Bad Blood
Bad Blood Dana Stabenow
 A Kate Shugak Investigation, 20

KATE SHUGAK is a native Aleut working as a private investigator in Alaska. She's 5 foot 1 inch tall, carries a scar that runs from ear to ear across her throat and owns half-wolf, half-husky dog named Mutt. Resourceful, strong-willed, defiant, Kate is tougher than your average heroine – and she needs to be to survive the worst the Alaskan wilds can throw at her.

BAD BLOOD: One hundred years of bad blood between two Alaskan villages come to a boil when the body of a young Kushtaka man is found wedged in a fish wheel. Sergeant Jim Chopin's prime suspect is a Kuskulana man who is already in trouble in both villages for falling in love across the river. But when he disappears, both tribes refuse to speak to Jim – so when there's a second murder which looks suspiciously like payback, Jim calls on Kate Shugak for help.

Now Kate must untangle the village tales of tragedy and revenge if she is to find the truth before it's too late...

REVIEWS
'For those who like series, mysteries, books with rich, idiosyncratic settings, engaging characters, Strong Women and reasonably hot sex on occasion ... let me recommend Dana Stabenow'
Diana Gabaldon
'A darkly compelling view of life in the Alaskan bush, well laced with lots of gallows humor. Her characters are very believable, the story lines are always suspenseful, and every now and then she lets a truly vile villain be eaten by a grizzley. Who could ask for more?'
Sharon Penman
'Sparkles with energy and wit, and packs an unexpected punch' Publishers Weekly.
'Fast and furious adventure' Kirkus.
'An antidote to sugary female sleuths'
