Publisher's summary

New York Times bestseller Dana Stabenow returns to her enormously popular Kate Shugak series with Whipser to the Blood

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 nine hundred dollars 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.

State of suspense: listen to more Alaskan mysteries in the Kate Shugak series.

Critic reviews

“Gavin superbly masters the pronunciation of native names and places as well as the cadence of native speakers, making this title an exquisite listening pleasure.” —AudioFile, Earphones Award winner

“Featuring highly original and well-drawn characters, the novel is yet another triumph for author Stabenow and an excellent platform for narrator Marguerite Gavin to showcase her talent. Her emotionally charged and intimate reading moves seamlessly from suspenseful scenes to Kate's domestic drama with her foster son and state trooper boyfriend. Through every plot twist, Gavin keeps listeners tightly hooked and empathetic toward to the characters.” —Publishers Weekly
