Publisher's Summary

In A Deeper Sleep, P.I. Kate Shugak has been working on a case for the Anchorage D.A. involving the murder of a woman by the woman's husband. Louis Deem has been the subject of investigations before, and he's never been convicted. But Kate and state trooper Jim Chopin are convinced that, this time, he'll be punished for his actions. 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 it's only a matter of time before he tries again. Sure enough, 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 determined that Deem will not get away again. Or will he?

Critic Reviews

"Kate Shugak is becoming a leader among her people and is already a leader in the sorority of women detectives." (Publishers Weekly)
"An engaging plot, the fascinating Native American frame, the well-developed characters, and the vivid depiction of the Alaskan wilderness add up to another strong entry in this consistently satisfying series." (Booklist)

You will be WIDE AWAKE during "A Deeper Sleep"

It must be very difficult for Stabenow to write a bad mystery book, as she doesn't disappoint here. This book is a bit more sombre fare than some of the earlier Kate Shugak stories, perhaps because we get flashbacks to earlier deaths from the point of view of the victims. The setting is the Park, so we get further development of the Park Rats we have come to know through the previous volumes and we become invested in learning the outcome of the events. I recommend reading as many of the previous books as possible to get more out of this story.

Dunne did a good job with the narration; however, those who have become acclimated to Marguerite Gavin's narration of Stabenow's universe (both the Kate Shugak and Liam Campbell series) may be distracted by Dunne's rendition of the voices. I am fan of Dunne's other narrations (particularly of "The Sharing Knife" series), so I wasn't off put by her narration, although it did take an adjustment at the beginning of the book.

Read this one & do not listen if you like the other books.

Would you be willing to try another one of Bernadette Dunne’s performances?

NO!!! She was horrible & cannot pull the characters off the page. I only finished the audible as I was on a long drive & couldn't read the book. She made everyone sound like school girls or cartoon characters none of which fit Dana Stabenows books.

Was A Deeper Sleep worth the listening time?

No, if I had realized it was not Margaruite Gavin & listened to a sample when I purchased it I would have read it instead. Bernadette Dunne should not be a narrator.

Any additional comments?

Love the books but this was painful to listen too. It was my fault for thinking it would be the same narrator as the other books.
