In the eleventh Kate Shugat novel, Kate, a native Alaskan, is living miles from nowhere. She has no neighbors and no electricity--just the Alaskan wilderness and her half-wolf, Mutt. Having a history in law enforcement, she now does private eye jobs. This time she's focused on a candidate for the Senate who is receiving anonymous threats. This modern-day story is nicely juxtaposed with a tale of grisly murder during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1915. Reader Marguerite Gavin has a sonorous voice, rich and full of emotion; she easily delivers the wry humor that is so much a part of a Kate Shugak book. Gavin moves smoothly from accent to accent without hesitation, recalling multiple characters perfectly and bringing to life a main character you wouldn't mind being snowed in with for a few days.
