This is the next in the Kate Shugak series, following on from A Cold Day for Murder, and this time around, Kate finds herself in the middle of what's going on, as she is the last person to come across a man who's apparently just 'snapped' and killed a number of his neighbours in a shooting spree.

There is, of course, more to this than apparently meets the eye - one of the bodies that is found is discovered to have been killed with a bullet of a different calibre. In other words, someone has taken the opportunity of the killings to try and disguise a murder, though apparently very few people in the national park seem that bothered, given that the victim in question is a woman with a reputation for stealing other women's husbands.

I read a lot of mysteries, so I'm often quite good at guessing 'whodunnit' and A Fatal Thaw was no exception to that, and as a result I didn't find it quite as enjoyable as the first book in the series. The next novel featuring Kate Shugak is Dead in the Water.
