Alaska aviation entrepreneur Finn Grant died in the fiery crash of his Piper Super Cub. Someone sabotaged his engine, and virtually everyone in southwestern Alaska has a motive, including his betrayed wife, his bullied children, and Liam’s wife, bush pilot Wyanet Chouinard. With few places to turn, Liam asks his former mentor Niniltna post commander Sergeant Jim Chopin, for help, and Jim quickly brings Kate onto the case.

Working undercover as—of all things—a waitress at Bill’s Bar and Grill, Kate learns over beer and burgers that Grant’s business had expanded meteorically over the last two years. After buying the closed Air Force base south of town from the federal government at a bargain-basement price, he became a fixed-base operator running his fishing, hunting, and flight-seeing business, servicing planes flying through the area, and most interestingly and lucratively, getting into the air freight business. But what kind of freight was he moving, and where?

The answers involve Kate in her most challenging case to date, one that starts with murder and quickly sprawls into a much larger conspiracy ranging from the darkest family secrets to treason and beyond. Restless in the Grave is a treat for fans and another outstanding addition to Dana Stabenow’s acclaimed and award-winning series.

    " While I love the characters and settings of Stabenow's books, the predictability that Kate and Mutt will find themselves into harms way is beginning to wear. Will likely not buy these new but either get at the library in the future or wait and buy used. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Brown | 2/14/2014

    " Am making up for lost time (January & 1Q84) and have been a reading fiend while home sick with a sinus infection/sore throat. Definitely the one perk of being sick. Another entertaining installment in Stabenow's Kate Shugak mystery series. Needed some brain candy after doing some heavy lifting preparing for the 2012 Tournament of Books (1Q84, Salvage the Bones, The Last Brother, Open City, The Cat's Table, The Stranger's Child) which begins today. What to tackle next? "

    " Stabenow at her best. Funny, wry, heartbreaking, and ultimately satisfying. "

    " Far from the best of the Kate Shugak mysteries, RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE at times suffers from the difficulty author's face in writing a series. One issue is how much information is necessary for a new reader to understand the character and the backstory. RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE is in many ways too depended on Stabenow's previous novels. Too much of this story is lost without the reader having familiarity with the characters. A second issue is how to keep the story fresh from returning readers. A change of location and a focus on new supporting characters are ways that series authors often seem to rely on when grappling with the freshness issue. Series are balancing acts. RESTLESS IN THE GRAVE does not fall but neither does it fly. Instead, the story stumbles at times. For one thing, the dog act is almost too cute for a serious mystery. For another, Kate's survival throughout the story depends on others rather than her own abilities. This tendency makes the main character more of a victim than a victor. "

    " Another great Kate Shugak book made even greater with the addition of Liam who I have missed. I took my time reading this book because I know I'll have to wait another year for the next Kate Shugak story. I loved this one and didn't want it to end. Great book, great series! "

    " I like all the Kate Shugak books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lou | 12/31/2013

    " My daughter bought me a Liam Campbell book a few years ago and I loved it. Since I have read about 90% of Dana's books, just finished Second Star my first of her Sci-fi books, loved it! !! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/15/2013

    " It seems with each new book Ms. Stabenow's prejudices are more obvious. Or maybe I'm just getting older and more intolerant of ignorance. "

    " Alternately made me want to move to Alaska or just visit for a VERY short time. Another mystery series for me -- like I need another one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean Heitman | 2/12/2013

    " Have liked all the books in the series, but this may be the best one yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/27/2013

    " I love Kate and Mutt, as always, and I think I like Liam, but the mash-up ended up with a few too many "characters" for me to keep track of everybody. Still, an interesting story, with lots of Alaska info. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pk Dennis | 1/15/2013

    " Pretty good, Kate's response to Liam is interesting... "

    " I've followed the whole Kate Shugak series, but this was my first exposure to Liam Campbell ... I think I'll have to read more! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 6/1/2012

    " I really like how Stabenow puts a story together, and this one has both Liam Campbell and Kate Shugak in one book. Arms smuggling through Alaska. Mutt, the world's longest living dog/wolf features prominently. Hooray for Alaska reads during the long hot East coast summer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 5/6/2012

    " Another fantastic journey with Kate, Mutt and crew. "

    " Not the best Shugak but OK. "
