Publisher's Summary

A mushroom hunting foray turns gruesome when Kate Shugak stumbles across a burnt, decaying corpse amid a grove of morels. Was the deceased the hapless victim of last year's forest fire? Why has no one reported him missing? And why wasn't he wearing any clothes? Absent evidence of foul play, the troopers are inclined to call it death by misadventure; Kate's instincts suggest otherwise, leading her down a path that requires her to confront issues of community, faith, and free will.

Very little story, very much preaching.

What was most disappointing about Dana Stabenow’s story?

I love the Kate Shugak series, but not this one. Stabenow spends the entire book minus a few chapters justifying her view of God, religion, the Bible, and those who believe in Christ. I suppose if I agreed with her, I'd like the book. But I think she's completely wrong. If I wanted to listen to her brand of "religion" I'd read a non-fiction book. And I very much object to her using characters and a story line that I love to try to convince me of something that is not true.

Not one of my favorites

It was Kate so I liked it as always but it also didn't end in a way that I liked. It made sense and all the lose ends were tied up but......

Marguerite Gavin did her usual wonderful job narrating.

I do wish these were coming out quicker. The last one was last August and now this one in March. Hope we get another in August.
