I thought the strength of this book was the northern Alaskan setting and the insights into the cultural adaptations of the native Inupiats to the encroachment of modern life as in snowmobiles, liquor, cheeseburgers and multinational corporations among other things.

As a mystery it had it's weaknesses. Within the first thirty pages or so you were pretty certain which way the story was going to go and the eventual outcome. The characterization of Nathan Active as the culturally confused protagonist was good, although many of the secondary characters tended to be on the thin side.

For me, the pluses were worth the read and worth another look into this series.
