I am a big fan of Stabenow's books, especially the Kate Shugak mystery series. The Alaska setting lends much to the story, as does the cultural elements. This book shows us a potlatch ceremony, giving us a taste of the history and culture of the area, as well as furthering the story with the interaction between the characters.
I am glad these earlier volumes are appearing on Audible (can't wait for the entire series to be available for download.) I would read these books for the characters, the setting and Stabenow's writing style (the mystery is just the bonus.)
Gavin delivers -- always. She IS the voice of Kate and does well bringing the other characters to life as well.
And for me, there cannot be enough scenes with Mutt. LOVE, LOVE the interaction between Kate and Mutt.

I bought this from Audibles daily deals and was pleasantly surprised. The Alaskan setting is described very well, the great detail helped it to really become part of the story. The characters are believable, they fit right into the setting and you can see how their personalities are developed and influenced by their rural environment.
I liked Kate, the capable, independent gal that the police commission to root out, who among the locals may be a murderer. Her best friend and work partner is a female, wolf/husky, named Mutt who is quite a character. Kate's no nonsense determination makes it fun to follow her investigation.
Marguerite Gavin's narration was a little rough for me in the beginning but definitely grew on me as the book progressed. She adds a little something to Kate's Character. Overall a fun listen.
