Publisher's Summary

Inside Alaska's biggest national park, surrounding the town of Niniltna, a gold mining company has started buying up land. The residents of the park are uneasy. "But gold is up to $900 an ounce," is the refrain of Talia Macleod, the popular Alaskan skiing champ the company hired to improve their relations with Alaskans. And she promises much needed jobs to the locals. But before she can make her way to every village in the area to make her case at town meetings and village breakfasts, there are two murders - one a long-standing mine opponent, and Ms. Macleod herself.Between that and a series of attacks on snow mobilers up the Kanuyaq River, not to mention the still-open homicide of park villain Louis Deem last year, part-time P.I. and newly elected chairman of the Niniltna Native Association Kate Shugak has her hands very much full.

Best one of the last few in the series

Lots of stuff going on. Lots of relationship stuff, lots of struggling to find self and life, good and evil. Beautifully narrated, this is one of the best of the last half dozen I've read. I know a lot of women don't like the physical struggle between Kate and Jim, but authors also have a right to feel what they feel, even when we don't entirely agree. I have mixed emotions about it, but I think she made it work. Whether it's a good idea is another matter and has nothing to do with the quality of the book.

There's a lot going on in this book, much more than in the last few. It was nice to see the Auntie's come out of hiding and become a real part of the story.

Good one!

another visit with Kate

not many series allow you to become a part of the world within as thoroughly as this one. The mystery is a bonus while you catch up on what everyone has been up to. I'm lucky to have discovered Kate and friends while there are so many books in the series and am dreading listening to the latest one while nothing else is available to download after.
