Aleutian private investigator Kate Shugak is on her way toward recovering from devastating recent events, until the ante is upped once again in a mystery novel that parallels the lives of its characters with their ancestors, the settlers of the wilderness of the America's forty-ninth state. Reprint.
A Native woman is running for Alaskan state senator, and private eye Kate Shugak signs on as her security consultant. When a campaign staffer is murdered, Kate's search for the killer takes her into the past, to the raucous days of the Klondike Gold Rush--when a murder occurred that would have surprising consequences for contemporary political candidates.
