Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Alaskan P.I. Kate Shugak is expertly portrayed by Marguerite Gavin. Hikers in the local wildlife refuge and miners at the Suulutag gold mine are disappearing. The citizens of Niniltna, on the Kanuyaq River, are even more upset when a murder victim is found. Gavin finds unique vocal characterizations to keep listeners on track. Kate's sultry tones and State Trooper Jim Chopin's laid-back but businesslike characterization create good chemistry in this carefully paced mystery. Gavin also adds verisimilitude to the wilderness setting with her skillful pronunciation of Alaskan place names. Listeners will enjoy the twists of the mystery as well as the presentation.
