Publisher's Summary

When winter's done, but spring has not yet fully sprung, much of Alaska turns to slush. Locally, it's called "breakup," and it's a…messy time of year. It's certainly messy for Kate Shugak; between doing her taxes, being chased by grizzlies, and getting shot at by feuding families, she has to cope with an NTSB investigation that hits very close to home. Then, of course, there's the body in the woods. And up at the old mining town. And…being Kate Shugak, somehow she can't leave well enough alone, and begins to tease apart a well-planned and surprising crime.

A less spectactular Shugak

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Previous books in the series have been 4-5 star listens to me. The story was less rich and complex than previous books in the series and the characters less fully drawn. As a more run of the mill mystery it still sort of works but Shugak novels are generally more than that and the culprit less monotone.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dana Stabenow again?

Yes, but worry the series may be declining.

What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

The performance needed more pacing and tonality this time around.
