Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestseller Dana Stabenow returns with her most outstanding novel yet, teaming up two of her most beloved characters, Aleut private investigator Kate Shugak and Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell, in the same story for the first time.
 
Alaska aviation entrepreneur Finn Grant died in the fiery crash of his Piper Super Cub. Someone sabotaged his engine, and virtually everyone in southwestern Alaska has a motive, including his betrayed wife, his bullied children, and Liams wife, bush pilot Wyanet Chouinard. With few places to turn, Liam asks his former mentor Niniltna post commander Sergeant Jim Chopin, for help, and Jim quickly brings Kate onto the case.
 
Working undercover as—of all things—a waitress at Bills Bar and Grill, Kate learns over beer and burgers that Grants business had expanded meteorically over the last two years. After buying the closed Air Force base south of town from the federal government at a bargain-basement price, he became a fixed-base operator running his fishing, hunting, and flight-seeing business, servicing planes flying through the area, and most interestingly and lucratively, getting into the air freight business. But what kind of freight was he moving, and where?
 
The answers involve Kate in her most challenging case to date, one that starts with murder and quickly sprawls into a much larger conspiracy ranging from the darkest family secrets to treason and beyond. Restless in the Grave is a treat for fans and another outstanding addition to Dana Stabenows acclaimed and award-winning series.

Review:

"Finn Grant's death in the crash of his small plane in an apparent act of sabotage raises the question: who would want the self-made billionaire dead? About half the population of southwest Alaska, as Kate Shugak discovers when she goes undercover as a barmaid in bestseller Stabenow's entertaining 19th novel featuring the brash, fearless PI (after 2011's Though Not Dead). Kate's shrewd and ceaseless prying reveals that the unsavory Grant was involved in blackmail, mail fraud, and embezzlement, all connected to Alaska's many small airlines. Kate has a casual approach to evidence gathering, and her skill at breaking and entering finds her eventually thrown into a chest freezer, tossed into a Dumpster, and locked inside a freight container while her stalwart and highly intelligent companion, Mutt, who's half-wolf, half-husky, provides assistance. Readers new to the series may be mystified by the many references to past episodes. Yet the book sparkles with energy and wit, and packs an unexpected punch. 100,000 first printing; author tour.

Restless in the Grave

Dana Stabenow

 

When aviation entrepreneur Finn Grant dies in the fiery crash of his Piper Super Cub, state trooper Liam Campbell has reason to believe its sabotage. Virtually everyone in southwestern Alaska has a motive—including Grants betrayed wife, his bullied children, and even Liams own wife, bush pilot Wyanet Chouinard. With few places to turn, Liam seeks outside help from the friend of a friend—a private investigator named Kate Shugak…

 

Working undercover as a waitress at Bills Bar and Grill in Newenham, Kate learns over beer and burgers that Grants business had expanded meteorically. After buying a closed Air Force base from the government, he ran a fixed-base operation for fishing, hunting, and flight-seeing, as well as a lucrative air freight service. But what kind of freight was he moving, and where? The answers lead Kate on her most challenging case yet, from the fateful wreckage to family secrets to full-scale conspiracy and beyond…

Once again, Dana captivates from page one. Every one of the Kate Shugak novels is an interesting read. This was a page turner from the get go. If you like mystery, the great outdoors and Alaskan/American history, much of which is not taught in traditional history classes, this is for you. I like that Dana shares the history of Alaska in her books so we outsiders can get a glimpse of the great state that many of us will never actually visit in our lifetime.
