Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outstanding Praise For...

A Fine and Bitter Snow

"Stabenow uses the merciless magnificence of her state to create a stunning backdrop for her intense and intelligent mysteries."-St. Petersburg Times

"An intelligent crime novel that reflects both [Stabenow's] love of wilderness and her understanding of the complex questions of profit versus the purity of the frontier." -Dallas Morning News

The Singing of the Dead

"With well-drawn characters, splendid scenery, and an insider's knowledge of Alaskan history and politics, this fine novel ranks as one of Stabenow's best."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Every time I think Dana Stabenow has gotten as good as she can get, she comes up with something better."--Washington Times

"The Alaskan wilderness is as much a character as any of the realistic, down-to-earth folks who people her novels."-Kirkus Reviews

Edgar Award-Winner Dana Stabenow and the Kate Shugak Novels

"Dana Stabenow excels at evoking the bleakness and beauty of the far north."--Seattle Times/Post Intelligencer

"If you haven't discovered this splendid North Country series, now is the time...highly entertaining."--USA Today

"Stabenow's stories...are lifted out of the ordinary by her splendid evocation of the Alaskan frontier, beautiful but dangerous, and its idiosyncratic and intriguing inhabitants."--San Diego Union Tribune

"One of the strongest voices in crime fiction."--Seattle Times

"Alaska's finest mystery writer."--Anchorage Daily News

"Stabenow is completely at ease with her detective and her environment. The Alaskan wilderness is as much a character as any of the realistic, down-to-earth folks who people her novel."--Dallas Morning News

"Stabenow's...books are always welcome for their Alaskan scenes and their true-to-life characters."--Rocky Mountain News

"Author Dana Stabenow displays a remarkable sense of pace in Killing Grounds. The wild Alaska [that] tourists seldom see comes to vivid, sprawling life. It's an interesting plot with vital characters."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"These Kate Shugak mysteries are seriously addictive. It is hard to put them down once you start."--Fairbanks Daily News

Synopsis:

Change never comes easy so when the news breaks that the new administration oil might be drilling for oil soon in a wildlife preserve in southeastern Alaska, home to P.I. Kate Shugak, battle lines are quickly drawn across the community. But for Kate, who hasn't been able to get back into her daily life ever since her lover's violent death a few months ago, it's a welcome reprieve from doing nothing.

Tensions run high when Kate's friend and chief park ranger, Dan O'Brien, is deemed "too green" for them by management and asked to take early retirement. Kate rallies the troops to fight for his job, but before she can really start throwing her weight around, a longtime resident is found brutally murdered. Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin enlists Kate in the investigation, and it isn't long before she discovers that when it comes to the beauty and danger of living and dying in Alaska, nothing is as simple as it seems...
