About this title

Synopsis:

Change never comes easy, but it comes just the same, and it's on its way to the Park, to Niniltna, in southeast Alaska. This time it concerns the possibility of drilling for oil in a wildlife preserve near there, near Aleutian P.I. Kate Shugak's home territory. Battle lines are drawn across their community, but at least it gives Kate something to do. Still just months after her lover's violent death, though she doesn't know quite how, she is trying to get back into her daily life.

First, tensions run high as their resident park ranger, Dan O'Brien, is deemed "too green for them" by management and asked to take early retirement. Kate rallies the troops inside the Park to fight for his job, but before she can really start throwing her weight around, a long-time Park resident is brutally murdered, another stabbed and left for dead as well.

Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin enlists Kate to help investigate, and together they tackle the loose ends: motive, timing, opportunity, means. One thing is for certain-in Dana Stabenow's masterful crime novels about the beauty and the danger of living and dying in Alaska, nothing is as simple as it seems.

From the Inside Flap:

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
