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.

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.

Anthropological Study rather than a Novel

I downloaded this book because I had enjoyed one of the other Kate Shugak novels.Having listened to that fairly recently most of the Alaska "atmosphere" and references to the development vs jobs debate and the foetal alcohol syndrome problems were repetition and rather tiresome.The storyline was good but a little dis-jointed and the author leaves a little too much blank for the listener to fill in for themselves.I kept going back to listen to what I thought I had missed only to find the climatic moments she had carefully built up were not there.Very well read by the narrator.
