In Alaska, people disappear every day. In Aleut detective Kate Shugak’s Park, they’ve been disappearing a lot lately. Hikers head into the wilderness unprepared and get lost. Miners quit without notice at the busy Suulutaq Mine. Suicides leave farewell notes and vanish.
Not only are Park rats disappearing at an alarming rate, but so is life in the Park as Kate knows it. Alaska state trooper Jim Chopin’s workload has increased to where he doesn’t make it home three nights out of four; the controversial mine has seduced Johnny and his classmates with summer jobs and divided the Niniltna Native Association—the aunties are to a woman selling out—and a hostile environmental activist organization has embraced the Suulutaq Mine as their reason for being. It’s almost a relief when Kate finds a body. This she can handle. Until the identity of the body vanishes, too.
In this latest Kate Shugak novel, the smart, sexy P.I., her wolf/husky hybrid Mutt, and Chopper Jim are only just beginning to realize the fallout from the discovery of the world’s second-largest gold mine in their backyard. “Mine change everything,” Auntie Vi said in Whisper to the Blood (the previous book in the series and the first to hit the New York Times best seller list). And it’s only just beginning.

I really enjoyed this book. Great Humor, romance, quirky who dunnit twists and great characters. I had originally started this series on the 11th book and got hooked so I went back to the 1st one and have listened to them all. I've come to enjoy Marguerite Gavin's interpretations of each character.

One of the better Shugak books.
I keep returning to these books despite the fact that they are up and down in quality and at times I have been completely disappointed. Why? Because I love the premise. I love the small group of characters who live in the park featured in the series. Old Sam, the Aunties, Jim, Johnny, Dinah, Katya and especially Bobby. These characters are unique, funny, stubborn, loyal, mysterious and intriguing. I also love the setting. Alaska has its own life and stands as its own character... and the books in the series that warrant an above average rating are those that focus on the craziness of life in the park. This installment does some of that -- not enough for my liking, but enough to give her 3.3 stars.
