I love stories that paint a picture of a place and its people. The Kate Shugak mysteries do that for Alaska.

Kate's feeling guilty about accepting the Park rats' gift of a new house. But a new case and a good talking to puts things into perspective. Charlotte Muravieff is old money, Alaskan blueblood on both sides, and she has a problem: her mother's dying of cancer, and before she does Charlotte wants her out of jail. In order to get the three decade old case cleared, she wants Kate to do some poking around. Kate's poking has, as usual, a damaging effect on local politics.Lots of rolling around with Chopper Jim and a out-of-the-Park locale make for a change. Go, Kate!

What a treat to get to read another Kate Shugak mystery. I love these stories. They are a perfect example of why I like serial mysteries. The character development allowed is so wonderful! This story revolves around Kate's being hired to re-investigate a 30 year old murder case. I won't go into the mystery at all because I hate spoilers but I will say that -- unlike most of Stabenow's mysteries -- I figured out who the "real killer" was when the storyline was introduced. Oh well -- still, it was a great and painful journey to get there. Kate evolved a lot in this story too. As did her relationship with Chopper Jim. I eagerly await the next book in the series!

What happened to this character? Where is the guardian of justice? Suddenly she is all about Kate. Egotistical and self absorbed. She has always had a strong ego but this time it is way out there. My least favorite. It is still a compelling read.

A great little thriller! As always, once I start a book in this series, I can't put it down! Great job, Ms. Stabenow!!

I enjoy all of the Kate Shugak novels, and with all the Alaskan history and stories, blended with the power families in "A Taint in the Blood" was a exciting and fun read.
