Kate is back in the Park, recovering. When she discovers that the local ranger is about to be cashiered because he opposes administration policy on oil drilling, she springs into action. All the familiar characters are there--Mutt is my favorite. As always, Stabinow illuminates one of the contemporary Alaska issues--oil drilling in the natural environment. Oh, and there is some crime involved and Kate solves it. "Chopper Jim" evolves and becomes a character we can enjoy. Where's book #13? ( )

A little predictable but not the "environmental rant" that other reviewers said it was. ( )
  cygnet81 | Jan 17, 2016 |
The 12th book in this engaging series, with Kate Shugak as tough and vulnerable as ever, the wildlife threatened and the complications of family, hers and others. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312989474, Mass Market Paperback)

Change never comes easy so when the news breaks that the new administration oil might be drilling for oil soon in a wildlife preserve in southeastern Alaska, home to P.I. Kate Shugak, battle lines are quickly drawn across the community. But for Kate, who hasn't been able to get back into her daily life ever since her lover's violent death a few months ago, it's a welcome reprieve from doing nothing.

Tensions run high when Kate's friend and chief park ranger, Dan O'Brien, is deemed "too green" for them by management and asked to take early retirement. Kate rallies the troops to fight for his job, but before she can really start throwing her weight around, a longtime resident is found brutally murdered. Alaska State Trooper Jim Chopin enlists Kate in the investigation, and it isn't long before she discovers that when it comes to the beauty and danger of living and dying in Alaska, nothing is as simple as it seems...
