Somewhere in the hinterlands of Alaska, among the millions of sprawling acres that comprise “The Park,” a young National Park Ranger has gone missing. When the detective sent after him also vanishes, the Anchorage DA’s department must turn to their reluctant former investigator, Kate Shugak. Shugak knows The Park because she’s of The Park, an Aleut who left her home village of Niniltna to pursue education, a career, and the righting of wrongs. Kate’s search for the missing men will take her from self-imposed exile back to a life she’d left behind, and face-to-face with people and problems she'd hoped never to confront again. The first novel in the popular Kate Shugak Series, A Cold Day for Murder established Dana Stabenow as a new voice in Alaskan mystery writing, and earned her an Edgar Award.

Ding ding winner ! The cast in this story are offbeat, and maybe a touch crazy, which makes them even more en...
I lived in Fairbanks briefly as a young child, and around my fascination with this mystery I found my tongue trying to curve and flip its way through exotic yet familiar words. I fell in love with Kate, laughed my way through the bush, and was reminded of how brutal, heartbreaking, and majestic Alas...
A bit of info-dumping, but a nice start to the series. Short, so I think I'll go straight to the next one.
