Publisher's Summary

Two thousand people go missing in Alaska every year.

They vanish in the middle of mountain footraces, on fishing boats in the Bering Sea, on small planes in the Bush. Now a geologist known for going walkabout with his rock hammer has disappeared from the Suulutaq Mine in the Park. Was it deliberate? An accident? Foul play? Kate Shugak may be the only person who can find out.

But for the fact that Kate, too, is among the missing....

What the Critics Say

"Richly nuanced, [and] highly entertaining.... The book is sprinkled with wit, studded with exquisite descriptions of the rugged landscape, and filled with opinionated and endearing characters, including reality TV show producers, park rangers, geologists, and barkeeps." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    "about time Kate returned"

    I was thrilled to have Kate Shugask back in my reading/listening life again. This book was excellent. The naration was,also. No one in my opinion could render Kate and all the characters as well as Margarita Gavin does. The story was very interesting and it was a pleasure to listen to. I hope that Dana Stabenow has decided to keep writing the Kate Shugak books for a long time to come. There are many more stories to tell,I am sure.

    "the suspense was killing me right to the last"

    This was as suspenseful and as good as all the Kate Shugak series! So far I've never been disappointed.

    "This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One"

    This was a must read to find out what happened to Kate and Mutt, after some really bad things happened at the end of the last book. It felt like the tying up of loose ends. Solid writing and an outstanding combination of setting, mystery and characters. #21 of 21 in the series and the current last one. However, the series does not appear to be complete...from this reader's perspective. Want more and I'll have to enter holding with some one-off Stabenow works

    Story
    "Pass this one by!"

    First, I am a Jance fan but this book had so much filler and so much re-hashing of her previous novels that the actual story could have been narrowed down to about 50 pages. And, after a while, the narrator also began to get on my nerves.

    Definitely not one of her better works!

    Story
    "Another Multi-millionaire Author Shrills "
    What do you think your next listen will be?

    More of the Wynette and Liam story. They are much more interesting and have not been "mined" out.


    Any additional comments?

    Less of the politics, it ruins the reason to read fiction, escape from the real world. BTW, the stunt of issuing the book and waiting several months for the audio is about a cheap commercial trick as I have ever seen.
