Kate Shugak, the chief protagonist in this series, is hired to investigate a 31-year old murder in Anchorage, and the murder rate keeps mounting. You may need to read some other books in the series to follow the nuances in this novel, or not - the author seems to have the ability to draw her readers into her web of characters and somehow they explain themselves. Read it, you'll love it.

This is an entertaining suspense novel with a complex puzzle at the heart of it and set in a beautifully described landscape. The themes are much deeper than you would expect from the book's opening chapters. What makes the book particularly enjoyable, however, is the people. After a number of novels with Kate as the main character we have come to know and love her - we have been with her in the happy times and particularly in the sad ones. As Kate investigates she is reminded of her dead lover Jack but is also indulging in a flirtation with Jim Chopin. There are some touching and also some very funny scenes as she begins to explore this new relationship.
Best read as part of the novel sequence so that you can properly appreciate the characterisations and references to events in previous books. A high quality suspense novel where the mystery is just part of the enjoyment.
