Kate Shugak will go to the ends of the earth to solve one Alaskan family’s epic mystery in this breathtaking novel from New York Times bestselling author Dana Stabenow

The residents of Alaska’s largest national park are still stunned by the death of one of its lifelong residents: eighty-seven-year-old Old Sam Dementieff. Dubbed the “father” of all of the Park rats—although he had no children of his own—Sam was especially close to his niece, PI Kate Shugak. Even so, she more than anyone is surprised to discover that in his will he’s left her everything—including a letter instructing her simply to “find my father.”

Easier said than done. Sam’s father scandalously disappeared after his birth, taking with him a priceless tribal artifact, a Russian icon. Now, just three days into her investigation, Kate finds herself being threatened—and worse. The flashbacks from Sam’s fascinating life, including scenes from major events in Alaska’s colorful history, punctuate a gripping story in which Kate does her best to fulfill Sam’s last wish. Meanwhile, an unknown enemy is on her trail … and will stop at nothing to make sure that the truth about Sam’s father stays buried.

    " In this eighteenth book in the series, Stabenow continues to hold my interest and enthusiasm for Kate and Alaska. When Old Sam dies, he leaves Kate most of his estate and a surprising request, "Find my father." When Kate is hit in the head with a fireplace log, forced off the road in a blizzard, and an old woman is killed, Kate's not sure if the events are connected. Does this have to do with fulfilling Old Sam's request? Is a stolen Russian icon at the root of these attacks? And how on earth is Dashiell Hammet, author of The Maltese Falcon and The Thin Man , connected to all this? "

    " This is the third book that I have read in the series. I don't know how important it is to stick to the order. I think I missed one in between but I seem to have picked up what I have missed. I really like the character Kate Shugak, Alaskan cultural. I think that it is a fun new series for me to try. "

    " I have read all of this author's books about Kate Shugak. Love them. Enjoy the beautiful Alaska setting and the very colorful characters of the park. Each one seems to get better with a more complex story. Also her pet, a half dog/half wolf, is always a welcome addition to whatever Kate is up to. "
