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.

Absolutely - love the whole series
Humor, romance and mystery all in one book
I love Mutt best, even though she doesn't say much.
I can't wait until every book in the series in available on Audible
I love these books and I think that so far this has been the best of them. Really enjoyed this one. Love Kate and the cast of characters that are her friends and family.
Marguerite Gavin does a wonderful job with the narration as always. I wish the next two would hurry up and get done on audio. Sure I could read them but for these it just wouldn't be enough.
Kate, who stands tall where others might shy away and let things slide.
Again, Kate, a person to aspire to.
The burning. Because it illustrates what happens when people stop thinking for themselves.
I was angry in the knowledge that this kind of situation exists today and that biggots and bullies will force their will on others. And although the end is realistic I wished for a different solution.
Will keep buying this series, the stories are great and the narrator very good.
