notes and vanish.

Not only are Park rats disappearing at an alarming rate, but so is life in the Park as Kate knows it. Alaska state trooper Jim Chopin's workload has increased to where he doesn't make it home three nights out of four, the controversial mine has seduced Johnny and his classmates with summer jobs and divided the Niniltna Native Association — the aunties are to a woman selling out — and a hostile environmental activist organization has embraced the Suulutaq Mine as their reason for being.

It's almost a relief when Kate finds a body. This she can handle.

Until the identity of the body vanishes, too.

In this latest Kate Shugak novel, the smart, sexy PI, her wolf/husky hybrid Mutt, and Chopper Jim are only just beginning to realize the fallout from the discovery of the world's second-largest gold mine in their backyard. Mine change everything, Auntie Vi said in Whisper to the Blood (the previous book in the series and the first to hit the <>New York Times bestseller list).

And it's only just beginning.

Review:

"Bestseller Stabenow deftly explores the environmental and economic impact of gold mining in her sizzling 17th novel to feature Alaska PI Kate Shugak (after 2009's Whisper to the Blood). Global Harvest Resources is intent on opening the Suulutaq Mine, where substantial deposits of gold, copper, and molybdenum have been found on state leases in the middle of the Iqaluk Wildlife Refuge, 50 miles from Niniltna. When Kate, 'chair of the board of directors of the Niniltna Native Association,' and state trooper Jim Chopin find bear-eaten human remains near the truck of Global Harvest roustabout Dewayne A. Gammons, they assume the remains are Gammons's. After all, there was a suicide note in Gammons's truck. Weeks later, a wounded and nearly catatonic Gammons emerges from the woods near Kate's homestead. More puzzles — and murder — follow. An uneasy resolution to the crimes suggests further drama ahead for Kate and her fellow 'Park rats.' Author tour. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In Alaska, somebody disappears every day. Hunters who head into the wilderness… Fishermen who brave the great rivers…Tourists who attempt to do both. In Aleut detective Kate Shugaks Park, people have been falling off the grid quite a bit lately. And as she and state trooper Jim Chopin are about to realize, its got something to do with the recent discovery of the worlds second-largest gold mine in their very own backyard.

A hostile environmental activist organization has embraced Alaskas Suulutaq Mine as its reason for being, attracting more attention than many of the locals can tolerate. So its almost a relief when Kate finally finds a body&#8212;this, more than politics, she can handle. Until the identity of the body vanishes, too… Now its up to Kate and Jim to dig deeper into the mining controversy and find the truth about whats going on in her homeland. Even if that means facing down an enemy who will kill to keep certain secrets buried…

Reading a Kate Shugak mystery is like going back home to check in with old friends. Dana Stabenow's characters come alive under her literate and beguiling prose. Each book of the series s a stand-alone, but should be read in order since they follow the progression of Kate's life with its real world ups and downs. As in real life, newcomers arrive and not all are welcome and old friends leave to be mourned and missed. While not always essential to the plot, these comings and goings are what lends the feel of reality to Stabenow's books.

It's been a while since I read Ms. Stabenow. Like old friens, we've been apart so long and yet we're able to pick up right where we left off. A Night Too Dark was a good book to come home to. I was won't stray too far or too long again.
