Exciting. Familiar characters. Comic relief by Alaska spring thaw. Im reading the Kate Shugak series from start to finish; this was the most intriguing--each story enlightens Shugak's Native American roots, along with the difficulty tribal life faces. In the beginning, Kate faces a really bad day and I'm LMAOROF. This isn't really a chick-book...honest! It's a murder mystery wrapped in Alaska lore and executed by an off-the-grid Alaskan woman. Where's #8? ( )
