Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Marguerite Gavin

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Stabenow’s long-running mystery series, set in cold, wintery Alaska, acquaints listeners with Aleutian P.I. Kate Shugak; her boyfriend, state trooper Jim Chopin; and their adopted son, 16-year-old Johnny Morgan. Marguerite Gavin's precise narration captures Kate's independence and strength yet also delivers high emotion, when appropriate, with a studied hoarseness. Gavin reads the painterly descriptions of the landscape with verve and excels at building tension as homicides take place that may be related to a Canadian mining firm’s plans to begin open-pit operations in a nearby national park. 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. S.C.A.
