Overview

The fifth book in Dana Stabenow's Alaskan crime series featuring State Trooper Liam Campbell

Newenham is an ice-bound bush town with a six-bed jail, a busted ATM and a saloon that does double-duty as a courtroom. It's a wide-enough patch to warrant a state police presence, though, and Trooper Liam Campbell is it. Campbell has been exiled from Anchorage to Newenham in disgrace, busted down from sergeant to trooper in the aftermath of a mistake that cost a family of five their lives, to spend some time in the wilderness. Campbell didn't expect the job to be simple and it hasn't. From the (literally) cutthroat business of commercial fishing, to the paranoid misanthropy of the back-country prospector, to drug dealers, serial killers, and caches of forgotten war gold, he has had his hands full. Now he has a dead archaeologist, murdered at their own dig site, who claimed to be on the verge of a momentous discovery. Fans of the icy frontier, of mystery tinged with a frisson of romance, of laconic lawmen with good intentions, of tai chi and small aircraft piloting take note: Liam Campbell is for you.

Reviews

"The vivid descriptions, rich characterizations, and compelling plot that distinguish [Stabenow's] Kate Shugak books, with the added advantage of extra sex appeal." —Publishers Weekly

"Rich and detailed... The past meets the present on the wild Alaskan tundra in [this] expressive mystery novel." —Foreword Reviews
