I think I picked this book up based on the beginning taking place in Dawson City in 1897, around the time of the Gold Rush. Then I looked at the back cover and saw that this was a Kate Shugak story and she goes to work as protection for a state senatorial candidate.

This is a campaign full of dirty tricks. Not to mention murder.

Stabenow goes back and forth between what was happening to the Dawson Darling and what is happening with the candidate. The Dawson Darling is basically doing what she can to get by. The candidate, a native woman (or at least part native), is receiving threatening notes. And then people start dying.

This held my interest.

I think I have only read one of her previous books and thought it was okay. But jumping back and forth in time and stories and being able to keep them both going and tying them up at the end is a good sign.
