Though Not Dead

March 16, 2011

 In book 18 in a terrific mystery series set in Alaska, Kate Shugak finds out that she has inherited a cabin and hot springs from Old Sam. Cleaning out his house in town she finds an old diary, then is knocked unconscious, not for the last time. Old Sam knew a lot of Alaskan history, and might have known the locations of a precious Russian icon, an unpublished Dashiell Hammett manuscript, and maybe  a map to a gold mine. Mutt, Kate’s half-wolf canine companion, adds some humor to Kate’s search. Jim is in California on family business, but young Johnny Morgan helps out. Once again, the “aunties” prove alternately helpful and infuriatingly secretive.

The first book in the series is A Cold Day for Murder, and the funniest is Breakup. For more about the Kate Shugak series and about Alaska, see Dana Stabenow’s website.
