Native Aleut and P.I. Kate Shugak has been working on a case involving the murder of a woman by her husband. Louis Deem has been the subject of investigations before, and he's never been convicted. When he's found not guilty, Kate and Jim and the rest of Nilniltna, Alaska, are certain that a man has gotten away with murder and that its only a matter of time before he tries again. A few weeks later a woman and her son are shot, the victims of an apparent robbery. But this time, Kate and Jim have a witness, and they're not going to let Deem get away again.

This was a somewhat dark story with a criminal that was easy to hate. He kept getting away with murdering his wives and then going on to the next woman and everyone in town knew it. The people of Nilniltna were a bit rowdy and quirky with bits of native Aleut culture mixed in making it an interesting place. There were some interesting twists in the book but a lack of character development kept me from really caring about Kate and Jim. Overall, a decent story but not as engaging as I expected. ( )

The only reason Dana Stabenow isn't listed among my favorite authors is I can't figure out how to do it. She's really marvelous. This is one of the best of the Kate Shugak series. Not only is it an excellent mystery (I had no idea who had done it until the end), but as usual, the characters are wonderful and the underlying irony is...um...ironic. Stabenow has also written some stand-alones about the Coast Guard that are also excellent. ( )

Lous Deem is apparently a serial wife killer, but can Kate and Jim finally get the evidence to convict him? Suddenly Louis Deem is dead. Who killed him, quite possibly almost everyone. Does anyone care? ( )

The theme of this 14th Kate Shugak is domestic violence and exploitation of the earth resources in the Alaskan bush. Kate and her lover, Sgt Jim Chopin, hunt down a multiple offending wife killer. The antagonist is really slimy--a guy you really want to hate. Stabenow showcases Alaska life, once again...who knew moose marrow makes a good french onion soup? The "aunties" affect Kate's life more and more, which is likely harbinger. There are .plenty of loose ends left at the end,...where's book #15?. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312937547, Mass Market Paperback)

Kate Shugak, a private investigator, has been working on a case for the Anchorage District Attorney involving the murder of a young woman by her husband, a man named Louis Deem. Deem has been the subject of investigations before, and he’s never been convicted of a crime. But Kate and her on-again, off-again lover, state trooper Jim Chopin, who arrested Deem, are convinced that this time it’s different—and he’ll finally be punished for his actions.

When the jury returns a verdict of not guilty, Kate, Jim, and citizens of Niniltna, Alaska, believe Deem has gotten away with murder. And when, a few weeks later, two people turn up dead after an apparent robbery, Kate and Jim can’t help but believe that Deem is involved…but what it takes to bring Deem to justice could tear them apart—if the real killer doesn’t get to them first.
