Stabenow’s mysteries are set in Alaska and feature terrific characters and fast action plots. This novel is set in spring during “breakup” when locals are going crazy from cabin fever and the huge ice flows are melting and breaking up. A metaphorical breakup ensues as well, when Kate Shugak, an Aleut native who lives on a homestead and is supposed to be retired from her high powered crime fighting job in Anchorage, is called into action once again to find out who killed the dead body found near her homestead. Kate is awesome – totally self sufficient, smart and tough, a recovering alcoholic who has a huge Alaskan husky, Mutt, following her around everywhere and watching her back. I’ve enjoyed nearly all the Kate Shugak novels – this one is lighter than some others later in the series, which can get quite dark and introspective. This mystery is certain to appeal to Wyomingites who love to read about adventurous characters.
