Another Liam Campbell mystery, combined with romance and history. What better? Set in a small Alaska town, the discovery of a DC-3/C-47 embedded in a glacier sets ripples throughout the town. The mystery is topped off with a couple of romances and it's all a good story. ( )

Romantic, mystery. Liam is a State Trooper

The last published (to date) Liam Campbell mystery; another great tale with Liam and Wy, with a decent mystery that once again shows the ripple effects of crime on small-town Alaska, while developing their own relationship. The WWII history ties were neat as well, since the Alaskan experience in that period is unknown to most people. "BtR" leaves a lot of open ends for Liam, though, so the news that a fifth Liam book is forthcoming, probably in 2010, is definitely welcome. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0451209605, Mass Market Paperback)

Like a spectral presence, a hand clutching a gold piece emerges from the ice of a calving glacier near the small town where Alaska state trooper Liam Campbell is investigating the brutal murder of a 74-year-old woman. The hand belonged to an army soldier killed with his crewmates in the crash of the World War II army plane entombed by the glacier a half century ago. Although it takes several long and occasionally tedious pages before Campbell and pilot Wy Chouinard make the connection between Lydia Tompkins's murder, the source of her family's mysterious wealth, and the secret mission that led to the crash of the old C-47, fans of this series won't mind. A skillful chronicler of Alaska's extraordinary landscape and its eccentric inhabitants, Dana Stabenow does a competent job with a plot that lacks much drama or suspense; what little there is comes from Liam and Wy's on-again, off-again romance. --Jane Adams
