Publisher Description

In Singing of the Dead, the next installment in Dana Stabenow's acclaimed crime series, Kate Shugak hires onto the staff of a political campaign to work security for a Native woman running for state senator.

The candidate has been receiving anonymous threats, and Kate, who went to college with two of the staffers, is to become her shadow, watching the crowds at rallies and fundraisers. But just as she's getting started the campaign is rocked by the murder of their staff researcher, who, Kate discovers, was in possession of some damning information about the pasts of both candidates.

In order to track the killer, Kate will have to delve into the past, in particular the grisly murder of a "good-time girl" during the Klondike Gold Rush in 1915. Little can she guess the impact a ninety-year-old unsolved case could have on a modern-day psychotic killer.

Singing of the Dead

This was a lot of fun and very engaging book and it was very hard to put down. I would be ready to go somewhere and found myself not ready to go because I could not put it down. The plot inside the plot just kept getting more and more fun. A great read, just make sure you have the time.

Not As Good As Usual

Once again, Ms. Stabenow's characters and their development are really good. Ditto, the plot. However, I think that she overdoes the stylistic device of historical flashback. Good idea but a little overdone, in my opinion.
