Almost two years ago, the very beautiful, skilled, intelligent, accomplished full blooded Aleut Kate Shugak resigned her position as a detective for the Anchorage District Attorney's. Her four years as one of the most successful sex crimes investigators came to screeching halt.
After a life and death traumatic situation, Kate heads to her refuge on her father's primitive homestead cabin in the Alaskian Bush located in a national park in the interior of Alaska. She is soon surrounded by her "village" of family & friends that are "blood" bound to help her heal. She is one of the descendants of a very powerful family lineage that she has deliberately ignored for 8 years but soon realizes what an important part she plays in the intricate design of such a powerful and magnificent race of people.
Kate is recovering and exploring her new life back home content with baking bread every day, hunting, fishing and storing her food along with chopping her own wood and doing odd jobs here and there to get by. Her calm peaceful new life is interrupted when her ex-boss & ex-lover (hunky & yummy)Jack Morgan shows up unexpectedly to ask for her help in locating a missing Park Ranger and the missing detective that was sent in to locate him. It just happens to be one of the coldest Decembers in recent memory.
Kate has to make a decision. Is it time to get back to work and put all of that education & experience to good use or tell Jack to take a hike? Is Kate willing to take her devoted companion(Mutt)which happens to be 1/2 husky & 1/2 wolf along with her to track what on earth could have happened to this Park Ranger & the detective that was sent in after him?
Kate has to deal with her formidable, demanding & manipulating grandmother which is Tribal Native Chief, Ekaterina Shugak, when she suspects that one of her own family members may be involved. Just to spice everything up the local state trooper, Jim Chopin, seems to keep popping up.
Excellent read.....and series.
& hope there are many more in future - not all the books are short. I just ordered books #11 thru #21 (going on vacation & need some good reads). I've really enjoyed Kate Shugak's no nonsense manners and her wonderfully expressive/protective Mutt. Spoiler - suggestion: get book # 9 & #10 together - can't remember last time I cried while reading a book but did while reading book #9 - #10 got me back on track. Don't remember how I came across Dana Stabenow's Kate Shugak books (maybe because listed under Diana Galbadon's Methadone book list ??) - but liked the hat tip to Diana Galbadon's Jamie Frasier in one of the books as Kate mentions him. The build ups are slow with lots of Alaska history (of which I know nothing but found very interesting), wild crazy Berring Sea fishing and very interesting cast of characters with family/friends dynamics. I've wondered if Dana Stabenow enjoy's diet 7 up and if her characters are based on people she knows. Just keep Kate as the main character - she is the reason I buy these books - if you want to do take off series (Chopper Jim etc) write another set of books (like D. Galbadon has done with Lord John Grey). Thank you Dana Stabenow & keep them coming... great reading.
Kate Shugak is one of my favorite female characters of all time. Tough and determined, she is also damaged and flawed - in other words, a very real, very human character. Kate is Aleut, raised by her grandmother Ekaterina, a former Tribal Council she grew up in The Park, "twenty million acres, almost four times the size of Denali National Park but with less than one percent of the tourists." Occupied by Native Aleut and a collection of oddballs and "stay away from them or you will get your ass shot - and you might be dinner as well" types, The Park is a wonderland - and a cold, heartless land where the slightest misstep could mean a brutal death.
The story itself has been well described by others, and you get the gist from the summary. What I want to tell you about is the world of Kate and her tribe. The Aleut have suffered for centuries, first at the hands of the Russians, then the Americans, and Stabenow weaves that story in to her narrative - giving you a good idea of just why the tribal members could really care less that a rich little white boy has gone missing - good riddance to the Outsider with the rich and powerful daddy.
What is truly breathtaking about Stabenow's writing is her descriptive narrative - her true love for her native land shines out through her writing. And being a huge Marguerite Gavin fan, I am always pulled into all of the Kate stories.
Book Two, A Fatal Thaw, is now on Audible, and I can finally add it to my collection! There are 20 books in the series now (book 11, Singing of the Dead, is still not available on Audible, but hopefully whatever is keeping it unavailable will be corrected soon.)
I will warn you - if you like the first book, they are like potato chips - you can't listen to just one!
This review is for the Audible edition.
