I've read a few books in this series (Kate Shugak #19). It's one of those series, that my OCD allows me read out of order. While I didn't like this one as much as some of the others, there is still much to like and not because they take place in Alaska.

I like the MC. She is fun and doesn't overthink every little nuance in her life. She is flawed, but navigates that well. She has a half-wolf dog for a sidekick. And as always, I love the humor. It always puts me into a conspiratorial smile. I like

Dana Stabenow’s Shugak novels really defy pigeonholing. Yes, they are mysteries, but they are also an intimate look at life in Alaska (where writer Stabenow was born and raised,) and an ongoing set of vignettes about a unique special woman: Kate Shugak. One of my favorite things about this series (Stabenow has several series, as well as some freestanding thrillers and several works in anthologies) is that the characters grow, change, age, and—yes—die. This series works well both in its serial fo ...more

First, I haven't yet read any of the Liam Campbell books though the first is in my cue. Based on this book I am looking forward to that series. I found Liam to be humble, kind, and likable. He will make an interesting protagonist. And I am even more excited about the idea of getting to know more about his wife.

Second, Book #18 returned to its roots and gave me a lot of backstory on Kate and Jim, glimpses into life in the Park, and Alaska shining as its own character -- which is exactly what I wa

I have read the Kate Shugak novels from the beginning. Dana Stabenow started with characterization as her strong suit, and her characters are still well-developed, interesting people who are three-dimensional enough to learn from their own mistakes. But it has been a real joy to read along as Stabenow has gotten better and better at crafting plot, leading to intricate, finely-written intrigues that keep you guessing right up until the end.

Restless in the Grave is proof of Stabenow's skill with s

Far from the best of the Kate Shugak mysteries, RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE at times suffers from the difficulty author's face in writing a series. One issue is how much information is necessary for a new reader to understand the character and the backstory. RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE is in many ways too depended on Stabenow's previous novels. Too much of this story is lost without the reader having familiarity with the characters. A second issue is how to keep the story fresh from returning readers. A cha ...more

This is the first book I've read featuring Liam Campbell (though I do own quite a few of them). Well he doesn't actually star in this one, Kate does as usual but Liam is a secondary character. I really liked Liam and will definitely be digging into his series as soon as I finish with Kate's.

In this one, Liam asks Kate to help him with a possible murder in Newenham, Alaska. A pilot died in a crash and Liam's wife is a possible suspect so Liam has to step back and allow Kate to take over. However,

It's not just a murder mystery ... count the crimes: assault, kidnapping/imprisonment, fraud, theft, weapons violations, domestic violence, conspiracy, blackmail, B&E. You will have to read the story yourself to see which crimes are committed by the bad guys and which are committed by the good guys. Along the way, enjoy the sci-fi, historical, and literary tidbits and epic themes of shamanism, revenge, death and even birth.

Wow! I am excited to read this book...I love the cover.

Although this book takes place in Liam Campbell's town, it's really more a Kate Shugak story. Still, it's fun to have the two leads interacting, and the story was complex enough to keep me searching for clues right up to the end.
