9781455830831: A Cold Day for Murder (Kate Shugak Series)

Eighteen months ago, Aleut Kate Shugak quit her job investigating sex crimes for the Anchorage DA’s office and retreated to her father’s homestead in a national park in the interior of Alaska. But the world has a way of beating a path to her door, however remote. In the middle of one of the bitterest Decembers in recent memory ex-boss ― and ex-lover ― Jack Morgan shows up with an FBI agent in tow. A Park ranger with powerful relatives is missing, and now the investigator Jack sent in to look for him is missing, too. Reluctantly, Kate, along with Mutt, her half-wolf, half-husky sidekick, leaves her wilderness refuge to follow a frozen trail through the Park, twenty thousand square miles of mountain and tundra sparsely populated with hunters, fishermen, trappers, mushers, pilots and homesteaders. Her formidable grandmother and Native chief, Ekaterina Shugak, is ― for reasons of her own ― against Kate’s investigation; her cousin, Martin, may be Kate’s prime suspect; and the local trooper, Jim Chopin, is more interested in Kate than in her investigation. In the end, the sanctuary she sought after five and a half years in the urban jungles may prove more lethal than anything she left behind in the city streets of Anchorage.

About the Author:

Dana Stabenow is the Edgar Award-winning author of Fire and Ice, So Sure of Death, and several other acclaimed mysteries. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

From AudioFile:

Fans of the Kate Shugak mysteries will welcome this audio rendition of the first in the series. Marguerite Gavin has found a voice for Kate that captures--without being grating--a voice frazzled and nearly silenced in the violent struggle that caused Kate to leave her job as an investigator for the Anchorage D.A.'s office. This story finds her living in near isolation in her Aleut homeland, where she is asked to once again use her skills as an investigator when a park ranger disappears. In Gavin's care, the listener can imagine the somewhat eccentric characters. Gavin's characterization reflects their motivations and personalities as they do little to help Kate unravel this gnarly puzzle. One hopes that this is just the first of the series to be presented on tape. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
