Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Stabenow's hardcover debut marks the fourth outing for Kate Shugak (last seen in Dead in the Water ), a native Aleut who is building a solid reputation as a tough freelance investigator. Although Kate has no love for the oil companies drilling in Alaska, she accepts a commission from Royal Petroleum Co. to find out who is bringing drugs into the Prudhoe Bay work site where there have been several overdoses and one death. Over the objections of RPetCo's security chief, Lou Childress, Kate goes in as an employee, getting a good look at her surroundings as a driver for Toni Hartzler, who gives PR tours to visiting dignitaries. She gains an instant "in" with the locals when she encounters Jerry McIsaac, an old acquaintance who works there as a medic. Kate spots plenty of drugs at her first party but doesn't observe anyone dealing. Of equal interest to her are the Native American artifacts being unearthed by archeologists at a local dig. While Kate is getting caught up in artifacts, she fails to notice that the dealers themselves are playing sleuth, putting her in danger. Throughout, Stabenow makes effective use of the regional setting, culture and Kate's personal heritage to add depth and color to this brisk and thoughtful tale. Mystery Guild alternate.

From School Library Journal

YA-This title finds Kate Shugak investigating apparent drug trafficking among the oil workers of the Royal Petroleum Corporation in the Arctic Circle. She has been recommended for the job for several reasons-her Aleutian roots, her past experience in the Anchorage District Attorney's office, and her outstanding record. Readers will not be overly surprised by the unraveling of the case, but they will find the several story lines to be enjoyable. As Kate locates the source of the illegal drugs, so are the subplots revealed, producing a unified, engaging read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hermit detective needs better"back-up" and more humor. 13 mars 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I bought the first book of the series while on a cruise to Alaska. I like sampling local writers' work. I thought the topic uniquely Alaskan, which is what I was looking for. A female author writing about a female character of native descent was also appealing to me. I think the character has already grown old to me by Book #4. The flawed detective that's really good at their job and nothing else is a standard character in crime fiction. Kate is also, by the very nature of her birth, a spokesperson for her "people" and actually too self-sufficient to be a classic detective. She doesn't need the help of her elders, although respectful of them, or the love of her man, who constantly sends her into harm's way without backup. She has no addition accept grease and sugar based food, which apparently has no negative consequences on her stock but trim little body. I keep looking for a character in the book that I can really relate to and haven't found one. I want too many things from this character. I want her man to show true concern for the woman he loves. I want Kate to struggle with her weight and to be quick with the "come-bask" lines. I want the side characters to be interesting enough to have their own series of books (these characters are a serious part of the Lead Character's family and major arsenal). So the plots are fine, the settings authentic but the characters need to be more sympathetic and relate more with the average "Joe", like me, with more humor and depth. This applies to Kate the most. I'll give the series a rest for several months or a year then read Book #5 and see if I remember anyone I truly like.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Kate Shugak, the pipeline and drugs 31 octobre 2011
Par S. Warfield - Publié sur Amazon.com

The oilfields of Alaska's North Slope is the setting for the fourth installment in Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak series, A COLD-BLOODED BUSINESS. Kate is a native Aleut who is a private investigator and this time she takes on a job that takes her to the oilfields where life is lived under harsh conditions, with employees working in isolated conditions and a hard-partying lifestyle after hours is ignored by management.

Kate is asked to go undercover as an employee for Royal Petroleum to find out who is dealing drugs that have caused several overdoses and a death at RPetCo. Jack, the Anchorage DA, has asked Kate to take this job and for good pay, more money than Kate has seen in a long time. She agrees to take the job and goes to the North Slope of Prudhoe Bay as a driver taking dignitaries on PR tours. Kate finds out soon enough that this is not going to be an easy job. While she is there, there is an archeological dig going on and some Native American artifacts are found which Kate is very interested in and she gets caught up in the findings. This becomes a distraction to her as she goes about her investigation to find the drug dealer.

This is the slowest of the first four in the series for me. Usually I read Stabenow's Shugak novels in two sittings, if not one, but I thought this one dragged on a bit. I enjoyed it, but not until the end did it really pick up and I was on the edge of my seat and turning pages fast. However, the artifacts were of interest and as always, the setting is a major part of the story, and this one was cold and unforgiving. Mutt, Kate's dog, is present as always, and it wouldn't be a Kate Shugak novel without her best canine friend.

I highly recommend this series to mystery lovers and to readers who like the outdoors and especially for those with interests in Alaska and its native culture.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Another mystery in Alaska 18 juillet 2013

I have read all the earlier books in the series. I have enjoyed learning about life in Alaska, the native experience of her protagonist, commercial fishing, etc. I doubt there is another series that would open the door better to life in Alaska and do so by couching it in a series of entertaining mysteries. It has been fun to watch Ms Stabenow grow as a writer. Her work is maturing and I continue in the series because her characters are rich in texture and engaging.

That said, this was not one of my favorites. The story line was weak and I felt the attacks on "Christians", all of who were grouped together, constituted a cheap shot. While I am not a fundamentalist or a proponent of any approach that is disrespectul to the position of others ( I do not believe it works), I felt Ms Stabenow, who typically takes the time and patience to develop characters beyond the cardboard or "prop" stage, completely failed to do so in this book and can reasonably be accused of the same biasis; albeit in reverse. It is wrong to see people as members of a group, culture, color, position or status rather than as individuals with all their strengths and weaknesses. Given the characters about which she writes so well, I am surprised and disappointed that Ms Stabenow would weaken her book by stooping to stereotyping.

Stabenow's books are among my perennial favorites. Great writing, great characters, the best of which is Alaska.

Once you read one of these books in the Kate Shugak series, you just have to stop and buy the first book to read them
all in sequence. It's like living in Alaska right along side of her. What a great series. If i comment on one book, I have commented on all the books in the Kate Shugak series. You cannot find a better read, and the author did an excellent job of writing these books. The history of Alaska through Kate Shugak's eyes is so amazing and forthwith. Just love them. I truly recommend you start from the first book and you can take it from there.
